Be Prepared For Change

Life will never be the same after having a child and it will be constantly changing and you need to adapt to these changes as time goes on.

You also need to understand that you have a life of your own as well and while it will be devoted to bringing up your child everybody needs some time out to maintain sanity.

By developing a trusted support network of friends and family you should be able to include some time to yourself without neglecting the needs of your child.

In fact it is only by looking after your own health and well-being that you are going to be able to give your child the support that it needs.

It is not selfish to consider yourself as well because you are the provider of your child’s support and without maintaining a balance in your own life you will not be able to do the same your child.

Finding other young mothers to help share and support one another is an excellent way of maintaining your sanity and will help to understand the various different aspects of bringing up a child that come about from experience.

One thing you must not do however is compare the progress of your child to that of others as every child reaches different milestones in their life at different rates and there is no set rule to say what is normal and what isn’t.

Provided your child is having healthy development and progress in their abilities and achievements then you have nothing to worry about.

If you are at all concerned about your child’s development then it pays to consult professionals rather than try to sort these problems out with other young mothers or people who don’t have the necessary knowledge to give you sound advice.

Make the most of any opportunities that others offer to help out and use that time to spend on yourself.
