I Believe Parenting Is The Hardest Job Anyone Could Ever Have

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 119 People

    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!

    Parenting Is So Hard...

    One of the hardest thing about being a parent is to help your child deal with life disappointments. You don't to play it off as it was nothing because it could be a very big deal to them. You don't want to make a big hoopla about it either because you'll be coddling them. You don...

    No, I don't agree with this AT ALL. This is ridiculous. A smart woman won't have kids. (I'm not saying that women who have kids are stupid. So don't draw that conclusion.)

    I think a woman's main purpose is to be a good mother to her children if she chooses to have them. Not to simply be a breeder. That's ridiculous.
