Work-life balance is off kilter for many parents. The balance just isn't there and knowing that it's out of balance adds more stress! The un-predictable nature of caring for children as well as other responsibilities such as working or running a household, makes 'balancing' responsibilities nearly impossible. Sometimes we don't even realize what is happening and become totally unaware of the impact until it's really bad.
The good news is, it's never too late to turn things around! The toll this level of stress takes on our mind, body and relationships is extremely high. Prevention is key when it comes to the feeling of 'burnout'. There's no clear path as to how long or how intense the stress has to be but rather the feeling of overwhelm that becomes unbearable to manage. Sometimes this is also called, caregiver fatigue. Many people experience this and it's perfectly natural however.......
