Parenting and Families: Becoming a parent never comes with a manual. We learn from our families, friends, support groups, doctors, and others what are ways to deal with the challenges that arise at each stage in a child’s life. Here are some tools that are available for you. Don’t wish away your child’s life. Rather, enjoy what you learn and experience at each stage. It can be truly rewarding as you prepare them for their own future.

Raising a family is both challenging and rewarding. It is not for the faint of heart. Yet, when you see the results of a child becoming a happy, independent, and loving young person, you will start reaping the rewards for the time spent on your feet, on your knees, and sitting. We understand and are glad to support you. We have raised a family and look forward to the next generations that will follow. Like so many others, we believe that family must come first. We need others to help us to provide wisdom, guidance, and resources to help develop those family bonds we desire. We will continue to look for and add helpful items in this Parenting and Family Category.
