Overview

"Any moms who want more ease, confidence, and joy in their lives should definitely read this book!" —Kim West, MSW, "The Sleep Lady"

Unlock your ability to unfluster your parenting by identifying your anxiety style so you can turn frustration to flourishing

Many moms live under the weight of seemingly constant fear. They worry about everything from their kids’ safety and emotional health to that weird little rash on their ankle. They are the referees, social planners, medics, financial consultants, cooks, travel agents, educational specialists, family therapists, and housekeepers. It’s utterly exhausting. Unfortunately, it’s not just exhausting, it leaves them flustered. Most of us don’t have access to the support or resources we need to manage being flustered in a healthier way.

Women end up with symptoms ranging from “mom guilt” and “mommy brain” to depression, anxiety, panic attacks, substance abuse, and eating disorders. Moms are more flustered now than ever before. Even women who have no previous experience with anxiety or depression find themselves changed as a result of the physiological shifts, emotional isolation, hormonal imbalances, and unrealistic expectations that accompany motherhood.

The Unflustered Mom offers a healthy alternative for dealing with mom-fears. Moms can identify their anxiety, better understand their triggers, their clues, their contributing factors, and their false beliefs. Then they’ll learn practical tools that can help to dismantle the fears no longer serving them—turning their fluster into flourish.
