I’m not quite sure where this assumption comes from, because as any mother of a toddler will tell you, the woods get thornier as your kids get older.

.

.

Anxiety, in particular, often grows with your child. When you have an infant, you have complete control over that child’s every move. The child can’t walk or talk and can only eat breast milk or formula. Parenting expectations are clear (feed the kid, bathe the kid, let the kid sleep.) When children become mobile and start eating solids and then eventually walking and talking, they are considerably more difficult to control and parenting tasks are no longer as clear-cut.

.

.

Loss of control and unclear expectations can serve as fodder for anxiety. Many moms of toddlers find themselves feeling overwhelmed and without adequate support to help them manage it.

.

.

Here are some tips to overcome this :-

✔️Allow yourself to feel anxious.It’s OK to be worried and stressed. It doesn’t mean you aren’t happy to be a mother or appreciative of what you have.

✔️Make time for yourself.

If you want to effectively take care of your kids, you;have to take care of yourself.Even taking 15 minutes out of your day to do something for yourself can boost your energy and mood and give you stamina for the toddler dramas of the day.

✔️Practice Mindfulness.

Mindfulness exercises can help you learn to focus more effectively on the present moment and recognize that your anxious thoughts are just thoughts, not truths.

So what is your mantra to come out from toddler dramas???
