In this episode Dr. Annette Nunez and Maylene Johnson discuss how parent burnout is real and they give permission to parents to feel the burnout! Parenting is a 24/7 job and if you don't allow yourself a self-care break, burnout is inevitable. Annette and Maylene talk about the importance of accepting burnout and recognizing what the beginning stages of burnout feel and look like within you. Do you become irritable with your kids? Do you want to sleep all day? By recognizing your stages of burnout you can make some changes and take some time for yourself in order to deescalate and avoid being impatient with your kids. Remember parenting is not perfection, you are human and that in it self makes you the best parent.
