It’s Ok To Not Be The Best Parent

Parent Counseling Orlando

Parent Counseling Orlando and understanding how to navigate this awkward and bumpy road we call parenting. I am not sure I have ever met a parent who truly believes they are doing their very best. Many cover up by being a thousand things for their kids to feel as if they are doing their best. What if I told you that in doing all that your doing you are creating more resistance and making things harder for not only you but also for your kid?

Parents today are overly involved trying to “get it all done”. PTA, Little League Coaching, Bible Study teacher, personal driver, etc. When is there any time for you as the parent to recharge your batteries? Is it ok to not have an event or extracurricular activity going on every second of the day. This would mean that you as the parent would have to slow down and do less. This idea causes a lot of fear and anxiety for parents. You want to be the best you can be for your child. I understand that but if you do not take care of yourself, how can you ever be really present for your child?

Be there For Yourself First

Grab a Book and Read

I personally am not a huge reader. When I do however, I can enter a world of adventure and exploration. I rekindle my love for reading.

Get to your favorite Coffee Shop

Take time out alone and grab your favorite latte. Bring your book not your phone. Meet a close friend.

Start a Hobby

Having a passion or a hobby gives parents a stress release and a sense of purpose. What ever it is you enjoy, take the time and do it.

Exercise Regularly

Everyone knows the wonderful benefits of exercise. It releases the endorphin’s to help us feel a sense of overall calm and peace.

Get a Massage

If you can afford it, join a massage company and get a monthly membership. Share the membership with your spouse or friend. Your body takes a toll. Treat it well and it will return the love ten fold.

Go to your favorite Shops

Yes I am proposing shop therapy. Find an amazing sale, estate sale, or bargain and splurge once in a while. You do enough for the kids. It’s your turn.

Go on a Short Vacation without the Kids

I personally am a much better parents when I take a mini vacation. I feel like myself without the label of “parent”. I am able to be me and focus on myself as a women. Adult conversation is very healthy and appealing.

Start keeping A Journal

Write down your daily thoughts, goals, highs and lows for the day. Consider seeking counseling if your overwhelmed or stressed out.

Parent Counseling Orlando

Take the time to treat yourself with love and you will feel more engaged on all levels. The way I see it is that our children are always going to say that we missed the mark somewhere. We are not them and what they perceive as lack is totally out of our control. We don’t want perfect robotic parents. It’s only in lack that an individual returns one day to find themselves. Go ahead and take some time for you.
