My passion with this blog is not only to chronicle my lil' ladies lives, giving them something to look back on when they are older, but also to do my best to try & help even just 1 parent. Raising up lil' ones is definitely not the easiest job in the world, but it can definitely be the most rewarding & life changing. Kids are eager lil' sponges who long for boundaries & structure, it shows them that we love them & care for them. I think much too often we underestimate what a child is capable of & therefore let them get away with behaviors that are going to grow into something far worse later on. I also think at times it is hard to stay consistent with disciplining our kids & staying nearby to correct them when needed, but it is very necessary & will definitely pay off in the end.
I think parents need to know that they aren't the only 1 out there who feels overwhelmed or discouraged from time to time. Parents need to know that their child is not the only one who has gone through this stage or that. We all need to stick together, encourage, & help each other out where we can. If I can even reach 1 parent, then that makes me glad!
