Golden Rule: Build self-love and show love for your children through action.

Building self-love is important.

It is common for parents to not have a lot of free time, so it is necessary to come up with a plan. Good self-care is a part of self-love and includes: sound nutrition, exercise, proper sleep and healthy social activities.

Forgive yourself and take another new step towards your own growth. When we grow our own self-love, we automatically show our children how to do this. They will learn by example and easily grow their own self-love.

Try this: Take time today to write a list of activities and day-to-day tasks that you currently engage in. Aim to make at least one of them an activity in which you can grow or practice self-love. Consider replacing an activity altogether if it does not benefit you positively anymore.
