Parenting can be both a challenging and rewarding journey. You may question whether you’d make a good parent, or if you can find the support you need. We’re here to help you every step of the way.
When considering parenting, there is much to think about. Think about these questions during the decision-making process:
- Do I have a healthy, strong support system in place?
- What material resources would I need?
- What am I most worried about with parenting?
- What if I have a special needs or sick child?
- Do I live in a safe, environment?
- Will my partner co-parent?
Do I Have What It Takes To Be A Parent?
Parenting takes heart, humility, and courage. But most of all, it requires love. Children need to be safe, supported, and cared for. Basic necessities like food, clothing, and shelter are must-haves. But your child also needs to feel your love.
