A lot of parents don’t find themselves as leaders, they see themselves as someone who takes care of children, but doesn’t necessarily lead. With the pandemic, we are realizing more and more that a lot of responsibility for the upbringing of our children has always fallen on our shoulders. Teachers and coaches have always been a part of their upbringing until now and the parents have always held the foundation of that upbringing together, whether they realized it then or not.
- Parents don’t always see themselves as leaders. Sometimes we need to ask the people around us what they need from us so we can actually be on the same page.
- We have to be clear on our values as parents. If we act on impulse or out of bad habits, we can impose negative consequences on our kids.
- We have to make sure that while being part of the rat race, that we don’t let our families down trying to juggle too much.
“As a health pandemic encircles the globe, literally billions of parents find themselves in lockdown with their children. Sure, the economic damage to jobs and family incomes is real.”
