One of the first steps to be a good parent and set good examples is to be kinder to yourself. Whether you are a new parent, parenting tantrum-throwing teenagers, have a house full of young ones or co-living with older children, it is crucial that you be mentally resilient and practice some care-giving. Get good sleep, eat healthy, exercise, indulge in some me-time and take help from your family when you can to decompress and be a happy parent.
Practising these easy mantras are some of the ways to be a better parent and not let the panic or the fears of ‘not doing it all’ get to you. Remember, you are not alone. So, taking it one day at a time can help take a better grasp of things around you.
