There is no such thing as a natural mom

Hettie Brittz helps moms understand they are the moms they were meant to be

8/8/2016 || Seattle: While motherhood seems to come naturally to some, many women struggle with feelings of failure and inadequacy, believing if they could only be like that mom over there, their lives and families would be much better off. Rather than wallow in guilt and “shoulds,” renowned South African speaker, TV presenter and author Hettie Brittz wants moms to find hope and encouragement in (un)Natural Mom: Why You Are the Perfect Mom for Your Kids (David C Cook/August 1, 2016/ISBN: 978-0434710284/$16.99). “Every mom wants to be able to admit some aspect of motherhood does not come naturally and not all motherhood duties bring her fulfillment,” Brittz recognizes. “The (un)Natural Mom book gives you permission to admit this and to find what you are natural at!”

Countless women get bogged down in the Pinterest-perfect image of what a mother should be. They feel guilt for failing at cloth diapers, dreading school plays and missing the days of going to the bathroom by themselves, and as a result feel they aren’t a “natural mom.” Brittz, however, shows readers the idea of a “natural mother” is a myth and explores four primary parenting styles, guiding them to discover the strengths they already possess. In fact, Brittz believes each mother’s “imperfections” are exactly what makes her the perfect mother for her children.

Drawing from her years of experience working with children as a speech pathologist and adapting homeschooling to fit her own children, Brittz developed the Tall Trees Parenting Profile. Readers can take the free online test to discover their own unique Tree Types and begin to understand that they already are the mothers they were meant to be. Each type of mother is compared to a type of tree — a palm tree, rose bush, pine tree or boxwood — based on qualities the mother and tree have in common. By taking the assessment, readers can discover what chapters of the book to focus on.  In the stories taken from Brittz’s own experiences and the in-depth looks at “a day in the life” of four real-world Tree Types, moms have the opportunity to see themselves honestly and clearly and to find hope and grace.

Rather than being a list of must-do’s that will weigh worn-out moms even heavier with guilt, (un)Natural Mom is a unique resource for parents that will help readers:

  • Recognize how unrealistic our culture’s standards of mothering are
  • Move beyond the myths of “supermom”
  • Understand and forgive the mothers who hurt them
  • Embrace their capabilities as well as their challenges
  • Help fathers better grasp how to understand and support their wives

“It is my hope that this book will help all moms to embrace an important truth: From crib to college send-off, even the mom who feels ill-equipped for this important job is more than enough for her family,” Brittz shares.

Hettie Brittz will be in the United States from July to October and will be available for interviews.

Suggested interview questions

—In your new book, you describe yourself as an (un)Natural mom. What is an (un)Natural mom, and doesn’t every mom feel that way at some time or another?

—Having lived in different locations around the world, have you found expectations of a “natural” mother to be the same everywhere?

—What are some of the natural mothering myths you talk about in the book that are universal to moms all over the world?

—You categorize (un)Natural moms in four categories, comparing each to a tree. Why did you use a tree analogy?

—What are the four kinds of trees? Is it possible to be a hybrid of more than one tree?

—At the beginning of (un)Natural Mom, you encourage mothers to take the Tall Trees Parenting Profile you created. What will readers learn about themselves by taking the assessment?

—Society places certain expectations on women regarding what a good mother should do in raising her children. Have you found that the church has an even higher standard of those expectations?

—What are some of the stereotypes by which Christian mothers are judged, and how does that make it more difficult for her to embrace her God-given temperament?

—You write that you believe each (un)Natural Mom is exactly the right kind of natural for her child. Can you give an example of what you mean?

—You talk about unlearning ingrained habits through bypassing the obvious confrontations. Tell us more about what that means and why it can offer hope to a frazzled parent?

—Conflicts often arise among moms with differing parenting styles. How can knowing their mothering style help women with opposite temperaments get beyond the differences and be sources of encouragement for one another?

