as good a mother as you can be. robbi ludwig joins us. good morning. >> good morning. >> women actually feel more guilt than men do because we tend to be more intern personally sensitive. >> we're plugged into how others feel. we're more nurturing. so we'll feel a little bit more guilty because we take more responsibility for how our relationships feel and look. >> one thing we feel a lot of guilt over is wanting more me time. we give everybody a little bit of ourselves but never give back to ourselves. >> we have an idea that being a good mom is giving everything you have to your child. giving all of your time. really that's not the case. of course you want to give time to your child but you can't give anything if you don't nurture yourself first. >> true. >> take time in minutes, hours, days, a weekend on a regular basis because a happy mom has a better chance of being a good

9:50 am
if you feel you are doing something wrong change it. we're growing, right? we're always getting better. move on. >> another quick piece of advice is more realistic expectations, setting them for ourselves and talking to other mothers helps a lot, venting a bit. >> right. we internalize the idea of perfection. it's really unfair to ourselves. nobody's perfect. connect with other moms. you realize how normal some feelings and reactions are. that can be a tremendous support system. >> we are all in the same boat. >> we are. >> for more information on how to handle mom guilt head to up next, a great way to turn your leftover sunday dinner into a hearty monday meal. first, this is "today" on nbc.
