Rise Early in the Morning
If you get up early morning you will have some time for yourself which would turn out extremely relaxing and rejuvenating for you.
Take some time off from kids and your daily work schedule and do something that you actually love to do. Sometimes just be yourself and forget about other responsibilities to recharge yourself physically and emotionally. Let your spouse handle your kids during this time.
Take Proper Rest
Rest is very important especially when you have small kids around. Going to bed early at night can solve this problem for you and your children will also get into the habit of going to bed early and rising earlier in the morning.
Take a deep breath when you feel stressed or over pressured by your kids’ chaos and commotion. Always avoid punishing your child when you are angry. When you feel extremely angry, just step outside and have some deep breaths.
Do yoga, walk, run or jog. This will make parenting easier and help you calm down as well.
Take Care of Yourself
There are many moms who do not take proper care of themselves. Make sure you eat well and have enough rest that you need.
Enjoy the Moments with Kids
Just be grateful and enjoy the present time with your kids. Seriously, you are going to miss everything when they grow up.
Focus On the Present Time
When you are with your children do not pretend to be present, but enjoy every moment you are with them. You will feel much better and happy too.
Avoid Giving Negative Instructions

Try to Be Positive
Surprisingly if you filter your responses through a ‘yes’ instead of saying ‘no’ to your kid and they see the positive wave in your eyes, he or she would feel much happier doing that thing.

Even when there is a tantrum thrown by your kid, wait and let it pass. Above mentioned tips are just some of the many that you can try to stay calm and patient being a parent.
