Don’t fall into the ‘parenting trap’ - The illusion of self sacrifice

Is your life really busy that you feel like to you hardly have time to breathe?

Do you have many demands on your time: from work, at home, with friends, your family and of course the kids?

So many parents fall into the life trap of day-to-day living and simply going through the motions life. This gets amplified when you have children with so many extra curricula activities, a mortgage and bills to pay so life goes on with one week merging into the next with very little change and no light at the end of the busyness tunnel.

As a parent, if you’re feeling trapped and resentful because you’re putting your life on hold, if you’re sacrificing your needs for the needs of your partner and children for the sake of your family and if you don’t know what the purpose of your life is anymore beyond the day to day living …

Then join me, Dr Rosina McAlpine as I interview Nicolas Perrin from Lion Heart Coaching who shared his insights into the importance of creating and focusing on a powerful vision for your life, for your family and getting out of the parenting trap. That way, you’ll have more meaning in your life right now and you won’t be stuck not knowing what to do when your children move out of home and aren’t at the centre of your life.
