    18 and pregnant – What should I do?

    I am 18 and pregnant and pretty much freaking out! I haven’t finished high school, I have no job, and I am still living with my parents.

Have you…

    Raising Children – Giving advice when you don’t have children

    Everyone has a specific idea of what it takes to raise a child or to raise multiple children. They also have an idea of how someone should be doing it, but unless you are a parent of a child you really don’t have any idea at all. Raising children isn’t the same for everyone and if you don’t have a child you really cannot give someone advice on how to raise them especially if you do not know that child/children. Every Child is different. Every child is different so raising them is also going to be different than just taking care of someone else’s child. Raising children is not something…

    Parenting Definition – What Do You Think It Means?

    Parenting is a difficult job and there is more meaning to this word than just what you find in the dictionary. Everyone has a different way of parenting and a different idea on what this word means, so, the parenting definition definitely has more than just one single meaning or definition to it. In this article I am going to talk about what parenting means to me and you may or may not agree with what I say here and that is quite alright because as I stated everyone has a different idea on what this word means. What does the dictionary say? As I mentioned above there are several…
