  • It is not easy raising 1, 2 or 5. But you do your best and hope that it is right. As a parent you become a mother, teacher, protector and taxi driver. You have to put your child first and make decisions for them teaching them the right way to make decisions, show respect and be disiplined. Trust me it is amazingly hard. I did it twice and would not change anything. I loved being a parent and am proud of my children.

  • I became a single parent with two children at 27. It was really hard and many people thought I couldn't do it. Do not listen to anyone who decides you can't be a good parent. Only you can decide to be a lousy parent. Don't be afraid to ask for help sometimes but I'm sure you will be fine.

  • Do not listen to them. Yes, it's hard. Yes, it's something that you can't fully plan for. However, the one thing I didn't plan on was how much I was going to absolutely, unconditionally love my child. I had no experience with babies, was pretty selfish with my time, and my son completely changed me. You'll be amazed at how much your love for them will get you through the hard times. Keep your head up, and prove them wrong! :)
