Getting real about the side effects of parenting

GTU Featured Guest

The side effects of parenting can sound a lot like those of a medication: headaches, trouble sleeping, back pain, quick to overreact emotionally, changes in voice, irritability, and euphoria.

According to Richard and Linda Eyre from Values Parenting, parents experiencing these symptoms need to lighten up and laugh. The problems and daily struggles might not be funny right now, but someday you’ll be able to look back and laugh: crisis + time = humor.

Perhaps the next time your child gets into trouble, grab your camera instead of your kid. Children are durable and you’ll treasure the memories forever.
