Survival Tips for Working Parents
Being a working parent is a challenging role. It involves a balancing act between meeting your child's needs for care and attention, sharing a satisfying relationship with your partner and friends and being a reliable and competent employee while trying to enjoy life and parenthood. Make Life Easier by:
Setting realistic and achievable goals for you and your family
Asking for help
Changing your expectations and priorities around the house
Involving other supportive adults in the planning and sharing of parenting and household responsibilities
Be realistic about what can be achieved each day. Routine is important. Having an unpredictable lifestyle is time consuming and unsettling for everyone. Young children become frustrated, overwhelmed, and rushed when routines are frequently changing (understandably, sometimes it cannot be helped).
Talk to your partner about household responsibilities and expectations as a parent and an adult household member.
Starting and finishing the day on a happy note:
Give yourself extra time in the morning
Re-think what is essential to be completed before leaving the house each morning
Pack your work and childcare bags the night before
Use time in the car as a valuable opportunity to connect with your child both on the way to childcare and on the way home. Sing songs, and listen to your child when they speak to you
Most importantly, leave work stresses, at work
Organise the next days clothing the night before, for you and your child
Avoid conflicts and fights in the morning - it is always a no-win situation for everyone
Make sure your child goes to bed early enough as this ensures they have adequate sleep for development and growth and gives you and your partner time to interact as adults and friends
Feeding the family does not need to be stressful!
Prepare double amounts of food and freeze for later
Invest in a slow cooker and put dinner on before you leave for work
Also remember your evening meal does not always have to be a hot meal
Depending on the age of your child, try and enjoy dinner around the table with the television off and all family members present. This is a good habit to get into and provides a great opportunity to meaningfully interact with your family
Consider a no TV rule in the morning as this can distract everyone from getting ready
Add an extra hour to childcare for shopping later in the day
Avoid taking tired and hungry children shopping
Consider shopping on-line or in the evening ask your partner to do the shopping
Another suggestion is to do a big weekly shop to avoid the need to shop every day
Wash and hang the clothes the night before
Fold washing properly and save ironing
Children do get sick when you least expect it:
Ensure your employer knows you are also a parent, so if your child does become sick you can take leave
Otherwise, have an alternative plan -either arrange for your partner to care for your child or have a back up such as a grandparent or good friend on standby. from http://www.tresillian.net/
