Is There Really Balance as a Working Mom?

For these types of moms, finding balance may be defined as disconnecting from work when they are home. Leaving phones, tablets, and computers off during dinner time, and committing family time to weekends is one example of how balance can be achieved.
Find your definition of balance. Separate work from home. Schedule activities for self-care & childcare. Ask for help or hire someone (if possible) when you need additional assistance to be taken care of.
When you are more present, you are not only happier and less anxious, but you are less likely to miss fine details and forget important events both at work and at home.
Find a shortcut & simplify to find better ways of being together. No one is perfect, hence we need to learn to accept imperfections. Be kind, don’t judge, situation is not same for all.

For parents, calm your kids’ fear. Keep things in prespective. Share your opinions, experiences, thoughts& help kids in deciding. Inspire them, don’t influence. Offer reassurance that no matter what the situation might be, you will be there.


Parents Fighting Affects a Child’s Mental Health

Few occasional disagreements usually aren’t a big deal but if they become regular, then it might turn into an issue. Just because your fights don’t get physical doesn’t mean they aren’t harmful to your kids.Insults, threats of abandonment, any form of physical aggression, walking out or withdrawing from the argument are instances which impact a child’s mind badly which need to be realized.

Figure out the issues with matured conversations & look for solutions where both can contribute. If not, consider seeing a therapist.


Ways to Build Character in Children

When your child has the opportunity to make a decision (say, having to choose between two friends), help her take ethical action and see the positive results in her daily life.

Be a role model. Use teachable moments to build character. Tell stories from literature and life. Provide opportunities to practice whatever they like.
