The hardest part of being a parent


The hardest part of being a parent is watching your child go through something tough and not being able to fix it for them.
When they are little Mom's can always make them feel better  when they fall and get a scraped knee or they are sick but when they grow up and they are emotionally heart broken your heart hurts with them but you can not take the pain away.

So true. I always get this gut feeling something is going on with them .it's hard when you can't help them. But to let them know you are always there for them. I love my boys with all my heart. ❤

That is the worst and it's no BETTER As they get older!

Yes it is,  but they get stronger and figure out how to handle things on their own. Give them ideas on how to solve the problem. Make your children strong, not victims waiting for someone to fix things for them. You won’t be around forever.

Parents make you strong. They don’t fix your problems, they stand by you while you fix them up.

Don't "fix" your kids' problems or they will always depend on you, be insecure and develop anxiety! Help and support yes, but let them figure things out and come up with their own solutions...hit and miss, develop survival skills.  It's called growing up and facing life!  Life is not meant to be a walk in the park!
