Parent? Give Yourself An Easier Ride With These Tips

 No matter what you do in life, there’s few things which can prepare you for the life of a parent. It’s tough, especially if you’re doing it on your own or if you’ve already got a family. However, there are certain things you can do and bear in mind which will give you and the family an easier ride. Sure, things change as life goes on and each parent will be in a different situation, but doing all you can to secure the best life for you and your children is pretty paramount. These tips can give you some ideas and at least start to shift your perspective in a new direction which could ultimately help with it all. 

Make Sure You’re Financially Stable

This isn’t always easy for everyone, but being financially stable can make all the difference to your life and the life of your children. It isn’t easy, but certainly doable. It might be that you’re checking in with Second Income Center for any opportunity to pull in some more cash. You may think that you won’t have the time, but if you audit your time you’ll probably find some spare time to try pulling in some more cash. It might be the other side, where you don’t look to make more, but save more. If you check all of your outgoings chances are you’ll find something you can cut to increase your funds available each month. For an easier ride as a parent, get hold of your finances.


Don’t Ignore Health Issues

Trying to raise children when dealing with healthcare issues is tough, so don’t ignore them when they arise. Especially when it’s something which can get worse over time and won’t get better left on its own. It doesn’t matter if you’re worried about dizziness or dry eye syndrome, whatever the issue you need to get it seen to. Think of your children, if your health gets worse over time then they’re going to have a worse upbringing. They may not even be super serious health issues. It might be that you’re slightly overweight and find it hard keeping up with them. Whatever the issue, get it seen to and sorted so that you can give them your best self and to make your life as a parent infinitely easier.

Go For The Giveaways

You can always find free stuff as a parent. It might be that you’re looking for baby supplies, or maybe you like to find some great coupons online. Brands still use discounted product giveaways but you have to be lucky to find them because they’re not as popular as they were. If you’ve got the time, you can make sure that you can catch the wave. It’s always easier if things are free.

Give And Take With Family

If you keep those close familial ties with family it’s important to offer help as you ask for it. Want a babysitter one night? Sure, ask, but then offer to do the same for them when they need it. Back and forth like this is super common and allows you to take the time you need by giving someone else the time they need. An easier ride for all, and your kids get to make good friends in doing so.

This week it is liquid chalk spray.  They are a bit similar but yet different.  Here is how to make it: Supplies: 1 tsp. washable tempura paint 1 cup of hot water 1/2 cup of cornstarch squirt of dishwashing liquid 1 squirt bottle- I found them at the dollar store 1.  Add cornstarch to one cup of hot water whisking to mix so that there are no clumps. 2.  Add one teaspoon of washable tempura paint and a quirt of dishwashing liquid.  Mix well. 3.  Pour it into your squirt bottles and shake well. 4.  Go have fun!!!   This kept my daughters attention much longer the the fizzy chalk last week.  I also think this was easier to work with and just more fun in general.  I love seeing the chalk wet but then to see it dry.  I think it dried darker so it was fun to see the changes.  :)  Ready, Set, Go!  Have some fun!
