Dr. Amy Conrad is a board certified pediatrician and a working mom. She is the founder of Kinder Digital Pediatric Clinic and the host of the Ask Doctor Amy podcast. Dr. Amy is on a mission to help families raise healthy and happy kids by paving a more simple and natural path to parenting.

We live in a culture of wanting to optimize each part of parenthood and childhood, but this often leads us to believe that we aren’t doing enough. The goal of motherhood shouldn’t be perfection, but rather a focus on what we are learning along the way. I know I’m grateful for the mistakes I’ve made as a mother because sometimes the benefit is learning from the things that didn’t work.

The mentality surrounding our thoughts of, “Am I doing enough?” tends to trickle down to our kids and affects them and their mental health as well. Learn why Dr. Amy advocates her “Do less, connect more” mantra. If you feel disconnected to your kids in any way, it’s not too late to make changes.

Mom Card Drawing of the Week: “Happiness is not in our circumstance, but in ourselves. It is not something we see, like a rainbow, or feel, like the heat of a fire. Happiness is something we are.” -John B. Sheerin
