Being a parent is uncharted territory when you first find out you’re expecting. Chances are, you’ll spend most of your time looking up developmental milestones for the first 12 months. You will read all of the blogs and spend days interviewing pediatricians. Despite your best efforts, there may be a few things that you overlook. Here are some examples.
A Good Start
Bringing home a baby is one of the most exciting times in the lives of all parents. But it is not always a land of milk and honey. Here are some resources to help you get settled in, establish a consistent routine, introduce the newest member of your family to the four-legged children, and boost their brain activity.
The “Kid” Years
Babyhood is fleeting. Soon, you will have a child with an independent streak and a life outside of home.
Parenting In The Teen Years
For all of the sleepless nights you had with a newborn, you’ll have just as many in the teen years. As your child grows into a young adult, your parenting obligations may get uncomfortable.
These resources offer great information to stick in your back pocket for use later. Even if you don’t think it’s important to worry about cyberbullying or sexuality just yet, it is never too early to prepare yourself for what’s to come.
