Top 7 Parenting Tips

Learn to Relax

  • Control your breathing by slowing it down and breathing from your diaphragm.
  • Focus on relaxing your muscles; chances are that your brow is furrowed, your neck is hunched, your shoulders are high and taut and your fists may be clenched. You're in anxious mode.
  • Think about the non-verbal message that you're giving to your child. If they can see you are anxious, they will become anxious too.
  • Don't expect too much from yourself.
