Protect Your Ability to Make Good Decisions

Your child needs you to make good decisions, so you need to develop and nurture your ability to do that.

One way to nurture your decision-making abilities is to connect with parents who share your life experiences—to draw on their successes and lessons learned as a way to lighten your load and clear your path while caring for your child. Another way is regularly tending to your well-being through exercise, creative outlets, socializing with friends and family—activities that rejuvenate and refresh your mind and spirit.
