One of the Worst Things a Parent Can Do

Updated: Mar 20


Let's face it, there are a lot of things that can go wrong in parenting and that's the reason you've clicked this blog. You want to know if you're doing this whole parenting thing right. Well, if you insist I'll tell you just what I think.
There are physical and psychological behaviors that contribute to poor parenting but this blog will not address that. What I will address is something that I feel is way more common, less extreme, but debilitating. Thankfully, it's one that we can all improve upon with awareness and adjustment. So what is it? Read on.
One of the worst things that I believe a parent can do is exhaust themselves trying to do it all. Managing adulthood while parenting can be challenging. There are responsibilities like bills and chores that often collide with the education, routines, and parenting styles that we aspire to have. Tackling these things with inadequate rest patterns only adds another layer of stress. It's a scary sight to watch an exhausted person try to do it all. It looks like falling asleep behind the wheel, stress eating, insomnia, addictions, poor health, harsh parenting, strained communication, depression, and more.

Trying to do everything is so unrealistic. I'm here to say that you are your best self when you are a rested level-headed human being. Trust me. If it makes you feel better none of the naysayers that comment on your ability to juggle everything has their name listed in the jugglers' section in the Guinness book of world records either. See? Take that food-stained superhero cape off and finally give yourself the rest you deserve.

In fact, be sure to pre-order your copy of "What Did We Miss," a children's book that highlights everyday family functions (chores and responsibilities) and everyday frustrations (like bedtime routines) in a humorous way that will leave both parent and child laughing and enlightened.

This project is LIVE ON KICKSTARTER until March 31st so be sure to pre-order before the deadline.



So much,
