Parenting challenges try us at almost every stage of our children's lives.
Infants and toddlers
When they're infants, it's transitioning from breast to bottle. Then it's separation anxiety and toddler biting and bath time struggles.
As they approach the preschool years, it's pacifier weaning, potty training and bedtime battles.
5-10 year olds
Fast forward a few years, and we're into the elementary years, and we face parenting challenges like sibling rivalry, social challenges, and balancing extra-curriculars.
Tweens and Teens
And then, then the teenage years hit. One minute you're telling them to pick their wet towels up off the floor, and the next, you're stressing about sending your teen off to college.
No matter how old our kids are, there's always some challenge that we'd love to find a solution for.
