Being a parent is one of the toughest jobs in the world. There is so much anxiety around being a good parent that sometimes can lead us to make bad decisions and build relationships with our children that can be distant and feel like your children don’t love you. Then there is the judgement from all those around us such as family, friends and school communities that just add to the pressure of being a good parent. It’s a challenge that most parents are faced with on a daily basis.
We all want what is best for our children and with all the internal challenges coupled with external criticism, causes most parents to question their parenting methods. As a parent, we know about the social and academic challenges that our children are faced with. These challenges can shape what type of person our children will become and with that comes behavioural issues that can cause anxiety and isolation in technology.
There is a huge amount of pressure on parents to educate their children to be respectful, honest and be well mannered that it can be overwhelming. When all we want is for our children to learn and grow in a safe environment. Our fears and anxieties can have a negative impact on our children’s growth in being confident and competent in relationships and attaining the level of success we want our children to experience when they become adults.
Lots to take in right? After reading that why would you ever want to be a parent?
However, those that are parents, parents that love their children, parents that are invested in their children’s future, know that they would never give up the wonderful, sometimes stressful, life as a parent.
