Joys of Parenting

The joys of parenting can have so many meanings.  It can happen early on as we are raising babies and continue through teenage years and beyond.  It is not all joyous and fun throughout the years.  There are ups and downs, tears and sadness, stress and anxiety.  How de we get through it all?

Take a listen to my video to hear more about the joys of parenting and how we get through all the stages and stressors:

There are many reasons to enjoy parenting and so many difficulties along the way too. We learn as we go, ask for support and educate ourselves as best we can to make the right decisions and do the best we can to survive through the hard times.  Our job, as parents, is not easy. It certainly has its struggles at all stages of life with our children.

Here is a list of the biggest struggles & stressors as teenagers:

  • Teaching them independence
  • Demands of teenagers
  • Being a taxi driver
  • Keeping them safe
  • Instilling positive values
  • Getting their license
  • Keeping their schedules organized
  • Preparing them for college

List of stress relievers for parents:

  • Exercise
  • Meditate
  • Shop
  • Pedicure/Manicure
  • Massage
  • Read
  • Therapy
  • Wine
  • Talking with other parents

We want what is best for our children and have them grow into respectful, educated and independent adults.  It is a very difficult job as parents to guide them on the right path. It is also stressful for our children experiencing so many changes in their teenage years.  This is a time with lots of emotions, experiences, failures and success.  We need to continue to protect and support our children as best we can as they grow into successful, independent adults.
