Parenting Tip: Have an Older Mentor to Reassure You Along the Way

Parenting is one of the frustrating things that a person will do in their life. The job of being a parent entails a lot of hard work and effort and sometimes minimal results. There will be many days along the way where you think to yourself, “I think I’d better just give up”. Obviously this isn’t an option as a parent, but it doesn’t stop us from feeling that way sometimes.

In a recent post on Mom Life Today titled, “Help! I Feel Like I’m Ruining My Kids!” the author Susan talks about the frustrations of parenting. Susan also suggests having an older mentor that can reassure you when you are having doubts. This can be a friend, neighbor, or maybe your mother or father. Everybody likes to be reassured from time to time and that does not exclude parents.
