15. Be Forgiving And Flexible
This is an extremely stressful time. Everyone is trying to adjust to this new, unexpected situation. Lots of change and insecurity put us all under serious stress. Please be flexible and forgiving with yourself and with the kids, too. We all have bad days when nothing goes as planned – especially when the kids are around. It’s absolutely fine not to have a perfectly clean house with very well-behaved kids in it. Do not compare your life to the fake reality that you see on social media. Do not feel bad because your family is not like what people say it is supposed to be.
Hang in there, you are doing a great job!
