Who said being a parent is easy? Dealing with cries in the middle of the night, diaper changes, temper tantrums, fevers, vomiting, spit-up, colloquy babies, leaving-home anxiety, postpartum depression, irregular sleeping patterns, bad eating habits, and much more all before our kids turn seven! Yet, despite all of this and more, everyone rejoices upon hearing news of a new member in the family. Have we lost our sanity? Or is there something really special about raising a child? Parenting... Who Said It Was Easy? Understanding Your Child is an attempt to establish a discussion for current and prospective parents on their greatest concern: their children. This book aims to highlight key problems young and experienced parents face when raising their children, while providing practical tips on how to become better parents. With more and more children making the dreaded claim, you don t understand me, our hope is to show parents that though times may be tough, there is light at the end of the tunnel and understanding our children is not as distant as it may seem.
