Ever felt drained by the demands of parenting? I know I have. It can be easy to give every last bit of energy to your children and neglect the other important relationships in your life, or even taking care of yourself.
It’s really hard to find the balance between keeping your marriage strong, building external friendships, and having family time. Many parents become so focused on their children’s needs that they fail to recognize that their own marriage, personal time, or friendships are deteriorating.
Whilst it’s true, children thrive when they receive lots of love from their mothers and fathers but parents also need to set aside time to recharge and focus on their other relationships like their marriages and friendships. This is why we regularly have a team of people to help organize parents’ nights off for the ZOE parents. Some of the team cook dinner for the parents, while the rest of them help to oversee activities for the kids to ensure that our hardworking parents regularly get a well-deserved break.
