Anybody who is a parent will most likely tell you that it is one of the most blessed and most rewarding job that they ever had. But will also proceed to add that it is no easy task. Being a parent is a lifelong commitment and it entails a seemingly infinite number of responsibilities. As a child, this is the stage where your son or daughter will experience most of their firsts. First words, first walks, so it is important that someone should be guiding them in order to become better persons later in life. Just like a good building, a good foundation is needed if you want to ensure that they will have a bright future. And this is possible with good parenting.
As a parent it is your sole duty to give unconditional love to your child because he or she deserves all the love that you can give. And that is what a good parent do. But as it is said before, parenting is not an easy task. It will demand the majority of your time and it will tire you out. You can read about parenting and various tips on books and in the internet but there is simply no substitute for the actual experience. One thing you need to know is that being a parent is not for the faint of heart. It is not the kind of job where you can just turn your back and walk away from. Once you become a parent, you will remain one forever and you will carry all the responsibilities that it entails with you.
Now it may seem like parenting is just too much of a responsibility, and to tell you the truth, yes it is. But it is also the most rewarding job. Throughout your existence, you have probably experience many events and happenings in your life which you can say that you are truly happy but it does not hold a candle to the joy that you will feel once your new born baby is placed within your arms. The inexplicable bliss that just overwhelms you when they wrap around their soft little hands on your fingers. Your perception in life will change and tears of joy will trickle down your cheeks. It is when you can say, that life is indeed beautiful.
