Parenting is a hard job – and it can be even harder during a lockdown. We are trying to be all things to our children – friend, teacher and parent. We hope to ease their fears and create happy memories with them. We also try to keep an organised home. The jobs are endless!
Don’t forget about yourself. Remember, you can’t look after anyone else if you are not well yourself. When the kids are tucked safely in bed for the night, sit down and have a cup of coffee, ring a friend for a chat, read a chapter of your book or watch your favourite TV programme. Looking after you is important, so take a little personal time – you deserve it!
