Our school-aged children may be growing up to become more independent, but are still in need of our ongoing attention, input and guidance. This can contribute to a busy time in your life when you find yourself juggling your own career with being physically and emotionally present for your child.
As a mum, you may find yourself adopting the role of protector and nurturer. As a dad, you may find yourself encouraging your kids to push the limits and take risks. Accept your unique roles as these two parenting styles together will help your children remain safe while expanding their experiences, thereby increasing their confidence.
