Parenting tips for the summer
Being a parent is not easy, especially in summer when our children are excited about sunny days, and summer holidays. All that excitement and extra energy can be a stressful time for a parent because you feel like you need to provide constant entertainment as well as deal with your own things. Here are some tips for you and ow to deal.
-Let your kids be bored. By doing this you unlock your kid’s imagination and even though it might take a while, rest assured it will happen. And will benefit both your life and your child’s life. Older kids could decide to take on a new hobby which fill up their time and help them and could even be educational for them.
-Spend time appreciating your life. Often we can get caught up in other people’ reality which can be unhealthy for our mental health which then also reflects onto our children. Consider taking a break from social media and focusing on your reality and on the now. This will help you stay happy and present, rather than having any feelings of jealousy or depression from socials.
From taking a break from social media, you also become a good role model for your children, which can also get caught up in the glitz and glamour of social media.
-Stick to your structure. While it’s easy to let the structure of your life slide when it is summer. Ask yourself first if you’re going to be happy with possibly undoing any not-so-great habits once summer rolls to an end. This may include chores or slacking on homework. Which can later on, turn into a challenge for you.
