Moms have a lot of challenges they face on a daily basis. The only way to overcome these challenges is to face them. Identifying these challenges is the first step to overcoming them.
Moms have to learn to balance their lives and their kid's lives. They have to sacrifice something so their kids can get to do the things they need to do. After you have a child, you have to adjust your life to fit their schedule. Their activities and needs have to come first. Your personal life, as well as your professional life, will take a backseat to your kid's needs. With time you will learn that compromise is your best friend. It will help you get things you need to do done, and your kid's as well.
Your money will be a lot more tied up after you have kids. Your money will have to go to your kids' needs. You won't be able to spend money on the things you want as often. Even if you plan out your expenses, be prepared to spend more than that. Accidents happen when there are kids in the house. The things you want to buy aren't necessities, and they can wait. If you choose to put them in private school. You will have to buy girls or boys school uniforms. Along with school supplies and tuition. You will have to pay for extracurricular activities if they want to participate in them.
Your guilt will be a challenge you face daily. Parents will feel guilt from pursuing their careers. They will feel like they don't spend enough time with their kids. Even when you discipline your kids, you will feel guilty. You want to shower your kids with gifts and rewards. You can do this but only when they deserve it. You have to discipline them. Reward them when they do something good and take it away when they do something wrong. You still love your kids when you discipline them. You are preparing them for life.
Kids make messes for you to clean every day. No matter how much you try to childproof your house, they will still mess it up. Anything in your house can be used as a weapon and make a mess. Some messes need more than to be cleaned up. Kids break things, and they have to be replaced. All you can do is try to keep things out of their reach. It will get better as they grow up and understand right from wrong.
Moms sacrifice their lives and their bodies when they have kids. Doing this can bring plenty of physical and emotional challenges in their lives. These challenges may feel like they will never end. In time they will be distant memories, and you will have raised a beautiful child. In the meantime, keep going and push through the rough times. The challenges you are facing will make you a better parent. It will all be worth it in the end.
