One of the most demanding aspects of motherhood is leading by example. How can you find that balance between raising children and empowering yourself all at the same time? How can you find enough confidence in yourself to then pass on to your children? Who better to answer these questions than this week’s guest Liba Yoffe? Together, Jodi and Liba discuss the importance of empowering oneself and what you can do to set both you and your children up for self-fulfillment and confidence, even in the face of adversity.

Show Notes:

5:55 Finding a balance between motherhood and empowering oneself

“I knew that in order to raise a confident daughter, I needed to be fully confident within myself to really be that example for her.”

8:01 Reconciling confidence and modesty

10:42 Helping your children feel comfortable in athletics

“Embody what you’re trying to encourage in your daughter. If you want her to go on a run, go on a run with her. Whole her that you’re doing it too, in a skirt, with your hair covered, whatever it takes.”

15:41 Instilling self-confidence in your children when facing adversity

“We have this organization called Hairoes, we hold events for kids with alopecia and we have support groups for the parents, and we started that because we saw how many parents were so distraught and whatever the parents thought, that’s what the kids thought.”

18:37 Finding confidence within yourself so you can pass it on your children

“As moms it’s so important to know that while we care so much about our children and we’ll go fight for them, if we go and do that, we also have to do that for ourselves.”
