Moms Are People Too

Presented by: Angela Baker

Do you ever go mechanically through the motions of the day, feeling more like a robot than a person? Maybe you’ve experienced being treated like a machine and are familiar with the calls of: “Here Mom, hold this.” “Hey Mom, I need a ride.” “I’m hungry! What’s for dinner?" Perhaps you’ve even treated yourself as a robot by ignoring your own needs—pushing relentlessly to do more, be more, fix more. If so, you’ve felt the very real pain of "Mom’s-a-Robot" syndrome. But moms are people too! Measuring yourself in terms of output and effectiveness detaches you from your innate power and your ability to experience joy. Allowing your needs to rank last on the family’s list doesn’t serve anybody very well and in the long term affects you and your family alike: stress multiplies, health wanes, and zest for life flickers faintly. Moms must be people first—only as people are moms powerful. Discover the Six People Principles for moms. Learn how to replace the pain of the "Mom’s-a-Robot" syndrome with the power and peace moms are meant to have.

In order to inspire youth to dig deep and engage in a rigorous scholar experience, Angela founded Erda Youth Leadership Academy. She is a mentor for Elevation—Williamsburg Academy’s outdoor high school leadership program—where she invites youth to challenge themselves by climbing rock walls and rappelling over cliffs. She is a certified relationship coach through Townsend Relationship Center. Her formal education includes a bachelor’s in family science and a master’s in education. A cherished highlight of her homeschool journey and years of motherhood is the happy hours of reading to her children.
