Having children is very rewarding, but being a parent isn't easy. The truth is, parenting is complicated and takes a lot of emotional and psychological energy.
We all feel frustrated, overwhelmed or depressed at certain times, but there are ways you can take care of yourself so those feelings don't get in the way of being a good parent.
I FEEL STRONG WHEN...
- "I make a point of eating healthy and getting enough rest for my mind and body."
- "I've got an open mind when new ideas or challenges come up."
- "I believe in myself - I know what my family needs."
- "I keep my family to a schedule that allows time for the unexpected."
