Remembere to take care of yourself

In the parenting classes that we teach, parents often times say they have very little time for themselves. This is unfortunate because your children deserve the best you possible. Parents should realize that focusing on their own needs helps their children. Most children, regardless of their age, will feel secure if they sense their parents are emotionally healthy. Making time for yourself, while often difficult, is important. Healthy outlets include counseling with a professional therapist, meeting with friends or support groups, or any activity that brings you pleasure. Neglecting yourself makes it difficult to be effective with your kids’ needs. Positive parenting through divorce requires that you have outlets for dealing with your own difficult feelings.
