VBB 241: Katie Nave — The Gritty, Down-and-Dirty Job of Parenting!
Katie Nave is a freelance writer; she’s penned articles for Newsweek, Huffington Post, and other top-notch publications. She works at being effective as a mental health advocate; she’s a successful professional pediatrician in one of the world’s biggest metropolis — New York, but the role Katie struggles with most is the one she once thought would be her most natural, being a mom. Katie reflects on her feelings of inadequacy as a mother in a powerful article she wrote titled My Daughter’s Common Problem Made Me Feel Like A Failure As A Mom. Katie’s also open about her feelings of guilt as a single mom and how hard it is to keep from falling into the “I’m a shitty mom” sinkhole. This is a candid conversation about the often unspoken truth of motherhood.
