My Mantra: You Are The Captain of This Ship

Stephanie Olson, a local mom of two, gets through the rough seas of parenting by remembering her mantra: You are the captain of this ship.

Local mom of two, Stephanie Olson sat down with Metro Parent’s editor-in-chief to talk about the mantra that gets her through the rough seas of parenting: You are the captain of this ship.

“There’s always 160 things going on in my head at all times. I don’t know if every mom feels that way — pretty sure that they probably do — stop and you just say something to yourself out loud that helps, at least for me,” Olson says. “So, I just think ‘I’m the captain, I’ve got this.’ I’m going to do one thing at a time and it’s all going to get done when it gets done and it’s not the end of the world.”
