The Definition of Parenting: What Being a Parent Means

Ever stop and ask yourself, “What is parenting?”. Seriously though what is this thing that we do every day? What defines parenting? It seems a lot like trying to define life in the sense that parenting can mean something different for every individual. It can mean spending quality time with your kids on family trips. It can mean being at every single Little League game. It can mean making a schedule and a routine for your child. It can mean helping your son or daughter study for their big test. It can mean anything that you think it means.

I read a post on Let Life in Practices, about what parenting is. I thought the author did a terrific job of naming all the best things that parenting can be. It is pretty difficult to define parenting in a singular blog post, but she did a good job with it.
