Ep #51: Martyrdom to Motherhood


May 5, 2021

The Power Paradigm with Tawana Bhagwat, Radiah Rhodes & Dr. Roni Ellington | Martyrdom to Motherhood

The paradigm of how we mother often gets conflated with martyrdom, but these are not the same things. Society praises women who sacrifice and suffer for their children, yet also demands that we don’t raise them to be entitled.

With Mother’s Day around the corner, we’re exploring what it really means to mother. How do we embody motherhood and where do we derive that identity from? The way we think about a good mother in our culture doesn’t empower her, so why do we continue to lean into it?

Listen in today as we discuss the choice that is motherhood and why no one is actually forcing you to give anything up. You have the option to be present to being a mother and not present to the struggling and sacrificing. We’re sharing some advice for mothers who feel like they don’t have a choice but to sacrifice themselves and how our personal fulfillment benefits our children.


What You’ll Learn from this Episode:

  • How society glorifies the sacrifice of motherhood.
  • That it is possible to shepherd your children through the world without sacrifice.
  • What helped Dr. Roni reframe her whole motherhood.
  • Our advice for women struggling with feeling like they don’t have a choice.
  • How we cultivate entitlement in our children.
