The Joys of Parenting

Parenting is a word with many meanings.

The act of parenting is verbal, non-verbal, active, and sometimes inactive.

The word takes on many roles, task, and tests.

The joys are laughable, tearful, stressful, and rewarding.

Parenting is a life-long journey between both parties, the adult, and the child.

It is not to be taken lightly. And like my mother once told me, you only get one change to do a great job

at being a parent. Your life, your goals, your finances are altered by a bundle of joyfulness.

Knowing your strengths and your weaknesses can help you with parenting.

While capitalizing on your strengths, find other support systems to assist you with your weaknesses.

Parenting is a special gift mandated by a higher power who holds you responsible for doing the best you

can. Parenting is not easy but think about nothing in life is these days. We must work at anything we

to produce intrinsic and extrinsic lasting rewards.

It is a great feeling to say, I would do it all over again despite the ups and downs of parenting.

To sum it all up, what is a parent?

A for Attentive
