Kita tidak pernah tahu, anak kita akan terlempar ke bagian bumi yang mana nanti, maka izinkanlah dia belajar menyelesaikan masalahnya sendiri .
2.Jangan memainkan semua peran,
ya jadi ibu,
ya jadi koki,
ya jadi tukang cuci.

ya jadi ayah,
ya jadi supir,
ya jadi tukang ledeng,

Anda bukan anggota tim SAR!
Anak anda tidak dalam keadaan bahaya.
3.Tidak ada sinyal S.O.S!
Jangan selalu memaksa untuk membantu dan memperbaiki semuanya.

Anak mengeluh karena mainan puzzlenya tidak bisa nyambung menjadi satu, "Sini...Ayah bantu!".

Tutup botol minum sedikit susah dibuka, "Sini...Mama saja".

In the spirit of normalizing burnout and encouraging breaks in #academia and #parenting, I’m happy to share that my husband and I have taken 4 days off to escape all of our responsibilities. We’re doing a hotel staycation and it has been bliss. But reactions have been…mixed. 🧵
For the most part people have been cool, but there have also been a lot of passive-aggressive, guilt-inducing comments like, “How do you have the time for that”, “My kids would lose their shit if I left for that long”, “I wish I could do that but I have way too much work”.
These kinds of thoughts and comments are what has sustained a culture of performative overwork in both of these domains for way too long. Breaks and rest boost productivity over the long term, and you can’t do quality scholarship or parenting if you’re exhausted and checked out.

Being a parent has made me a better startup founder (and vice versa).

@sacca shared similar learning with @HarryStebbings on how he approaches his children and team members.

The similarity between parenting and managing is astounding.

When someone in your life is upset - your kid, your partner, or your team member - Here's the golden rule:

You repeat back to them what you just heard them say.

Then wait. Let it sink in.

Don't try to solve their problems (*important*). Don't minimize the situation either.
People - kids and adults alike - all crave to be heard, to be understood.

Interestingly this is *exactly* what FBI's go-to negotiation technique looks like (h/t @VossNegotiation)

This is hard to write but it is true for many. What I’m about to say is a harsh reality of what people go through.

What I am about to say is also the reason why a lot of people don’t ask for help.

People do not ask for help because of the fears and stigmas that exist.

Here Is Something to think about,

What if you were a #singleparent with a #child

You work full time for $15.00/hr

You take home roughly $960.00 per paycheck (bi-weekly after taxes)

#singleparent #parenting #Blessed #grateful #calgary #calgarylife #alberta #yyc

Your bills per month:

$1,000 or more for rent
$150 or more for cable/internet
$250 or more for utilities
$150 per month for car insurance

So let’s do the math

You bring home about
$1,920.00 a month

Your bills average about $1,500(give or take)

Has your child just started, or just gone back to, school and you're desperate to hear about their day, but your questions are met with mumbles, grunts or silence?

Knowing when - and how - to ask new school starters about their day is a bit of an art form. Here are some of my best tips:

There has been a lot of talk of preparing new school starters over the last few weeks and lots of discussions about how to help them with big feelings as they settle in, but one huge missing part of the conversation is talking about how the *parents* feel. Image
Your child starting school is a huge deal for you too, but there’s far less advice to help you with your feelings. Image

An example of why #pandemic #parenting #care during #Covid is particularly challenging. 3 days ago, my toddler started acting funny and slept terribly (up crying at least once/hour). The next morning, his nose was streaming, his voice was hoarse, and he coughed intermittently. 1/
In pre-covid times, this would be unremarkable. In covid times, this meant that on Sunday AM, even though he wasn't particularly ill, we realized we wouldn't be able to bring him to care during the week without a negative test. We cancelled social plans made weeks earlier. 2/
We also cancelled dinner with my ailing father, who was very disappointed and also confused. I promise to drive a plate of dinner up to his house instead. I feel badly that he spends so much time alone these days, but I also can't bring covid to a senior living community. 2.5/

Can we talk about all the “kids don’t need masks” hot takes from “experts” that keep cropping up?

I’m exhausted and frustrated and just need to lay some thoughts out there

A 🧵

#pandemic #parenting #tweetiatrician #medtwitter #covid #vaccines #masks
I’ve been bombarded with DMs, comments, articles arguing for a back to normal for kids that ditches all masks for kids + insists covid isn’t bad for them.

The main tactic is the same old using stats + missing the big picture to ultimately argue covid isn’t dangerous for kids
The reality of covid risk to kids is much messier. It involves understanding the complexities of mortality rates, how all children deserve to live a life free of vaccine-preventable disease, how the known + unknown long term effects scare pediatricians more than acute disease

#mindfulmonday THREAD & we're all about gratitude! It starts with us as parents, carers, caregivers, grown ups. Show up for your little one's by helping them appreciate the small things in life. The things that make the 🌎 beautiful, sparkle, shine.
We know it's been a tough year. We've been #homeschooling, #parentinginapandemic and working. It's been rough, full stop. But remember the clapping, the rainbows, the neighbourly kindnesses. That's the human in us all shining through.
This week, try to focus on #gratitude. 🙏

Here's some ideas! 👇👇 What works for you?

