Each of us has a different way of parenting our children. Some moms may prioritize creating a predictable routine, while other moms prioritize creating adventures for their children. The way we parent is partially based on our personality. What is important to us is what we will pass down to our children.
One tool we can use to learn more about our own personality is the Enneagram. Looking at the different personality types for moms based on our Enneagram can give us useful insights on how we approach motherhood. It can also show us some of our strengths and weaknesses as a mom.
