Love Your Child Month Tip #13

August 19th, 2009

One of the most important ways to show your child love is by loving yourself. Take the time to take care of yourself! If you are tired, ill or just worn out, you cannot be an effective parent. Eat healthfully, get enough sleep, take occasional breaks from parenting if possible, and enlist the support of family, friends and neighbors when things seem overwhelming. Organize your schedule, delegate tasks you would normally undertake and give them to other people, turn off your phone every once in a while, take a nap, visit a museum. Discovery Green in Houston offers a variety of free activities during its Healthy Living in the Park series — free zumba and yoga, bike repair classes, writing workshops and more. Whatever it is that re-energizes you, do it! When you’re rejuvenated and take care of yourself, you can better take care of your children.

 How will you take care of yourself today so that you can better love your child tomorrow?
