Screen time. The scourge of modern society. We’ve all seen the articles. Our children will grow up with small brains. They will be unsocialised. Our children will talk less than the previous generation. On and on the articles go. All sharing the studies and evidence that our children will basically become stunted by their addiction to tablets or screen time. Today I want to talk to you about why I don’t limit screen time and I rarely feel guilty about it!
Parenting. One single word can bring to mind so many thoughts, feelings, and emotions. For me, as a parent who also works from home, I feel like some days I am simply overwhelmed. Between wanting to keep a clean home, be good at my job, spend time with Daisy, and Thomas, and make time for myself the overwhelm can be strong sometimes. Today, during nap-time, I decided to write a post suggesting to you 9 things to during nap-time to help the rest of your day run smoother!
Lets be real here. Finding time for yourself as a parent can be tough. Whether your child is a newborn or twenty they are probably still taking up much of your time. My own daughter is one and I’m always struggling to find the right balance. Between working from home, my husband working shifts, owning an allotment, having family nearby, having pets and Daisy too there is always lots to do. Add to that wanting to get out more, wanting to have a clean home and wanting to find time for date nights and we are pretty busy. Time is the one commodity, besides sleep, that parents seem to want so badly. It is possible to find time for yourself but often by sacrificing something else. Now I’ve made a list of little ways that I’m finding me time as a parent. I also wrote about my first year as a parent recently.
