The job of a parent...

The job of a parent... NEVER ends!
It's no secret that our world is constantly changing and evolving.. some would say it's changing for the better.. but I argue it's changing for the worse...
I believe we are slowly losing many of our values and making our every day lives more and more liberal...Kids are losing respect for adults and focusing their energy on more and more lame things..
Liberalism doesn't equal freedom and it definitely doesn't equal progress... Some parents fail to teach their children the importance of self respect and dignity and that's how we end up with kids involved in crimes, drug issues and who knows what else...
I get it, being a parent is HARD.. it is by far the toughest "job" I've had to do; certainly the one with the most responsibilities and the biggest challenges possible..but then again, nobody said it'd be easy...
As parents we need to understand that our kids are like "modeling clay", the more time that passes, the harder it gets to mold.. We have so much power to change the world by positively influencing our kids since they will only reflect what we teach them...so we need to exercise that power while we still can...
The early years are crucial and as parents we need to be able to make a difference and make our kids want to be good people.. we need to understand that there is NOTHING more important than our kids and everything takes a back seat when it comes to kids..because parenting is a FULL TIME job and we need to treat it as such....
I know this might sound like a totally random post, but I feel the need to remind every parent that while we all know that frustration comes with the job, parenting is the best opportunity we have to make a difference in our future and our children's future so we must strive to do a great job at it...for them.. for our kids!

Happy parenting! Keep at it!
