    It is challenging, but there's nothing more rewarding. They can change your life completely to the point that you see yourself doing things that you once said "never" for. But all the hugs, kisses, smiles... There's nothing like it. It has got to be one of the most difficult feelings to describe. The feeling of being a parent. smile

    How could you ask a question like this? I would assume so...

    In a word, Yes. 
    For sure it's difficult, you're at work 24/7 with no dinner break, no paid leave and what sometimes feels like little recognition of your efforts.  However, every day your children are going to do or say something that makes every minute of lost sleep and all those frantic 'no break' days fade while you revell in the wee person developing before your eyes.
    It's the hardest but most rewarding job in the world.. and I can say this while being fully aware of the 'cheesey' factor, because I know that millions of other parents out there would back me up. smile

    Some kids are more difficult than others to raise.
    Naturally if a child has a physical or mental malady there will be a lifetime of challenges.
    There are many factors involved raising a "normal" child as well including parent/child personalities, unified parental front vs divided over discipline.
    The maturity of the parents, financial resolve, support of in-laws/family, quality of the enviroment/neighborhood and schools,

    There are also things you have no control over such as {how other kids interact with your child}. (bullies, peer pressure, in-crowd, jock, cheerleader, nerd...etc) The vast majority of these issues will be determined by THEIR appearance and personality.

    However the word "difficult" is not easy to define or measure. Calculus may be difficult for one person and a breeze for another person. What may stress one person out may be another person's comfort zone.

    Probably the most important things two people can do before bringing a child into the world is to get their financial house in order, make sure they agree on how the children should be raised, if one person will be staying at home,(if so, for how long) or will the children be placed in day care and then put it on paper!
    I can assure you that once the child or children arrive someone is going to want to change the details of what was discussed. Finally, expect the unexpected.
