Picture this: summer days with the family, at home or traveling, or even juggling a mixed schedule of camps and activities. How does the mom look in your imaginary family? How do you look in your visions of the summer?
Is the summer mom smiling and laughing? Is she having fun with her family and letting go of the little things?
Is she having fun and making memories?
Or is the summer mom overwhelmed and a little snappy with her family?
Is she exhausted from trying to balance all the things and still having to manage behavior every second of every day?
Which mom do you see when you envision your summer? Which one do you want to be? Which one do you anticipate becoming this summer?
Summer can be a stressful time for moms as they navigate the challenges of unstructured days, kids’ behavior, sibling conflicts, and more. With the school year coming to an end and kids being home for the summer, moms may find themselves struggling to keep everyone entertained and peaceful.
In addition to behavior challenges, moms may also find it challenging to manage unstructured days during the summer. With fewer activities and routines in place, kids may become bored and restless, which can lead to more behavior issues. This can be especially tough for moms who work from home or have other responsibilities to attend to.
Staring down days of changing schedules and different routines may bring up worries and stresses that are unique to summer.
Exclamations of “Summer break!” may lead to feelings of anxiety instead of feelings of excitement.
You are not alone, worried moms.
Plenty of moms feel apprehensive and quickly worn out with all that summer brings.
