Parents Should Find Time To Be Alone

Whether as parents, we realize it or not, sometimes we feel so stressful and everything seems to be irritable. We cannot focus on anything specific, because our minds keep wondering about something that really affect us inside.

As a result, we may not give our full attentions to our love ones especially our children. We know that they deserve the best and our full support, but if our mind thinking of something else, their needs would not be fully attented to by us.

There's an interesting article by Margaret Paul, Ph.D., author of many interesting books including this one "Do I Have To Give Up Me To Be Loved By My Kids?". Basically, she explain why as parent we need time for ourselves and doing something we like or creative, so that we can give our full attention to our children's needs when we are with them. The article "Parenting Yourself When You Have Small Children" is very interesting to read.

There so much we can do, if we channel our focus and energy to doing it and start enjoying it.
