LIMITS

This is one I am actually good at, for the most part - yay me!

If you don't set limits for your child, who will? Limit the amount of time in front of the television, limit the noise, limit the sugar and the soda and anything that limits the possibility of peace and quiet. Don't go hog wild; just set limits. Before you add one more art class or one more soccer season, think about whether a too-full schedule limits your child's opportunity to dream, to wonder, to do nothing at all. Set limits for yourself, too. Cut back on he number of times you say, "Oh, I'd be happy to," and feel the freedom that comes from saying, "No, I don't think that's going to work for me." When you start to ask whether you're paying too much attention to your own well-being, remember that the sky's the limit when it comes to self-care.
