It’s been a tricky week in the School Runs household. So tricky that I finally admitted defeat and asked for help. Only, asking for help isn’t really admitting defeat, is it? It’s actually a show of strength to say, “hey, I’m not coping and I could do with a little help here!”
Parents, especially those with children with additional needs, often think that if they aren’t seen to be managing it all, then something awful will happen. What we should really be doing is building our team, our tribe around us, so that, in those times when things are getting a bit tricky, there’s always someone on hand to help.
Some of us need reminding that it’s ok to ask for help if we’re struggling and that it doesn’t make us weak, even though we might feel vulnerable.
Do you have your tribe? Do you know how to ask for help when you need to?
