Balancing Work and Parenting

By  | 

It is common for parents to feel pulled in two directions: the need to support their family and the instinctive need to care for their family. When these two ideas are causing conflict, it’s time to re-evaluate. There are things you can do to better juggle all of your responsibilities.

GET ORGANIZED:

  • Plan ahead when it comes to important deadlines, meetings at work, your child’s schedule, etc.
  • Use your calendar
  • Be flexible when something has to change to avoid stress.

2. SPEND QUALITY TIME WITH YOUR CHILD:

  • When you get home from work, leave work behind. Your family deserves your complete attention and you deserve time away from work.
  • Relax together.
  • Turn off the TV and your mobile devices and discuss your day.

3. STRENGTHEN BONDS THROUGH RITUALS:

  • Routines and patterns provide security for your child and can reduce stress.
  • Make child-friendly meals and sit down to eat together.
  • Read with your child.
  • Do something special for your child like taking an occasional day off and doing something together. Work is important but what’s even more important; is finding a balance for everyday life and family.
