Welcome to episode 13. The rewards of being a parent can be huge – the excitement, fun, adventure and potential for great personal growth are some of the unmissable benefits, but on the flip side there can be a lot of anxiety, frustration, exhaustion and often crippling self-doubt that can leave you in tatters. We all need an opportunity to switch off from the intense responsibility, to re-calibrate and restore ourselves, just as we need to switch off from our demanding day-job. This episode takes a reality check on the thoughts and judgements around parenting and how we need to normalise asking for help to get the break that we need.
In this episode we cover:
- Why taking a break from parenting is essential for our mental well-being and our ability to do the job well.
- The unhealthy and untrue belief held by some that if you don’t enjoy your children all the time you are a bad parent.
- How, much like in the world of work, everyone has different success criteria with their own parenting and shouldn’t judge or be judged.
