I am a stay-at-home parent of a 2-year-old toddler and I am struggling to handle the emotional ups and downs that come with this role. I love spending time with my child, but sometimes I feel overwhelmed, frustrated and lonely. I often find myself comparing my life to that of my friends who have successful careers, and it makes me feel like I am not contributing enough to my family or society. Furthermore, the lack of adult interaction during the day can be isolating and depressing at times.
Do you have any tips or advice on how to deal with these emotional ups and downs? How do you cope with the feelings of loneliness and insecurity that often come with being a stay-at-home parent? I would love to hear from other parents who have been through similar experiences and can share their strategies for staying positive and motivated. Thank you in advance for your help!
