Eat the Rules with Summer Innanen

I’m interviewing Olivia Scobie, social worker and author of Impossible Parenting, about the culture of impossible parenting, its impact on our mental health, and how we need a shift from self-care to self-parenting.
Show notes:
In this episode, we chat about:
- How Olivia’s own experiences led her to work in perinatal mental health,

- What the culture of impossible parenting is and that it’s very outwardly oriented,
- How diet culture has permeated into the culture of impossible parenting,
- That it’s normal to have contradictory feelings, because it’s not possible to fully escape impossible parenting or diet culture, so you need to be gentle with yourself,
- How parenting involves a lot of guilt, and a question to ask yourself to help you through it,
- What self-parenting is and how to navigate it,
Plus so much more!
