It can easily be argued that perhaps the most stressed out, exhausted, forgotten, and un-helped group in the last 6 months has been Moms. No matter how equitable your partner, and even if you are normally a Mom who works inside the home, any Mom knows that spending 24/7 with your children can be unhealthy for not only the Mom, but the children as well. When you take into account things like school closures, the fact that you can no longer simply take children with you everywhere you go, the disruption in childcare, and the description to child-focused activities and lessons – including playground closures – the last six months have been anywhere from difficult to downright impossible for most Moms.
Today we’re talking with Kristyl Clark, who is a Fraser Valley-based blogger and the owner of the blogazine ValleyMom.ca. She’s written a number of posts about the mental health of Moms during COVID. She also has excellent articles and resources for Moms that are always helpful, in case you haven’t visited her website.
Kristyl’s family includes her Hubby Jason, her own two Valley Girls Molly and Zoe, and her pups, Tucker and Hazel. Kristyl and her family always seem to always be out on some sort of crazy quest, from impromptu helicopter rides and wild river rafting adventures, to top-secret paranormal investigations and living the high-life of the Fraser Valley region.
