Parenting Made Easy

Take It Easy: 3 Easy Tricks Designed to Keep New Mom Sane and Happy

More than anything else, we want to be as good a parent as we possibly can. Considered how things are nowadays and you will get scared for your children one way or the other. Drugs, sex, lesser family values to name a few makes us realised how much work we need done to make sure our children are 'safe'.

Among all others, I was the one with so much fear. From the time I knew I was pregnant, it seems there were so much to be afraid of. I gotten into motherhood with a lot less knowledge of raising kids than so many others and that was where it all went wrong. When you have to face something you don't know, you'll definitely be nervous, or even worse, be afraid of how to go about it.

Now, while it is normal to fear the unknown, there is a very-easy solution for it, and that is to:

  1. try and know it all. With easy-access to the information online, book stores near your home, not to mention library, there're tons and tons of information shaped to your specific needs waiting for you to feed on. All you have to do is to use your good judgement and apply them to your specific area of life.
  2. Start early. This is vital. As a parent, we need to start early in everything especially disciplining our child. I have a first-hand experience in this, and believe me, you don't want to lost the chance of that first few months! Whatever things, values, rules, good behaviors you want to teach your child, do it as early as possible. You will find the teachings more effective. Remember, teaching is not just what you tell your kids to do, it is also what you do in front of them.
  3. Fit your child into your day. You just have your baby, and it is so exciting. Day and night you're taking care of your little angel. Feeding times, changing times, play times, etcs. If you are not careful, before you know it, your world will be revolving around your child alone and you'll find it hard to ever do anything else. The solution is to fit your child in. Schedule it out what needs to be done each day just the way it use to be before you have your baby, and fit the time of taking care of your baby in according to how it should be. This way, you teach your baby to understand that mommy also have other works to do apart from taking care of him/her. It gives them an opportunity to observe your on going routine, also give them the space they need to learn and explore by themselves.

These tricks sounds simple but they are designed to keep you sane and healthy both physically and emotionally as a new mom. Becomming a mother is one big responsibility, but take a deep breath and be 'in control'. You will be surprise at how quick and well your baby adjust to your lifestyle.

Good luck!

      I had 3 kids--they're all teenagers now: 15, 17, & 19 years old. I gave birth to all of them by C/S and thankfully, they all grew up healthy and well-rounded. I'm not much fond of children but when I became a mother, I took my maternal responsibilities very seriously. I looked after my kids 24/7 since they were born and even until now. Good thing, I'm a work-at-home mom :D
