February 8, 2008, Newsletter Issue #168: Are you physically or emotionally drained?

Tip of the Week

Are you finding it hard to be motivated / bothered with your kids? The first step to addressing this is to work out whether your lack of energy is physical or emotional. In other words, are you too physically tired at the end of a day to be bothered playing with kids or are you too mentally / emotionally tired to deal with their enthusiasm, tears, problems, noise, etc. Knowing is the first step to resolving. Once you can identify why you donīt wish to spend time with them, you can then look at alternatives to address this. For example, if you are mentally tired, you may set a rule that you will stop playing with them if they argue or become too noisy - quiet play is fine.
