Honestly, the best resource parents can give their children, and in turn their family, is their own mental well-being. It can definitely be a challenge to find time to prioritize your own mental wellness in the busy day-to-day world of work and home responsibilities. For parents who work full-time, I recommend finding a therapist who practices close enough to your workplace, for you to have a weekly, or bi-weekly lunch hour sessions. One easy way to integrate mental health into your lives, is through the magic of podcasts. Anyone familiar with my practice knows that I am also a strong proponent for journaling. Sometimes we are our own best resource, we just need the time to devote to our selves.

To add insult to injury, they have to buy their own flimsy costumes and pay for their own, required, beauty regimen.
