Uncomfortable truths about parenting

​Guilt

Guilt has its way of creeping into the minds of parents. But here’s the truth: guilt doesn’t define you. It’s okay to acknowledge your slip-ups but don’t let them overshadow the countless moments of love and care you provide your child.

​Treat regret as a learning

Maybe you opted for screen time to catch a breather, or perhaps you chose the wrong discipline tactic. But regretting a decision doesn’t automatically make it wrong. Instead of thinking about what could’ve been, use these moments as learning opportunities to grow and evolve.

​Tiny breaks

Recognising the need for downtime is a sign of self-awareness and self-care. Whether it’s a solo coffee break or a weekend getaway, prioritising time for yourself is essential for maintaining your sanity and being the best parent you can be.

​Parenting styles

No two parents are alike, and neither are their parenting styles. What works for one family may not work for another, and that’s okay. Whether you’re a helicopter parent or a free-range parent, enjoy your unique approach to parenting. Trust your instincts.
