11. Be Gentle With Yourself
When we're kind to ourselves, we'll be kinder to our children. Dr. Kuzirian offered, "Remember when we talked about cultivating self-compassion?

You are faced with really tough decisions about your family's safety and well-being, you may be under an immense amount of pressure and may be doing all of this with little sleep and little time to emotionally process any of it. When you hear a critical voice, acknowledge it, and then put it in its place, remember to practice using a kind inner voice as it will help you function at your best during a difficult time."
