I don’t know about you, but I am so relieved that I was almost done raising my kids when social media really took off.
As a parent, I was already well aware of areas where I fell short. I certainly didn’t need to have my cell phone buzzing to notify me of my failings throughout the day.
This specific problem didn’t start with social media. When you think about it, we’ve been told that we don’t measure up ever since the first “Apple” was placed in our hands.
While we are often quick to point our fingers at all the ways social media has affected how we see ourselves, it is not solely to blame. We need to learn for ourselves and then teach our children how to responsibly navigate through it.
For Instance, Daniel needed to understand Babylon in order to be an influence to those in Babylon. If we are intentional, we can see social media as – and use it to be – a place to inspire.
So how do we navigate this world of social media where we, as mothers, tend to evaluate our worth?
In this week’s episode, I get to have a great conversation with social media expert, Tonya Kubo, who helps communicators manage their online presence.
Tonya and I will be talking, mom to mom, about our own struggles with navigating our worth as mothers in the world of social media.

* Do we hold ourselves to the same standards we ask of our children?
* Are we basing what we do on how it will look on Social Media, or do we actually enjoy it?

* We all have a choice to participate or not participate
You are going to be relieved as well as encouraged by our discussion. We will show you just how easy it is to go from mom zero to mom hero,

How has social media affected the way you measure your value?
