Blocked Care

Let's have a real talk about something we don't always put on the highlight reel – blocked care. You know those moments when you're giving it your all as a foster or adoptive parent, and suddenly, it's like you've hit a care roadblock? Yeah, it's a thing, and it's totally okay to admit it.

Blocked Care – The Real Struggle

Imagine this: You're in the parenting groove, doing your superhero thing, and then BAM! It feels like you've run into a wall made of frustration, exhaustion, or just plain 'ol overwhelm. That's what I'm talking about – blocked care, my friends. Unsure if you have blocked care? Take an assessment here

Take a Breather – No Judgment Zone

Guess what? It's absolutely cool to hit pause. Repeat after me: taking a break doesn't make me a bad parent. We're not robots; we're human beings dealing with real-life stuff. So, when you hit that wall, take a step back, catch your breath, and do something just for you.

Reach Out – You're Not Alone

Here's a secret society you might not know about – the "I've Hit a Wall Too" club. Seriously, you're not alone in this. Reach out to your fellow parents, spill the tea, and let them be your backup dancers in this crazy parenting show. Sometimes, just talking it out can make all the difference. You can register for our next support group which is on December 21st at 6 pm here at our new location or you are welcome to join us online. We will be talking about blocked care

Treat Yo' Self – No Excuses

Self-care isn't a luxury; it's a survival skill. Whether it's devouring a tub of ice cream, binge-watching your guilty pleasure, or taking a power nap – do it guilt-free. Your sanity will thank you.

You're Not Perfect – Embrace It

Let's ditch the superhero cape for a sec. Perfect parents are a myth. Embrace the chaos, the messy moments, and the days when you're more "hot mess" than "supermom/dad." Life is messy, parenting is messier, and that's okay.

Build Your Village – They've Got Your Back

Remember the saying about a village raising a child? Well, that village is also there to pick you up when you stumble. Don't be afraid to let your people in – friends, family, fellow caregivers. They've got your back in this wild parenting adventure.

So, there you have it – blocked care is real, and you're not alone. Take that breather, reach out to your squad, and keep rocking this parenting thing, imperfections and all. 🚀💙
