Modern society is affecting parenting. There are no difficult children. The problem is that children are growing up in a world where people are tired, busy, lacking patience and pressed for time.
As a mother and a stepmother with a full-time job and chronic illness, I related to this. I am constantly wishing I had more time to dedicate to child raising. I often feel overwhelmed due to being exhausted and juggling too many different responsibilities. I am pretty confident that most parents feel the same way.
Realising that you are in this rush pattern helps us take a step back, take a breath and attempt to slow down. Unfortunately, slowing down one’s lifestyle is often a luxury most of us can’t afford.
Anyone has solutions?
