But everything changes the day you become a parent and experiencing it is the only way to truly know what that means. Fortunately, there are some things you actually can prepare for.

This is not about me, or about you. This is about millions of women who wish that their mother-in-laws would be just amicable enough to live with. Yeah, not every mother-in-law is a blood-sucking monster, but mine sure is, and from what I gather, she’s got company of many. These sensible women with all their experiences tend to be so judgemental and rude to their own daughter-in-laws. Why cannot a mother-in-law welcome a daughter-in-law joyously, with good intentions, and a non-meddling nature? So the other day when I met some friends for lunch and the ladies bitching session started, I knew I had to pour my heart out, not just for myself, but for many others. I hope all mom-in-laws read this, and understand that there is no competition; we daughter-in-laws are no control freaks, and we humbly accept to be imperfect. God damn it, we are perfect in our own imperfections. Why can’t you just see that?

As a parent, it’s heart-wrenching to see your little one suffer every night. Countless visits to the hospital and emergency rooms is emotionally draining for the entire family. Ever wonder why your child often experiences issues like wheezing, sneezing, snoring and congestion? Do you feel helpless when you have to medicate your child and spend sleepless nights ensuring they are safe and healthy?

Every time someone makes a comment about stay-at-home mums or working mums, others pounce to start a debate on what kind of mums are superior. One group talks about how being for the child is more important and the other group argues how women can and need to have it all. We at www.beingtheparent.com believe that working or not working is a personal choice and it is best not to judge one group or the other. That said, we also understand that there are advantages and disadvantages to both the choices. One of the biggest problem of this constant and never ending debate is that neither of the groups find it easy to come forward with problems they face, lest anyone thinks they made the wrong choice.
