“Not until we are lost do we begin to understand ourselves” ― Henry David
This quote has been my go-to mantra for every challenge that I face, as an individual and as well as a parent.
Your mental health is the most crucial aspect of your well-being.
It determines how you’re able to handle and operate emotionally, socially, psychologically and physically.
Considering how much of a role your mental health plays in each aspect of your life, it's important to guard and improve your psychological wellness every single day.
Hello Namaskar, I am Jyoti parchani, a lawyer by qualification and a homemaker by choice and passion. Today, a proud mother of two young girls is here to share her experience as a parent.
I think today I can’t be a mother like my mom was to me. Undoubtedly she at her time was the best mom anyone could wish for but time has immensely changed now in this technical and competitive world.
A mother has to be a friend, a guide, a companion, a counsellor and much more for her children. The biggest challenge for parents today is to deal with the mental health of their children, as the world is so competitive and fast and everybody is just running to achieve success and if some can’t run faster and efficiently -
depression, anxiety, and self-doubts are the few consequences of it.
Unlike our times we use to be patient and strong enough to wait for the arrival of the best time. However, today’s youth lack patience & mental strength and we just have to understand that this is the need of time as a parent we need to boost their self-esteem and encourage them to have faith in themselves.
Youth today may not be good at listening but they imitate what their parents do, so try to be a good role model for them and encourage them to spread love and light wherever they go.
Teach them not to be affected by small failures and setbacks.
Be generous in our ideas when it comes to their freedom.
I think as a mother I have been liberal to my girls to choose their streams, Careers, professions, friends and most importantly life but yes I am always there to guide them, point out their mistakes and help them rectify the same.
Make transparent communication a priority and give your children a safe place to open up and share their feelings, thoughts and opinions.
In your most challenging parenting moments, take a deep breath and try to remember that the moment your child is at their most challenging is when your child is struggling with the most challenges.
