20 - Parenting Can Be Hard Quotes

Parenting is one of the most challenging journeys of life and surely every parent agrees. No matter how much effort each parent puts in, it always feels like the tough days will never end.

 At times, so overwhelming is the process of rearing kids that parents tend to feel underappreciated, lost and often lonely too. And if you’re on the verge of pulling out your hair on some parenting days, that’s not unusual too.

Parenting is indeed the toughest job in the world but we’re to assure you that you’re not alone in this struggle. Millions of parents around the world feel exactly the same but what everyone also agrees is that the process is just as rewarding. You wouldn’t want to change being a parent for anything else in the world for truly the little humans feel like your greatest blessing and wealth.

Hence, when times get tough and you’re on the verge of collapsing, here are some quotes to remind you that parenting can be hard for everyone, not just you. There is light at the end of the tunnel and once you’re children have transitioned through the difficult early years of development, you’ll be proud to see what fine individuals you have raised.

Here are some of the best ‘parenting can be hard quotes’ to inspire you:




1.  You are the example

{tweetme}“Do not worry that your children fail to listen to you; instead worry that your children are always watching you.”{/tweetme}

Do you feel flustered when your children resemble a tornado that threatens to blow everything in its path? Surely you do.

But the trick is not to let your emotions scatter and control collapse just because your children are not listening to you. You may end up doing something that will set a bad behavioral example for them. Instead, it is wise to remember that your actions, your own behavior will leave lasting examples for them and you need to exhibit those wisely.


2.  Forgive and Change

{tweetme}“Parenting is about forgiving the last generation and guiding the next one”{/tweetme}

The process demands a lot of effort because parents tend to communicate with their children in the way they grew up in. If you become the childhood you grew up in (if it was a difficult one) you will surely find the journey tough. Instead, make a conscious effort to change and parent the way you wanted as a child.


3.  It can be hard

{tweetme}“I know it can be hard for you to find the strength every morning to get up and have these little humans rely on you. I know it can be hard for you to feel that your world is so small a times. But I want you to remember that you are the world. You are the universe around which the life of your little ones revolves.  You are their home, you are their security, you are love personified for them and you are their comfort. You are the definition of everything for your children and so, even on the hardest of days as a parent, never forget how special you are to your little humans.”{/tweetme}


4.  What you have already

{tweetme}“When parenting feels hard, remind yourself to stop trying to raise a good. Instead, remind yourself that you already have one.”{/tweetme}


5.  A Blessing

{tweetme}“Remember, even on the hardest days of parenting, that you are not raising an inconvenience. You are raising your greatest blessing, your child, a God-given human being.”{/tweetme}


6.  Real Parent

{tweetme}“Don’t waste your efforts trying to be a perfect parent because that’s where things will get tough. Just try being a real one all the time.”{/tweetme}


7.  What your child is going through

{tweetme}"Your child is not giving you a hard time. Your child is experiencing a hard time and this is when you must find strength and patience to persevere."{/tweetme}

15. Takes more than you think

{tweetme}"If you believe being a parent means having limitless patience then you’re wrong. You need much more than limitless!"{/tweetme}
