The couple just found out they were expecting their first child. The highs and lows overwhelmed them from the beginning. Doubts crossed through their minds if they would make great parents. The happy event occurred and the day came when the tiny baby was brought home, reality set in they were parents.
Being a parent is not a job that can be left behind when the parents leave the home. It’s a tiring, happy demanding, joyous, overwhelming, loving job that is 24-7, 365 days a year. Parenting requires patience (a lot), children are unpredictable. Remember that quality time is the best thing that a parent can do and give to a child. Parenting requires money to raise children. Don’t forget that sleep will be lost after having kids and never will be regained. This is called being a parent.
The first and most important for being a parent is to love their children. Without love children would feel deprived and wonder why they weren’t good enough. Love is also needed to help their child thrive and grow. Love brings the parent-child relationship closer, letting the child open up to their parents when there is a problem. Love is an all-around goodness to have.
The second is patience, a virtue that is hard to practice by many, with kids it can be difficult at times. They are unpredictable. They can be really good and behave themselves, while other times getting into everything, making a mess, stringing toys around the house, running like a wild Indian, ad nagging every other minute that they need this or that. Patience is definitely a virtue of importance that doesn’t come easy.
Next is quality time spent bonding with children. There is never too much time...
