I have often said that parenting may be the hardest job you will ever be asked to do, but it is also one of the most rewarding. But let’s be real; real honest. It can be exasperating and discouraging. If anyone told us how hard it was going to be we probably would have thought twice abut it.
Children are a wonderful gift and we treasure them. We want them to succeed and to be well equipped for a world that is highly competitive and constantly changing. When we think of the skills that effective young adults need for a successful launch into the work force, they are, indeed, numerous. There is significantly more pressure on our children to acquire and perform. In alignment with this, there are also constant challenges for parents to understand more and equip more.
