Action Items and Tips From the Show

How to Become a Scream Free Mom

  1. Put your own oxygen mask first.  Remember, not taking care of yourself causes overwhelm.  Take a look at your morning routine-See the face of God before you see anyone else.
  2. Pause more-React less.  When we pause, we can find God.  This will look different for everyone.
  3. Parenting side by side not toe to toe.  Think about walking through life with them.  Remember, we are responsible to our kids but not for our kids.
  4. Screen Free Parenting.  Be the example for your kids to be fully present. Get intentional about your rules and do your research.
