Parents, yes YOU! It takes a village to raise kids. Here’s why you should join ours.
By Bright by Text Team
Parenting is: __________ (adjective). What word would you fill in the blank with? We’ll go first: rewarding. Or maybe exhausting, smelly, hilarious, heartwarming, or possibly just…challenging. Every parent of a little one knows the roller coaster ride: the red-faced newborn cry, sweet smell of baby snuggles, sleepless nights, toothless grins, spit-ups, wobbly steps, adorable first words, tantrums, picky eating. The worry that we’re doing this parenting thing all wrong. And the hugs—oh the amazing kid hugs.
The Bright by Text team is here to help on the journey through early childhood, because we know how important those years are—and how hard it is to raise a child. Now, more than 100,000 parents and caregivers get our free, helpful parenting tips. Are you next?
