Look after your own mental health
Be aware of what can make us stressed, anxious or depressed. Do we have a network of support - be that a partner, friends, school, or the local council's parenting classes?
Make sure there is support for yourself, that makes parenting less isolating, that there is space to offload. For working parents it can be really stressful to balance raising kids and working.
If we feel good and are calm, if we feel mentally well, we can better support our children.
