Parents be kind to yourselves: COVID Stage 4
We enter yet another incredibly difficult period. You are the anchors for your family but it is more important than ever that you are looking after you.
So Mums and Dads...
Make sure you focus only on the things within your control
Be mindful of when and how you consume news and information
Do something for yourself everyday, and remember everyone’s “something” is different
Reduce expectations of yourself and others around you
Be comfortable with your home being messy and the kitchen dishes on the bench
It is absolutely okay if at dinner time everyone is still wearing pyjamas
Screens and junk food will give you the break you deserve
It is not your job to everything to everyone all the time….especially in Stage 4 Lockdown
