The Joys and Woes of Parenting

Parenting is not a breeze. A lot of new parents find it hard to cope up with the thousand and one things parenting entails. How many times have I heard fellow mommies lament on the woes and travails of parenting? A number of times. On the other hand, how many times have I heard of the joys and sheer feeling of fulfillment regarding that payless job called parenting? Countless.

There are books, articles, manuals and even brochure on the subject of Family and Parenting .I have numerous series of books that discuss the different stages of childhood from day one up to secondary school. I have books relating to from conception to actual day of delivery. I have sources on the various diseases and immunizations of children. Name the topic and I probably have the book. Yet, there is no sure formula on how to bring up a child. I adhere to the Biblical verse that says "spare the rod and spoil the child". No, I do not inflict the black and blue thing kind of punishment but I did some kind of spanking when my kids were from ages 7-11 and somehow they all turned out okay.

There are numerous sites that deals in giving out tips and tidbits about parenting to all the wonderful internet savvy moms and dads these days. One such site is www. family-and-parenting .com. Articles are varied as some titles are a series of Tips for Raising kids - from infancy to 17 years old. There is an article for Dad's to be and even tips to help your overweight child lose weight. Check the site out.
