Parenting Burnout: Is it OK and What Can You Do About It? with guest Dr. Mary Wilde

Parenting burnout is real. But how can we actually face that reality (instead of suffering silently with it), accept that reality (instead of stuffing it down or feeling guilt and shame about it), and do something productive out of it?

In this episode, we are going to get into these hard questions and discuss the work/life balance of parenthood. Is it a real thing and if so how do I find some?

About the Host:

Nellie Harden is a wife of 20+ years, mom to 4 teen/tween daughters, dreamer, adventurer, servant, multipreneur, forever student, and a devoted teacher, but her career passion is her work as a Family Life & Leadership Coaching, especially for parents of young women ages 9-18yo. 

Coming from a career background in marine mammal sciences, behavioral work, and a host of big life experiences, both great and some not-so-great, she decided that designing a life of purpose and freedom was how she and her husband, along with their 4 daughters, wanted to live. 

Her work and passions exist in the realms of family and parent mentorship because she believes that a family filled with creativity, fun, laughter, challenge, adventure, problem-solving, hugs, good food, and learning can not only change a person’s life but is the best chance at positively changing the world. 

She helps parents eliminate power struggles so they can focus on building their daughter’s confidence, wisdom, and respect as young women before they ever leave home.

With a lifelong passion and curiosity in thought, choice, behavior, and growth she has found incredible joy in helping families shift perspective, and find answers, and a path forward.


(Nellie has been coaching families for over 10 years and has degrees in Biology, Animal Behavior, and Psychology. )