🏺Make a gratitude jar together
👀 Spend some time appreciating your surroundings together
💬 Talk about what makes your little ones happy. Tell them.

I am trained in #developmental #psychology and #neuroscince. I have been screaming the #teenagebrain is #underreconstruction from the rooftops! Am totally ashamed of my peers who wilfully ignore this. #neuroplasticity #frontallobes #psychologists #gender #rogd #trans #detrans
The teenage brain is under reconstruction. The prefrontal cortex is not fully developed until minimum aged 25. A bit longer for males. The prefrontal cortex is largely responsible for: decision making, planning, organisation, focusing, impulsivity, aka executive functions
Managing emotions, predicting consequences of one’s choices and moderating social behaviour. This is #science #facts Anyone who says otherwise is brainwashed by #ideology Shame on any professional who ignores this #gender #trans #detrans #shame

Has your child ever been anxious about going to the doctor, scared about a medical procedure, or seem traumatized afterward? This is the case for millions of children, and parents too. I’m so excited about upcoming release of my new book just for parents like you!
My new book, “Afraid of the Doctor: Every Parent’s Guide to Preventing and Managing Medical Trauma,” was co-authored with pediatric psychologist and medical trauma expert @MeghanMarsac

Visit & follow @AfraidoftheDr to pre-order and learn more

When parents (and health care providers!) understand medical trauma and learn strategies to reduce and even prevent it, they become empowered to better care for their child’s emotional and physical health. We believe this book is so timely considering the #COVID19 pandemic...

The #COVID19 pandemic is a challenging time, for children, parents and caregivers.
Doing a few simple activities with your child can provide them with vital comfort and love during these uncertain times.
Exercise helps kids with a lot of energy (and adults) to de-stress when we #StayHome

Let your child choose the music and have a 10-minute dance! You might even impress them with your moves! 🕺🏼👯💃🏼

Catch bad behaviour early and redirect your kids' attention from a bad to a good behaviour.

Clear, positive instructions get us the behaviour that we want. Swap ‘don’t make a mess’ for ‘please put away your pens’

Stonewall are relaunching “School & College Champions Awards”.

Schools must must refer to latest @educationgovuk guidance & their #safeguarding knowledge & not sign up.

@jo_bartosch for @LesbianGayNews

“The awards cut across every aspect of the operation of the school...advising teachers to “introduce yourself at the start of the year using your pronouns and encourage students to do the same.”

This is compelled speech. #Teachers contact your unions.

‘in her evidence to @Commonswomequ
earlier this week Stonewall CEO @Nancy_M_K claimed: “one of the things that’s really important to say is that we don’t advocate for the removal of the single sex exemptions.” ‘

This is untrue.

1/ Tinkling of Ice: #Alcohol & Me
Personal Share: As a 1st year #MedStudent 35 years ago (#MardiGras 1986), I was a cyclic, binge-drinker. It threatened my future as a physician & my personal safety. I draw on these experiences with pts.

2/ For me, #recovery meant detaching from harmful zones of behavior. Years of ups & downs. I often share my story w patients when it comes up. I find this builds a powerful connection between us and helps us both. #healing

Βλέποντας στην τηλεόραση την δραματική ιστορία της Βανέσας που έχει αποκοπεί τελείως από την επικοινωνία με το παιδί της, συνειδητοποιώ πόσο επίκαιρο έχει γίνει και πάλι το ζήτημα της ΛΟΑΤΚΙ γονεϊκότητας.#transrights #childrenrights #LGBTQ #parenting #thread
Την υπόθεση είχα χειριστεί στο επίπεδο της προσωρινής διαταγής και τότε ο Πρόεδρος Πρωτοδικών είχε δεχτεί ότι η Βανέσα έπρεπε να βλέπει το παιδί, αλλά μετά η εξέλιξη ήταν αρνητική στα ασφαλιστικά μέτρα.
Η Βανέσα δεν είναι η μόνη περίπτωση που διεμφυλικό άτομο έχει παιδί που γεννήθηκε εντός γάμου. Γνωρίζω και αρκετές άλλες περιπτώσεις, όχι μία και δύο.

@bbcbitesize deleting your tweet & then retweeting with replies disabled is not a solution to you promoting political ideology to children. This is against new @educationgovuk guidelines. We will be writing to @GavinWilliamson & @BBC to complain. @Baroness_Nichol @Tanni_GT #LGBT
The image chosen to illustrate the article on twitter & Facebook appears to show a mixed sex changing room. Mixed sex changing undermines #safeguarding.Here is the full article from @bbcbitesize. There are a number of concerns with the article itself.