—What about the mom who is the perfectly pruned and punctual Boxwood Tree, but longs to be the playful and positive Palm Tree? Is it possible to embrace one’s own temperament while learning from the strengths of the others?

—What is the call to (super)Natural Motherhood? How does it relieve the pressure of perfection?

—Explain what you mean when you wrote, “Every (un)Natural Mom needs to crack in order to become a (super)Natural Mom.”

—There may be some mothers who, despite the understanding that God has given their children the exact mother they need, struggle with how to let go and trust God to work through them. What encouragement can you offer those moms?

—What is your hope for the readers of (un)Natural Mom?

Hettie Brittz is available for interviews to promote the release of (un)Natural Mom while she is in the United States July through October. To request a review copy, to schedule an interview or for more information, please contact Audra Jennings, audra@litfusegroup.com.

  • ‘(UN) NATURAL MOM BY HETTIE BRITTZ’

    (un)Natural Mom is a good read. I love how Hettie is so truthful about her motherhood journey. We live in such a judgmental society and having the courage to admit and publicize your “faults” is takes amazing courage. I hope this book can help other moms feel at ease knowing they aren’t the only ones being judged about their parenting style but also understand they are doing it their way which makes it right.

    Hettie Brittz’s book (un)Natural Mom is a refreshing drink of water for the mom’s out there who, like me, find that motherhood is sometimes a true challenge – a joyful one, but a challenge. She opens the book with stores of her own parenting failures and instantly makes you feel like you are not alone. She helps you to realize how unrealistic our culture’s standards of mothering are and move beyond the myths of the “supermom”. She offers a parenting-style profile to determine your own parenting traits and embrace your capabilities as well as your challenges. This book is a true guide full of hope that will help you realize your unique gifts in motherhood and how you are just the right mom for YOUR family!

  • ‘(UN)NATURAL MOM BY HETTIE BRITTZ’ **REVIEW**

    This book helps mothers “recognize the unrealistic” standards that society has put on us. Every mom plans to be, then deals with the guilt of not being able to be ‘supermom’. This book really gives a pointed discussion as a friend and therapist to know what type of mom you are, without the guilt or judgement. It helps you to understand your parenting style, and work with and through your challenges.

  • SHOULD BE REQUIRED READING FOR MOTHERS!

    I think mothers of all ages and walks of life can relate to this book. Hettie shares her motherhood experiences…her triumphs and downfalls. She wants readers to know that no matter what, you are the perfect momma to your kiddos. I would highly recommend this book to all mothers! It should be required reading to becoming a mom!

    This really could not have come at a more perfect time, seriously. Parenting is hard, but parenting special needs (mostly solo) is really hard. I can’t count the number of times I’ve questions my abilities as a mom.

  • A LIFE-CHANGING RESOURCE FOR MOMS

    (un)Natural Mom is a gem that has the potential to be a wonderfully helpful – even life changing – resource for any mom who takes the time to read it. In fact, the greatest compliment I can bestow is to say that I wish Hettie had written it 38 years ago…Hettie writes with intelligence, honesty, humor and passion, and there’s not one boring moment. I especially like how she can laugh at herself…One thought that especially spoke to me is … don’t force yourself or let the expectations of others force you into a “natural” style that isn’t you, for the Master Designer made you to fit the design of your children. Highly recommended.

    (un)Natural Mom is a fantastic book written for mom’s to help them recognize that they don’t have to be perfect in their parenting methods. It discusses how moms are criticized sometimes for the way they do things or just feel inadequate all on their own when comparing themselves to other moms. This book is just right for empowering and inspiring moms to be the best mom they can be in their own skin. I would recommend this book to any struggling or successful mom or mom to be.

    If you are wanting a parenting book that DOESN’T tell you how to parent, (un)Natural Mom: Why You are the Perfect Mom for Your Kids is the book you want! There is something so very refreshing found when an author is willing to tell of her own mishaps as a parent not merely as ways to build teaching moments for the reader, but rather as ways to build connection with the reader.

