2. Prioritize what’s important

Calendar

Organize your agenda and attend and prioritize the most important things first. If you have to finish a job and you know when you have to take your kids to school, take the time to be productive and fulfill your work responsibilities.

There are technological resources that can help you organize your commitments as a woman. Simply prioritize the most urgent and remember what shouldn’t be forgotten.

You can save visits to the bank by making electronic transactions and you can organize your email so you can attend to the most important ones first.

3. Organize household chores

Household tasks should be a responsibility shared by all members of the family. If you delegate tasks to all members, together they can achieve the clean and pleasant atmosphere they need at home.

Each one can take on tasks according to their age, strength and abilities. Between everyone, you can organize a calendar of domestic tasks. The obsession with order and cleanliness is not healthy, nor is disorder and dirt.  However, be careful with being a mom who supports machismo. Have dad do housework, too.

4. Share your time

Apart from chores, there must be time to spend together as a family. At least one meal of the day should be done together, with the TV and cell phones turned off. Family meals promote the physical and emotional health of children and adolescents.

Include time for each child, for your partner and, of course, for yourself.

Remember: you can save for tomorrow what you didn’t do today, but postponing it does not mean forgetting it.

5. Laugh and cry

Working Mother

In family life, there are good and not-so-good emotions. A super mom enjoys the family company and shares the joy of being together.

Smile after a difficult day of work;.However, at the same time, don’t be afraid to share tears with your partner and children during tough times.

Sharing emotions, feeling them, and acting accordingly is part of the learning that a super mom gives her children. More than theorizing about it, children see it every day in the example that mom gives.

6. Recognize dad

A super mom recognizes and values ​​the man who gave life to her children.

Share with your partner, whether it be housework or parenting.

Nowadays, we’ve erroneously created a mother figure that can do everything, which has severed the ability to accept the love and support of the man with whom life is shared.

If the couple is separated, it doesn’t mean that the children should dissociate from the father. Even in cases where the father is absent and  doesn’t fulfill his responsibilities, a super mom avoids inspiring rancor or hatred in their children. Relationship problems between a couple do not have to damage relationships with their children.

You must take care of your children, but also of yourself.

To be a super mom and be in line with the demands of growing children, you have to be physically, mentally, and emotionally fit. A good diet and exercise is essential.

Also, if you want your children to eat healthy and exercise from an early age, the best way to do it is with your example.

If you feel overwhelmed with your family responsibilities or do not know how to handle any of the difficult situations that it entails, don’t hesitate to seek professional help.

And your mental and emotional balance also depends on the welfare of your children.

A final reflection for all super moms

Being a super mom doesn’t mean being “super powerful.” The essential part of a conscious motherhood is to accept and recognize that you need support and help. It’s recognizing when it’s time to delegate. That acceptance and recognition reflects your true strength to raise your children.

This is especially important for mothers who have to raise their children alone. Remember: there is always a helping hand, a grandmother, a brother or sister who can give you the support you need.

Your children need your care and guidance to grow. A super mom loves, supports, encourages, understands and, in due time, lets her children take control of their destiny and live according to their own decisions.
