Dr. Nicole Danforth: You are the number one advocate for your child. And taking care of yourself is incredibly important. So, you need to also thrive. You might need to go on a date, for instance, with your partner. You might need to take a personal day. You might need to go for a walk, go on a walk with a friend. But taking care of yourself as a parent is incredibly important as well. And for many parents, I think that's a difficult piece. And so to really encourage them to take good care of themselves is, I think, important.
