Sit down, relax, put your legs up for a change, grab a cup of your favorite drink, you are about to have a good laugh as I share some of the funniest jokes /Memes I found online about raising boys. If you are raising a boy child you will agree with me that it can be such an adventure.
Why Am I Sharing This?
Because for most people parenting turned to be a synonym of stress/responsibility/tension/conflicts and a lot of other negative words. I came here to say, It ought not to be so. A bit of chilling will not harm, so BREATH.
So maybe before we get into the jokes let me say:
You are doing better than you think.
If you are asking, How do you know?
I know because your child is still in one piece, If he wasn’t, you wouldn’t be here reading this article, you will be right behind bars.
Between me and you, you know the number of times you felt like………, So take it from me you are doing well, better than you think, I repeat. Especially because nobody prepared you for this calling, you had to wing it as you go.
And even if you try, you cannot be fully prepared because kids are not the same, you just don’t know a kind of breed that will come your way.NB ( If you still have a chance to prepare , do your best to get some basics right, read, sign up for parenting courses, or find a coach or mentor).
I recommend that you sign up for Positive Parenting Solution course OR Join the Facebook community of mothers raising boys. OR subscribe to Scribd a digital library loaded with awesome books on Parenting and Raising boys. Check my full review on Scribd here. All of the above will still be a great combination
One day my son asked me, Mom did you go to some parenting school? And I said No, why are you asking?
And he said it seems like you always know what to do or what to say to us.
My eyes almost popped, deep within me, I said I wish!
So I know you also might not be feeling like it, but you are crashing it, forget about perfection, there is nothing like a perfect parent, with the above-mentioned resources endeavor to be a better parent today than you were yesterday.
Is It All That Bad?
With its next to insanity moments, being a parent, having a privilege to nurture, groom a human being is just one of the most beautiful privileges one can enjoy.
Sometimes I look at my kids and my jaw drops at the thought ‘ Did God trust me this much?’ In my imperfections, He trusted me with a set of real life human beings for me to love, nurture, guide, and groom. For me to create a conducive environment that will enable them to be the best they can ever be, but God!
So this adventure can be bitter and sweet, what sustains us during the bitter days is the sweet memories of the other day.
Can you remember that sweet warm hug?
Can you see that warm smile that says mom you rock?
Can you remember the sweet feeling of just be called dad?
How about I love you, mom?
Or dad you are the best
How about the sweet innocent look, coming with a gentle touch that says you are my world, the best of such happens during breastfeeding moments ( Sorry daddy)
Do you remember how proud you felt when he came out top of the class or performed well in his favorite sport or whatever he is good at?
These sweet memories sustain us when we are on the other side of the wheel.
So well done for remaining sane while juggling parenting and life. I take off my hat for you.

The world needs more of your kind, A kind that protects, guides, and groom with Intention. A kind that is determined to fill the next generation with assets than liabilities of human beings.
