Working Together As Parents
Are you struggling as a Dad, as a partner or as a parent? Most parents feel like they have to choose between caring for themselves and being a "good" mom or dad or a good partner. When we sacrifice our own self-care, we get resentful and depleted. But how do we tend to ourselves in the midst of caring for our partners and our children, both of whom seem to require a lot?
It's important not to neglect yourself. And it takes hard work to wear so many hats.
Connecting with people who get it.
Mindfulness skills to help stay in the present moment;
Awareness of the parts of us that are involved in our reactivity: all the ways we try to manage the emotional and physical challenges of parenthood;
Leadership skills to bring regulation and insight to our intense feelings;
Communication and interpersonal skills to become more effective in all our relationships.
