While parenting can be quite rewarding, it can also be one of the most difficult jobs on earth. Unlike other jobs, you can’t resign from your post if you don’t like your boss, your office mates, or your work environment. Once you become a parent, you’re stuck being one for the rest of your life. You’re also on call 7 days a week, 24 hours a day, without getting paid. You’re an all-around worker, too, because you assume the role of a cook, a driver, a house cleaner, a laundry person, a messenger, a babysitter, a counselor, a teacher, a nurse. Last but not least, you have to sacrifice your own personal happiness for the sake of your family. Suffice it to say that being a parent can be overwhelming, and we can’t do it alone.
Being first-time parents, my husband and I are only just learning the basics of handling a toddler. But our three-year-old son is now becoming quite a handful, and we find it hard sometimes to make him listen to us, which is quite frustrating. We need all the help we can get. We’re lucky we came across a website that offers helpful family advice. Family and Parenting gives valuable tips on parenting, budgeting, housekeeping, kids’ health and education, and childcare. Now, we can sleep soundly knowing that we have a partner in raising our kids and caring for our family.
