Pregnancy and Parenting
Although many books have been published on parenting, there is no essential guideline, no bible on this joyful, yet difficult, title. Raising a child elicits a struggle for a parent, as no child responds well to all styles of parenting. Our goal is to provide you with a basic outline: how to set limits, teach responsibility, parent a child with special needs, and establish an important emotional connection with your child. Additionally, we have dedicated a whole section on taking time for yourself and continuing to cultivate your marriage.
Below you will find all the tips written on this topic. For more specific browsing, see the "now browsing" section on the left side of the page.

When experiences don’t meet our expectations—what we imagined something to be like or feel like—it is a big disappointment. And, when we have expectations for ourselves, and we fall short of fulfilling those expectations, we can be very hard on ourselves, and unforgiving. This is especially true for people who are used to being able to handle whatever comes their way. Many times our expectations are unrealistic, but we don’t realize it, and instead feel depressed. For that reason, it is important to have realistic expectations for things. If you find that an experience is nothing like you expected, you need to revise those expectations and make them more reasonable. This doesn’t mean you failed, it means you set up a scenario that is simply not possible for you or anyone else. Now that the reality is here, its time to adjust your expectations and goals for yourself.
