Parenting My Child
Here are some good things to remember when you choose to parent.
- Forgive Yourself: Let me let you in on a secret. You will not be the perfect parent. No one is. But, you are the perfect parent for your child. Know that you will make mistakes, learn from them, and move on. But also know that no one knows what your child needs better than you.
- Remember Your Tribe: Ever heard that saying, it takes a village to raise a child? It’s completely true. Depend on your tribe to encourage you in your parenting journey and help you when you need it. If you don’t have that kind of support, we can be that for you!
- Reach Out For Support: There are tons of classes, workshops and more on parenting. We offer classes here at the center, but there are all kinds of resources in the community that are available to you as well. Give us a call and we can tell you what we have to offer. We’d love to see you and be part of your parenting journey.
- Don’t Forget Your Goals: Just because life has thrown you a curve ball doesn’t mean you can’t pursue your dreams. Find a way to work towards your goals. You’ve got a little one who will depend on you. Be someone they can be proud of.
Choosing to parent a child is a serious choice. Cute little babies grow up, and have different needs in every stage of their development. As with any choice you make, you live with the choice. Be reflective and make sure the choice you make is your choice.
