In brief: Are you caring
For your parents? Between your job, taking care of your parents and your children - it is essential that you somehow find a way to care for yourself.
To address stress: talk about feelings ; address problems. Don't avoid them. Aim for 7.5 - 8 hours of sleep/ night. Daily physical activity is optimal in a green space. Eat healthfully. Cut out junk carbs, caffeine ; alcohol (or moderate). Try qi >.

In brief: Stay calm
At all times, no matter what the issues are and be positive always .
Do not let the negative dwindle in your mind and pull you down. Turn all negatives to positives. Trying times will pass , as they always do. So put on a smile and strength you will gain. Happy parenting!
