Parenting for the Busy Household

Parenting for the Busy Household
Parenting is a challenge. You want your child to reach full potential and win at life. Of course, this takes time and organization to manage life’s priorities -- being there for your kids while succeeding in other areas of life.

You shouldn’t feel guilty to steal hours before the sun comes up to have some personal time. There’s no need to feel bad when you aren’t too busy for some private time. You’re not selfish when you take time for yourself.

It’s hard to be patient, creative and parent well without some self care. Raising children is a marathon, so you have to prepare for the race. You’re a role model and you have to manage your energy.

Self care looks different after you have children than it did before parenting.

Listen as Julie Morgenstern joins Dr. Pamela Peeke to discuss how to balance parenting with personal time.
