Can you be a “good mom” if your kids don’t live with you? With Carina Reeves
Can you be a “good mom” if your kids don’t live primarily with you?
This story touches on one of the more vulnerable possibilities we can imagine as single parents.
For Carina, that meant not having her kids live with her.
As heart-wrenching as that may sound, for Carina, it was a chance to grow and rediscover her sense of self.
Today, Carina has a powerful sense of self, she’s found joy and laughter in her home, and (with her partner) she coaches others through their relationships. She’s clear on what she wants, knows how to set boundaries, and she has a lot to teach us.
She’s also created a space and a life her kids enjoyed spending time in.
Carina shows how important it is to be true to yourself, and make decisions that are best for your family’s specific situation — despite social pressures that may tell us otherwise. She truly supported her children’s choices and life paths, no matter what that looked like for her.
We loved this conversation with Carina. It reminded us that every parenting situation is unique, and that we always need to remember the bigger picture for ourselves and our kids.
