Set rules on so­cial me­dia

Young Parents (Singapore) - - Preschool Series -

Sil­via of­ten en­cour­ages the moth­ers she works with to take a mini-sab­bat­i­cal from so­cial me­dia while they con­cen­trate on build­ing up their con­fi­dence as a par­ent.

“Be more mind­ful of when you start get­ting caught up in the ‘I’m not good enough’ sto­ries of the mind. And don’t take your in­ner critic’s judge­ment so se­ri­ously. Moth­ers are by far their very worst critic and that is the most harm­ful one too,” warns Sil­via.

If you must be on so­cial me­dia, tread care­fully and keep healthy bound­aries. Don’t over­share be­cause it makes you vul­ner­a­ble and ex­posed to emo­tional harm.
