Balancing work and life can be challenging as an adult, but even harder with children involved. While there are many learning curves ahead of you, there’s no reason to feel guilty or upset when situations don’t work out the way you imagined them to. Instead of focusing on what’s lacking, it might be better to think about what you’ve learnt from these situations.

Working parents often feel guilty for spending time away from their kids. As a parent, you’re probably worrying over your child’s health, happiness, and growth. Trying to manage work simultaneously can lead to times when you feel guilty, or overwhelmed; this is where positive affirmations come in. Parenting affirmations are quick mantras you can recite to combat any negative thoughts and take back control. The beauty of a daily positive affirmation is that it reminds you to be strong and proves to be an encouragement in challenging situations.

Affirmations shouldn’t be ‘toxically’ positive, but rather direct, reassuring, and empowering. Let’s look at some real-time scenarios that every parent faces and how they can tackle situations using positive affirmations.
