PAP 004: Neglecting Your Own Self-Care Could Actually Be Making Your Child’s ADHD Behavior Worse

March 23, 2017

One of the most important things we can do to be successful and effective parents, is to take time for ourselves — time to recharge, rejuvenate, recenter, and reclaim a mindful existence. Parents (especially moms, {wink, wink}) make kids and spouses top priority and only then then consider something for ourselves, if there’s time (there’s never time when you have kids. never. ever.). The oxygen mask theory applies to life though, you have to put the oxygen mask on yourself first to be able to do your best for others. That’s a fact! It takes determination and learning to say “no,” but you can take time for yourself. Permission granted.

Let's chat more about how important parent self-care is, and how to get time to yourself no matter how hectic your life is. Enjoy episode 004: Neglecting Your Own Self-Care Could Actually Be Making Your Child's ADHD Behavior Worse.
