Dream Parenting: Find an Audience of Appreciation

Parenting is a tough and often, lonely job. Who can you talk to share your successes and your struggles? Who will appluad you when you have a good day and hug you when you don’t? You need an audience that is nonjudgemental and empathic. Not many of us have this in their lives currently. You may have to look long and hard for this person(s) but don’t give up on this exercise. It is important. Call this person daily and tell them what you did great, no matter how small. Let them be your cheerleader. In turn, you can be there’s. This isn’t necessarily a time for confession of your parenting problems but you don’t have to hide them either. You wand, no need, to find someone who will appreciate your efforts and your end results.
