Graduation days. Do you remember the days? The pomp and circumstance. The long robes. The feeling of accomplishment as you turn that tassel from one side of the graduation cap to the other. All signs of completion. You are done. You took all the tests. You wrote all the papers. You passed all the grades. You are now a graduate. Your education is over.
Wrong! Even though we may be tempted to think that education ends with high school or college, when we have children we are reminded that in many ways, education has started all over again.
Children don’t come with text books, manuals or detailed instructions. How do you take care of that baby? How do you handle tantrums? What do you do with a teen who wants to show her independent side? There are the wonderful days of parenting and there are the tough days where all you can do is pry your feet off the [sticky] floor and try to make it through the day.
We all need encouragement.
We all need support.
We can all continue to grow as parents.
That is why I am excited to share with you about the first Parenting Expo in Cleveland. It is the one event all about parenting. A two-day family-friendly event, where parents, grandparents, caregivers and educators will have an opportunity to receive up-to-date information on what’s important to them right now – from prenatal care to raising teens.
Don’t miss the giveaway below.
We are giving away 4 pairs of tickets!