    Hattie Brittz’s honesty, authenticity, and observations create a wonderful blend of humor & knowledge. The writing style presented within the book makes it very easy for the reader to see how her own unique parenting style connects her to her kids. All in all, the book is fully meant to be one that encourages & validates moms, recognizing that we each are on our own paths of motherhood.

  • ‘UNNATURAL MOM: WHY YOU ARE THE PERFECT MOM FOR YOUR KIDS’ BY HETTIE BRITTZ *BOOK REVIEW*

    The introduction and chapter 1 is about the author, Hetti, and her personal experiences with being an imperfect mom—an (un)natural mom.

    She goes on to describe 7 myths in chapter 2.
    1. Every woman must be naturally maternal
    2. Every mom must get pregnant naturally
    3. Every mom must give birth naturally
    4. Every mom must be a natural at breastfeeding and continue as long as possible
    5. Every mom must be a natural homemaker
    6. Every mom must find parenting natural
    7. Every mom should keep all things unnatural away from her family table

  • ‘(UN)NATURAL’ NOT WHAT I EXPECTED

    This book was not quite what I was expecting. I thought there would be more about how unrealistic our culture’s standards of mothering are and moving beyond the myths of “supermom”. 6 out of 9 chapters in (un)Natural were given to the parenting-style profile and gave examples for the various types of parenting-styles. I enjoyed reading the different styles, but it seemed more like a “how to” book than a book on relying on Jesus.

    I was utterly delighted to receive a copy of this book because although my little one is only 15 months old I already am feeling the pressure of not doing enough and not being one of those perfect Mom’s. This book is a great reminded that I am a good Mom and I am just what my child needs, it helps one focus on ones strengths and also talks about ones weaknesses so you can look at ways to overcome them.

    I loved the authors down to earth approach, she writes in such a warm inviting way that really pulls one in and want to read more.

    I like this book because it gives you permission to be the mom you naturally tend to sway to. You need to realize who you are and that God made you this way. You are the mom for your kids because they are your kids! It is freeing to give yourself permission to be your own type of Mom.

    The author breaks down Moms into 4 main categories giving examples and strengths for each. There is a reflection at the end of each mom type to help you digest what you learn and think further.

  • FRESH TAKE ON FAMILIAR TOPIC

    What I liked most, perhaps, was the fresh content. Like most moms, I’ve read many parenting self-help books with only slight twists on the same topics, but this one had a unique spin on things. On top of that, Brittz’s insights into temperament and personality-types were spot-on. I know many people don’t care for labels, seeing them as putting people in a box. Personally, I find them helpful. They help me to define edges, to discern placement, and they enhance my understanding. Brittz is careful to add a disclaimer to the effect that not every single trait described for a certain type will apply, and this certainly was the case for me. But I found enough resonance to render her conclusions credible.

    As you spend time with in the pages of this book the lessons that are learned are priceless. I have gained such a greater understanding of what temperament really means and how to truly manage it as well as use it in a positive manner while training up my children. We are all uniquely created there is no doubt about that. But we need to accept we are all uniquely created there is no doubt about that. But we need to accept and embrace how you make sleep we were created to be so that we can truly do all that the Lord has for us to do.

    I really enjoyed the author’s writing style. I found myself laughing or sharing little pieces of the book to my friends or husband as I read. Brittz is honest and open about her faults and fails as well as her positives. She takes an upbeat, positive look at each personality and provides concrete ways that we can change the negative and enhance the positive. She uses her faith to weave a message of hope and promise for each reader. At the end of each chapter are reflective questions that help a mom to focus on what is important in her mothering journey. My only negative is that you have to purchase the Tall Trees Parenting Profile, and it isn’t cheap.

    The book is written in such a way it takes the pressure off the mom. As I read about author Hettie’s inadequacies, as a young mom, I was able to let go of some of my misfortunes. For me it seemed every other mother was a natural, while I was struggling. Every other mother could probably tell I was struggling, but I was not about to admit it to them or myself. God did not make us to be some other mom. He made us to be mom to our own children, whatever that may look like.

