The Struggles And Joys Of Parenthood

Parent of the year

This comic was definitely drawn by a parent. In this comic, dad and son are playing Hide and Seek, but dad doesn’t want to see his son. He tries really hard not to. The father wants to encourage and cheer his son.


The lesson in this adorable, heartwarming, and fun comic is that parents should accept their children for who they are. They should have a positive attitude, and they should show unconditional love to them.

To be young and carefree

Here, two parents as conversing, talking about how they envy their kids who can do whatever they want as they don’t have to worry about money. The kids on the other hand are worried that their playtime may be interrupted.

This comic seems a bit negative, but it can teach us how to be appreciative of what we have.

We should appreciate what we have and be content with our current situation rather than envy others. But maybe if we look at this situation from another perspective, maybe we could see how good our current life is and be grateful for it.

Comparing yourself to others is a surefire way to feel down about yourself. The grass isn’t always greener on the other side, but your own side may be pretty great if you just take a look. Gratitude is a very positive emotion to have, so let it be the first thing you feel when you wake up and see what’s around you. Perhaps something may have changed and it’s no longer as good, but if you are grateful for what is present, then this new situation won’t bring sadness. It’ll make room for hope for the future.
