Parenting is hard. But being a parent doesn’t mean you have to stifle your most basic wants and needs. It doesn’t mean it has to consume you to the degree of self-sacrifice and martyrdom and you definitely don’t need to lose yourself to be a good parent.
If you are not happy, your children know it, moreover children suffer if the people taking care of them are not taking care of themselves.
Mothers who feel depressed are more likely to have children who act out or have other behavioral problems.
Researchers say that a mom’s satisfaction with her life is more important to a child’s social and emotional skills than how much money she has, the amount of time she spends with them, or whether she is working or a stay-at-home mom.
