The Supermum Myth | Book Review

We were sent a copy of The Supermum Myth for review. All thoughts and opinions are our own.

Have you ever felt as a mum that you aren’t good enough? Do you strive to be a supermum and often feel that you are falling short? Anya Hayes and Dr Rachel Andrew, the authors of this book, wants us to have more confidence in our parenting. #

I know I have struggled with confidence since having my children. I started to regain some confidence after having Jack but then got pregnant with Olivia, put loads of weight on and lost confidence in myself – and my parenting skills.

I want to dwell on the good stuff rather than the bad and make happy memories without feeling rubbish about myself. This book serves to help us parents using CBT, mindfulness and other established therapies to help us rebuild our confidence. This book helps walk you through your parenting, giving you solutions to any problems you may have.

With this in mind, I took my time reading through the book, taking on board what the authors had to say. I am the queen of negative thinking so needed something that could help me become a little more positive in my thoughts. Every mother thinks they need to be supermum – perfect with endless patience but that isn’t the case at all – it is a complete and utter myth. We are acing it in our own way – but we do become slightly frazzled along the way and may rely on freezer food a little more often than we care to admit.

This is such a handy resource for me to have when I am feeling a little down about myself as a person and as a mother. I simply need to take notice of the different techniques given and I am able to feel a little bit better about myself. This is a great book to help us parents when we are struggling to keep our confidence – it happens to us all and we get caught up with the whole ‘Keeping Up With The Jones’ thing – thinking we need to be perfect constantly. This isn’t the case – we should just be who we are and keep ourselves positive.

I would definitely recommend this to anyone who sometimes struggles with their confidence – you can pick up a copy from Amazon here on Kindle and in paperback {affiliate link}. I’m going to be keeping this to hand for whenever I feel my confidence start to dip.
