Hey guys! I came across something pretty great that I thought I’d share with you all. I got the privilege of connecting with Ashlee Edens of Mama Imperfection an Instagram the other day and she introduced me to her Mom Bond Challenge.
What is a “Mom Bond”?
Well, to quote Ashlee, “A ‘mom bond’ is an emotional connection between a mother and her children.”
The ability to bond with our children is such an important part of their growth and ours. A lack of connection with a parent can leave a child with negative emotional and behavioral patterns as they transition into their adult life.
The problem is that “bonding” can sometimes be difficult. Life situations and personality differences can create obstacles, leaving gaps in the relationship.
The good news is that Ashlee has created a challenge via her book, Mom Bond Challenge, to help us get there.
How does the challenge work?
Basically it is a nineteen day challenge that includes photos and journaling, with some tips along the way. Since I am a HUGE advocate for journaling as an act of self-care and self-discovery, I was instantly on board.
How do I join?
Visit the challenge page for more information on how to do the challenge. I will be doing the challenge on my Instagram from Nov. 12th – 30th. I will be posting my photo daily with a tidbit of my personal journal entry. If you would like to join me on this challenge, use #FFMomBond and #MomBondChallenge to follow along.
