Loving a Recovering Perfectionist Mum

In a mother's survey conducted last year, the majority of those surveyed showed signs of poor emotional well-being; experiencing anxiety and worry, anger and frustration, and guilt regularly.

About more than half (51.7%) of them rated themselves at a stress level of 7 or more out of 10 (with 10 being completely stressed). 

In this episode, Joanna Koh-Hoe, CEO of Focus on the Family Singapore chats with Vicky Ho about the needs of mums and what a Recovering Perfectionist (RP) can look out for in parenting their children.

Vicky is a working mum who finds comfort and joy in a good chat with friends over coffee. Every day can be a juggling act as she strives to be fully present for her two young boys (aged 8 and 3). While life can sometimes spin out of control, she is thankful for her husband's constant encouragement and humour.
