afford life

Freedom to afford life as a parent. #parenting

One of the biggest pressures of parenting life is to try and afford everything for our kids. Truth is however, we do not need to be able to give them anything and everything they want. Yes, you need to provide your kids with life essentials but anything more than that is luxury and can often be improvised without affecting your quality of life negatively.

When you adopt this line of thinking as a parent is will immediately reduce family stress and improve your relationships knowing the rules regarding luxury needs.

It will set boundaries and incite your kids’ negotiation skills, teaching them how to convey their wants and learn how to compromise. Saying no to some things your kids want is not a bad thing! It will stimulate their creativity to try different means of receiving stuff. Like working for extra money, or selling some of their old toys. When they show interest, be sure to give them a bit of guidance in finding creative ways to meet their needs.

Stop punishing yourself for not giving your kids EVERYTHING and rather start enjoying giving them LIFE. Empowering them with essential life skills, only learned when start to think for themselves.
