Yes, family time is important, but so is time to yourself.
Working parents often have very little time to recharge between racing home, making dinner and putting the kids to bed, so make sure to carve out even just a small amount of alone time each week — even if it’s just reading a book by yourself in bed for 30 minutes every night.
Schedule time with friends — sans kids, go to the gym, or wander around the mall solo. Do whatever you need to do to keep yourself sane. A happy parent makes happy kids. Don’t forget that.
