When parenting exhausts you try these lives hacks
Like any job, parenting is not a job but it needs you 100%. Every parent is different and every parenting style is unique. One common thing is that it exhausts you at many levels. As much as it is loving and fulfilling, it is draining also. You find yourself on the other side of the family; all alone and criticized. How do you relax? Try some of these life hacks and see if they work for you.
Why does parenting exhaust
It is important to check the reasons that make parenting exhausting. Children are very unpredictable. They make you cry as much as they make laugh. The main reason is their behaviour that hurts. Siblings argue with each other no matter whatever their age is. And the biggest irritation is that your voice goes unheard. This will never stop and I will be a parent always. So how do I deal with such situations and maintain peace?
Ask my God, why am I here?
I close my eyes and sit quietly for sometime in search of a place where I don’t hear these arguments. But is there such a place? Not at all. Still, I try to concentrate and ask my God, Why am I here? Why do I exist? And you won’t believe, I get answers in some form. You just need to listen.
In one such case, I came out in the lobby and started watching TV. A scene from the movie Viraasat caught
It instantly clicked me that kids make you laugh even in times of misery. No other than children have this capability of turning sad moments into smiling ones. And then I felt better and went back to my lifelines.
Stop giving instructions
I have understood that when kids argue it is better to be quiet. There is no point in becoming a referee. They will stop on their own and will be happy playing together the next minute. In fact, if you intervene and shout on them, you feel bad later.
Go for shopping
This brings peace and happiness to many mothers and I am no different. I actually enjoy going alone to either a bookshop or coffee shop. Even a stationary shop gives you so much pleasure. I like to sit quietly watching the world chasing their dreams. I become calm and go back to home.
Flip away old memories
Every photograph has a story behind its click. It gives immense pleasure to look an album and go into that time. You smile unknowingly and feel content. Old memories remind of good habits and time spent together.
Everyone needs a change and mothers need them the most. Life is completed because of kids. Love binds us together and we need each other. Kids teach us so many life lessons and patience is the most important one.