    I like how personal the author is. Most moms just want someone who is willing to share that life isn’t perfect, but not just leave them there – but point them to SCripture. I think the author does this well. I don’t think you need to include schedules because some women might not relate – but all in all a good book.

  • A INSPIRATIONAL AND FREEING READ!

    Thankfully, in Hettie Brittz’s book, she debunks the myths that fuel my feelings in those “fail moments”. We are not all made to be the same type mom, it is okay if we are imperfect. Who gets to say what’s perfect anyway, right? Brittz shares how we can embrace our temperaments and even our flaws all while being the perfect mother for our kids. She has really reminded me that, although I am not perfect by the world’s standards, God knew exactly what he was doing when he chose me as the mother of my son.

  • ‘(UN)NATURAL MOM’ BY HETTIE BRITTZ

    There are so many books out there on parenting that it’s hard to find one that offers a unique perspective that might bring some enlightenment to the reader. Hettie Brittz does just that in (un)Natural Mom: Why You are the Perfect Mom for Your Kids.

    This book delivers a unique perspective on mothering that provides some relief to the mad race of raising perfect children while not being a perfect person. It allows moms to see themselves-the good; the bad; the ugly-and realize God created us to parent our children and their needs just the right way.

  • ‘(UN)NATURAL MOM’ BY HETTIE BRITTZ — A REVIEW

    I can’t say enough good things about this book. It is something I will go back and reread parts of for years to come. In the world we live in, where it is so easy to share only the “best of…” pieces of our lives, it is a refreshing reminder that everyone has faults, not everyone is a natural at everything, and everyone has good qualities as well.

  • ‘(UN)NATURAL MOM: WHY YOU ARE THE PERFECT MOM FOR YOUR KIDS’ BOOK REVIEW

    Brittz does an amazing job of showing you that you are a great mom based on your parenting style/personality. I would recommend this book to any struggling mom out there looking to see that they are really the best mom for their children.

  • BEING AN ‘(UN)NATURAL MOM: WHY YOU ARE THE PERFECT MOM FOR YOUR KIDS’

    In the book, (un) Natural Mom by Hettie Brittz, she brought so much into perspective. I learned a lot about myself, and was encouraged that I’m not the only one struggling in this beautiful mess of a ministry. By chapter 2-I was in tears.

    There are about 5 different profiles that Hettie describes. She gives the good, the bad, and the scriptures to wrap it all up. I would be so bold as to say this could very well help heal the wounds we mamas have inflicted on ourselves by focusing on our shortcomings. It exposes those, but illuminates our strengths that we seem to just skim over.

  • ‘(UN)NATURAL MOM’ {A LITFUSE PUBLICITY GROUP REVIEW}

    I really, really felt empowered by this book. I’ve read about temperaments and personalities before, but I’ve never felt like there was a tool that totally got me as a parent and my parenting style before. I also loved that Brittz uses the example of one mom for each of the four main chapters because I felt that, by focusing on her life, I could really picture what it would be like to live as a mom with that temperament

  • ‘BEING THE BEST THAT YOU CAN BE FOR YOUR KIDS: (UN)NATURAL MOM’ BY HETTIE BRITTZ

    Hettie encourages mothers by offering hope and discovery through stories of her own as well as others. To be honest, mothering has always come naturally to me. Perhaps it’s because I’ve always wanted to become one and felt tremendously blessed on the day that I did.

  • ‘(UN) NATURAL MOM BY HETTIE BRITTZ’ BOOK TOUR AND BOOK REVIEW

    Author Hettie Brittz has given a lot of mothers just what they need to hear. Sometimes mother’s seem to in competition everyday with the mother next door. The author tells of different experiences that many mothers have probably had happen to them. Some of her experiences are hard to read about and some were kind of told in a funny way. As a grandmother I really liked the book. It was a very nice story and offered hope for troubled mothers who thought they were doing it wrong. I give this book a 5/5. I was given this book for a review and these are all my opinions.
