What is parenting stress?
Just like everyone else, it’s normal for parents to feel stressed out every now and then. After all, taking care of the family and an entire household is not an easy thing to do. Some parents even manage to work a full-time job in addition to caring for their family.
However, doing all of these things without any time for yourself can lead to what’s known as “parenting stress.” This is a situation wherein parents can have a lot of negative feelings, and they might feel that they can’t cope with the responsibilities that they have as a parent.
These negative feelings can extend to how they care for their children and their family, so it’s important to find out the cause of stress, and to do something about it.
What effects can parenting stress have?
Stress can have very significant effects not just on a person’s health, but also their relationships. And for parents, this can affect the way they care for their children, as well as their partner.
Here are some of the effects that stress can have on parents:
- Sleeping problems
- Overeating or undereating
- Chest pains
- Lack of sex drive
- Upset stomach
