Parenting + Motherhood

Parenthood is extremely complex. It is finding the balance of raising your child to be a successful, respectful and responsible adult while not being a dictator and an authoritative parent. We want our children to feel respected but also know where the boundaries are and how to cope with them. In all honesty, being a parent sucks! It’s never fun to have to follow through with consequences. Even though they don’t mean it when they say “I hate You” It still stings just as much. I LOVE being a mom but parenting is rough! Here are some tools and blurbs that I’ve used to help in this parenting journey.
