Penny Parnevik is a reality star, podcast professional, influencer and mother of two children. We managed to raise her before her and husband Douglas Murray's third child is born. We talked about being a mother, to set boundaries for children and, of course, about getting siblings. That is, a conversation about being a mother and what belongs. And surely it is recognized?
“Although I think I'm a good mom, I also have a thousand stuff that I want to do better and it's okay! "
How do you see yourself as a mom, what kind of mom are you?
-Oh that's a pretty big question! I identify myself very much as a mother and feel proud of my role as a mother. At home with us there are more yes a no, a lot of love, but still structure/boundaries to hopefully create some awesome people. Although I think I am a good mom, I also have a thousand stuff that I want to do better and it's okay!
“I love hanging out with moms who do things differently or even much better than me! Instead of feeling bad, I get sick inspired! ”
What role models do you have in your parenting? (And why exactly that person (s)?)
-I love to hang out with moms who do things differently or even much better than me! Instead of feeling bad, I get sick inspired! Some who inspire me as you may know are my mom, Celie Sparre, and Danijela Rundqvist.
You wait the third child very soon, congratulations so fun! Are you talking at home with the kids about the feelings about getting siblings?
-We talk about baby in the stomach all the time !!! Since I have always longed to become a mother, I think it is so interesting mom children psychology books and even pods. I have received a lot of tips on how to introduce a new family member and manage all the different feelings about it. Right now it's just super happy and tagged feelings about Baby coming soon. And we try to get both children proud in the role of Big Brother and Big Sister!
"You should always give love and warmth and it is incredibly important to teach children about boundaries."
Does it feel important for you to be a good role model and show what is for real?
-It feels so important. But for the most part I just do my own thing, live my life, and post just that without thinking too much. Having a large platform is a lot of responsibility that I take seriously but for the most part I am grateful that it gives me the opportunity to live a flexible life where I can enjoy my family and my everyday life. I wish I could show even more "real" moments but I also want to take into account my children and what feels okay to share!
What do you think is the most important thing we can give our children? How do you think we can all support our children to grow up and become wise adults?
Love and structure are the most important thing in my opinion. You should always give love and warmth and it is incredibly important to teach children about boundaries.
