Parenting is the most challenging job that some adults undertake. With such high demands, it’s not uncommon to feel frustrated. Parents can lose control when they are feeling isolated, involved in difficult relationships, experiencing financial stress or lacking information on child development and child-rearing techniques.

However, becoming an informed parent will help build effective child rearing skills and find a place within the community.

“Greet all people with a smile.”
