I agree with you!this is the toughest job i ever have.Being a parent is a lifetime commitment,you can divorce your husband but you cant divorce your kid "LOL".You can retire or resign from a job but not for being a parent.

I totally agree with you. Raising a child is definitely the toughest one, guiding to them to be god-fearing and all those good qualities that we wanted them to be. The biggest challenge is that, if we fail, our own child will suffer for our being irresponsible parent and their is no turning back, no rewinds. I think, many of us felt the same way too.

I don't think you are the only one. Its tough and in my view what makes its more tough is parents are the role models to kids and so parents need to "be a good human being" to teach the same to kids. And many a times this goody goody image is difficult to carry with the situations.

Even though I am not a parent as of yet I do agree 100% that parenting is the toughest job in the world. I remember what me and my brother put our mom through as kids we probably took a few years off of her life. It is a 24/7 job with no real vacations and impossible to call in sick. The job never ends and is often times thankless. The sacrifices that a mom makes so her kids can have a better life are something that you would never do in any job.

i do agree. it takes a lot because its emotional and physical work. you dont stop because they are in your care 24/7 and you teach your children, play with them and literally do everything for them. it is the most pressurised job aswell because how they turn out in life is down to you. their lives are in your hands and they rely on you for everything. there are no breaks. no leaving them at 5pm.

Well, being a parent is for not doubt a tough job. And those who come up with bright colors in this job are the blessed ones. However, I don't think its the toughest of all. Being a teacher is even more tough. I'm not saying this because I am a teacher. So I'm not biased. I'm neither a teacher nor a parent. :D But just think about it, you are considering parenting a tough job cause you have to manage a little baby unless he's big enough to handle himself. Or maybe a couple of babies right? Well, imagine managing 30 of them? Sounds horrible right? :D
