Taking Care of Ourselves


Stress is nat­ural and can be inevitable. Par­ent­ing is stress­ful, and stress can neg­a­tively impact your health and your effec­tive­ness as a par­ent. It impacts the qual­ity of care that you can give. When you are too stressed, you may be chal­lenged to offer the praise, nur­tu­rance and struc­ture that your chil­dren need.
