Parent Burn Out



Parental burnout is a thing. Parents have been burning out since before the pandemic, but we are now talking more about it in the mental health field. In 2020, when Covid hit, parents world stopped but it only stopped in the social aspects. What we all experienced as parents were no more activities or school meant we had to entertain, feed, teach and be at home with our kids 24/7. Parents either enjoyed this or struggled.

The information in this article is from the book Transforming Anger by Doc Childre and Deborah Rozman.



Everyone gets angry! Anger is a normal human emotion. It is important to note that anger is often used as an umbrella term. We all know how anger feels. We become irritable, short-termed, aggressive, hostile, and say hurtful things. Yes, all of this feels like anger, but it’s not why you’re angry. The book, Transforming Anger states that we feel angry when we’re experiencing:



  • Insecurity: uncertainty, feeling danger, threat, or lack of protection

  • Guilt: feeling responsible for offensive acts

  • Hurt: emotional pain due to someone’s words or act...

National Breastfeeding Awareness Month is meant to empower mothers in their feeding experiences and not to criticize or critique their backgrounds or circumstances. Breastfeeding is known to have both positive and negative effects on mothers and children, reminding ourselves that formula feeding isn’t failing and it’s okay if your expectations for breastfeeding don’t align with your experiences.
