When we’re kids, our parents are in charge. When we become teenagers, teachers and school staff join in! But once we reach our adult years, you can take charge. This can mean more stress than before, but it can also be great. It means that you stop putting up with certain things. You can put your foot down and say no! Here are five things you must stop accepting as part of your life, and how to deal with them effectively.
Judgemental fellow parents
The pride that parents feel for their children can often translate into competitiveness. Avoid getting into this habit and cycle at all costs. It simply isn’t necessary, and it doesn’t help anybody. It might seem very important to them their daughter is currently tallest in the class, but it really won’t matter at all in 10 years time!
Equally, don’t give judgmental fellow parents in your life. It is not their place to tell you how they think your child is, or is not, developing. Every kid is different, and it’s so important to remember this. They will progress in their education at different rates. See realmomma.com/making-childs-education/ for more tips on helping them make the most of their education. If you can get away from the people, great. But if you have to see them by the school gate each day, just be civil and the move away from them. Same goes for judgemental friends. They are toxic, and you don’t need them in your life.
