New Year’s Resolutions for Parents

As another year comes to an end and a new one begins, many people rush to come up with ways they’re going to improve themselves and their lives. New Year’s resolutions are often filled with lofty goals of exercising more, eating healthier, or achieving better work-life balance. For parents of children with special needs, they often push off their own health and well-being to focus on the needs of their child. While understandable, if this sounds familiar, remember that your well-being is important too. You can’t be functioning at your best if you neglect self-care.

 

Ideas for More Realistic Resolutions

Instead of following the crowd and making the same resolutions everyone makes, focus on creating some that are specific to you and your needs. Set goals that are realistic and will help you to achieve better balance such as:

Resolutions can be anything you want them to be. And remember – they’re for the whole year, so don’t feel pressured to get everything done within the first few weeks. They’re also not set in stone, so you can revise your resolutions as necessary. PediaPlex supports families in coordinating therapy and services that best meet their child’s needs. Talk to your child’s therapists and see if they have any recommendations for the upcoming year and how to better help your child. And remember that you are not alone. Raising a child takes a village, and PediaPlex is proud to be a part of this community.
