We ALL experience parental guilt over one area or another where we feel like we might be falling short (aka being imperfect or human!) How do we allow ourselves to be OK with our life circumstances, allow our kids to struggle at times or not be 100% perfectly tuned in all the time and let go of the guilt? Erin answers a question for a mom dealing with mom guilt over her single parenthood status. Erin also shares some of her struggles with mom guilt over these same issues of not always being 100% available, over pushing her kids hard sometimes to do things they don't want to do, and over her own divorce.
