BUILD A SUP­PORT SYS­TEM Friends and fam­ily are im­por­tant to have around dur­ing mother­hood. Take the time to lis­ten to their ad­vice. It’s very easy to take a wrong call when you’re on your own. BE­ING AS­SERTIVE PAYS As tempt­ing as it is to give in to all your child’s de­mands, al­ways be pre­pared to say NO. TAKE A TRIP Whether it’s a short day trip or a long va­ca­tion, take a trip at least once a year. It’s a great time to bond as a fam­ily. SAY NO TO HOME ALONE Never let your chil­dren come home to an empty house even if it means can­celling ap­point­ments or hav­ing a late lunch. FOR BET­TER OR FOR WORSE Make sure you and your hus­band share equal re­spon­si­bil­i­ties in bring­ing up the kids.
