Parenting is hard and if someone says that it’s not, they’re not being absolutely truthful. Have you ever thought why is parenting so damn hard? If you are a parent you know it well and it’s not possible to make anybody else make understand the same. Every day’s mundane tasks, the diapers, the late night wakening and the parent wandering around sleepless the entire day! Parenthood sometimes is emotionally and physically draining, it demands professional sacrifices and financial aids too. A child is demanding since the time of its birth…until…well forever!
Please don’t take me wrong for me saying hard things about parenting. I love kids dearly and now they’re an inseparable part of my life at my school. But let’s not deny the heavy effort that a parent puts in to raise their kids. Today’s parents are so much aware of the importance of enabling emotional and interpersonal well-being to their children – and there are no parameters to administer to complete the chore! Sometimes a parent thinks oh-I-can-do-it-all, later on, the feeling turns into oh my god-I-tried-everything-but-in-vain and rest every other parent is doing much better than me. But as they say, this is how life is!
I have written a poem for all you lovely parents reading my piece of the article. I’d love to share, here it goes:
We get a baby, we call it a boon.
Realize one later, raising becomes a challenge soon.
We make all to look fine, even though thy not.
Us want to rest all night, while the baby sleeps in a cot.
We want the baby to learn things fast.
Maybe the prospect we set are so vast.
We want the baby to be not so demanding.
Had it been the same when we were not straight standing?
Henceforth while planning, as we get mindful for parenting.
It becomes a joy, rather than overwhelming.
Enjoy your parenting as a Bliss.
Since rest is a subservient fuss.
Let the life flow like the fabric of satin ribbon.
Relax, you all! Grab a glass of hot chocolate and munch on a Bourbon.
Nothing in life comes an easy way which holds sheer importance and a child is important of all. I would like to say to all the new parents that Yes, parenting is not going to be an easy job but you’re going to love every bit of it. But as a parent, you’ll love shaping the mind, body, and soul of your child just as a potter does to the clay. As time passes by, you’ll love instilling the values and morale in your child which you hold true in your life. You’ll love to see their every day’s learning and growth in this beautiful journey of parenthood.
You’ll love to see how the tiniest finger ever that you had held in your hands grows into a helping hand for all your daily chores gradually. And, the feeling when someone comes over and praises you for the beautiful-hearted young individual that you have developed you walk your head held high.
Be that Parent for your child with the softest parenting style acquired.
I hope to have touched the chord of your heart with my drafting.
