Being a parent is difficult or rewarding or frightening or wonderful. What is
It always start with difficult during young age, frightening when they reach teenage years and lastly to rewarding and wonderful when they are all grown up and are successful in their careers and even as a human being.
I was excited and happy to have children , loved it all , every age is special, teenage years a bit dificult but interesting, now they all away from me I miss them but they call me, have 2 grandchildren !
Being a parent is all of the above, and all at different times in their and your life.
It seems that as they are growing, each day can have a little of all that you have listed. Some children are difficult to wake up, you are frightened to let them go off to school, for fear of the unknown. The wonderful report card can be rewarding for you both. This is just one day in the life of a parent, and what one would term a 'normal' day. It gets a bit more difficult when they get older.
The rewards for the parent are everyday in the life of the child, then when they become adults, the rewards are much greater. We are allotted Grand children, that is like the 'Grand Prize' for a job well done!
I started out with a 5 year old son and I would say, challenging is the right word for this experience. It is wonderful, too, and awe-inspiring, it opens new perspectives and makes us see the world with different eyes, but all in all it is the most challenging thing, because they are very much personalities of their own and it is a challenge to find the right balance between guiding them and letting them run and grow.

I happen to think that children come with their own nature and the best thing to do to raise happy empowered children is to allow them to be who they are born to be instead of forcing them to conform to our ideas of what ideal people should be? Any thoughts? Are you a molder or an allower?
