Our Biggest Struggle

What would you say is your biggest struggle as a parent?

Many parents might point to TV and other media. Others might say peer pressure—and that is a big one. The wrong kinds of friends can do irreparable harm to our kids’ futures.

Still others might point to drugs or alcohol – especially if there’s a history of abuse.

These are all real concerns, but for most of us, our biggest struggle as parents is our own emotional inadequacies. We carry a lot of wounds and baggage from our childhood, and don’t always know how to handle problems when they occur.

That’s why it’s so important to read and research advice from those who have already been through what we’re in the midst of. There are lots of great resources on the market, if we’ll just take time to look.
