    It's a hard task and

    as parents, we have to be almost perfect because we are parents. Anything that our kids do, we will be held responsible for it. The hardest part is seeing your child go in a direction you went in or just being a teenager. You have to mold, teach, and pray for them.

    I've been a stay at home mom

    for the past 5 almost 6 years. I've re-entered the workforce recently and am pretty excited about it. I'm starting slow to adjust both myself and the boys. And it's a step in the right direction!

    If you believe this this you are STUPID!

    Try working in a coal mind or roofing a house in the summer when its 101 outside. I will take a job being a parent over that daily! I either wake up at 11 and watch videos all day, or drop her off at school and come home and lay around all day. being a parent is EASY
