I’m sure you have all heard the saying it takes a village to raise a child?
Well it’s true. As a parent you can do it by yourself but it is damn hard. Support from others is the fundamental underpinning of your parenting. Without it your physical, emotional and psychological well being are at risk. We need others help.
Parenting is fulfilling yet emotionally and physically stressful. We need to know that there are others out there who will have our back if needed.
It doesn’t have to be just family. It can be family and friends and other professionals. Your village can expand all over the world but the people closest to you will be your best source of help, guidance and support.
