Do you remember when your child was an infant and parenting was overwhelming? Maybe you looked forward to the day that your child just got a little older, it would be less stressful on you, right? I used to feel that way, and then my oldest child turned into a teenager. As much as I truly enjoy her now, I’d love to go back to crayon colored walls and peanut butter and jelly kisses. Many external factors exist today that parents must deal with. Parents must contend with their child’s peers and the pressures that can bring. The media exposure through television and music can also fight against the positive message parents are trying to bring to their children. A parent’s work schedule may make it difficult to spend quality time together. There are always factors that we must overcome if we are to parent our children in a positive and uplifting manner.
