In today’s society, we attach far more importance to our children’s well-being than previous generations. This is a good thing, but it also puts enormous pressure on us parents, who, according to society, have a decisive role to play in our children’s development and mental health.
Many parents experience the frustration and stress of not being able to be fully involved either in their family or in their work and activities because of a lack of time and support from outside.
Being a parent is wonderful, of course, but it’s also a real challenge every day.
It’s important to me to break down the myth of the perfect parent created by society and our beliefs, which can sometimes make us doubt our abilities.
We all go through challenging moments in our parenthood, that’s normal and it’s especially important to take care of ourselves as much as we take care of our children. Parenthood is a marathon over time, so you might as well put things in place for today and for the long term.
You take care of yours, I take care of you.
