How you cope with daily parenting stresses?

Parenting alone can get very frustrating and overwhelming at times. I find that humour/laughter can help me ease daily stresses. Is there anything you do daily to help you manage your stress with parenting your toddlers, children, etc. I've got toddlers. My oldest is 3.5 yrs old with Autism and my youngest is 19 months.

  • truthfully, I used to turn up the music and dance around like an idiot. It would relieve the stress and make the kids laugh. My oldest was severely speech delayed and his little sister was only 20 months younger.

    Now they are 11 & nearly 13. I get my revenge by making them watch music videos from the 1980's. And we dance around like idiots.
