It is easier to wait for problems instead of staying in front of them. But staying in front makes life’s stresses less for YOU the parent.
And yes, it can be a lonely journey – but it is how your attitude is what makes the journey as much as what you want in life.
Each of us is unique, comes from a different background, and has different histories and cultures. But I know that each one as parents wanted the same for our children to have opportunities to become the person of their own potential. To do that, YOU, as the parent need to be proactive, need to know what is coming up in YOUR child’s life, see their potential and abilities and to have expectations for YOUR child.
I tried every day to encourage and inspire my children, as a single parent. I was never a victim, I have never complained or whined. There are always, and there will always be parents who have more money than myself. But there are people who do not have as much as I do. Get over worrying or being fearful as a parent – read and learn and do YOUR research on what is best for YOU and YOUR child.
