Why Most Parents of Today’s Time Feel Parenting is Difficult?
Here are a few explanations for why parenting today differs from what it was in the 1980s and 1990s when we were born and raised.
1. There are more expectations for parents.
Parents today want their kids to be excellent at everything rather than just raising them to start growing up and leave the house.
2. The pace of the globe has greatly increased.
When we have young children, the rapid speed of change is especially difficult because they develop at a slower rate than adults do, and taking care of them takes too much time. Due to the rush of life, we must intentionally slow down so that we can spend quality time with our families.
3. Social media’s introduction – online predators
It’s a totally new experience for parents to be aware of and know how to safeguard kids from everything that simply did not exist when most of us were kids.
