Peer Reviews for Mothers
Michelle Fletcher encourages you with the possibility of a mother’s peer review. Because even if you’re not paid to be a mother, you can still benefit from a little feedback to sharpen your skills.
What would happen if your adult children were to peer review you about how you did as a mother?
NB: Of course, our kids should never be our peers. As parents, we mothers are the older generation to our children. So in reality they cannot friends. Although yes, they can be very close to us.
Here are Michelle’s questions about Peer Reviews for Mothers. These are questions you might ask your children when they are adults as they reflect on their childhood.
- What would they say about being emotionally available?
(Remember the four S’s: To be Seen, Safe, Secure and feel Soothed.)
- How’s my willingness to have fun with my children?
- Can they trust me?
- Am I fair?
- Am I honest? Can I be relied upon to keep my word?
- Do they see me saying sorry?
- Are my values as much about what I say as what I do?
- Is my own self-esteem healthy? How do I talk about myself in from of my children?
- Do I live the values I teach? If the kids do not see my values, then what are they seeing?
