The Enneagram & Motherhood: How Your Type Affects Your Parenting Style

How does your Enneagram Type influence motherhood and your parenting style? We asked 9 moms to tell us exactly that. 

The Enneagram could easily be described as the the newest and oldest personality test to hit meteoric stardom in the last couple of years. An amalgam of ancient theories and ideas, the popular modernized version breaks them down into 9 primary personality types, each assigned a number.

As more people discover their Enneagram Type and how it affects their careers and relationships, its popularity grows. Focusing not only on your strengths, the Enneagram pinpoints your weaknesses and helps you to see whether you are functioning at “healthy” or “unhealthy” levels according to your number.
