What ages are the toughest to parent???

Pregnant with my third but my oldest is only TWO, and I'm always tired! Love my kids but look forward to when it gets a bit easier....does it get easier? Do you think there is an age that is easier as far as parenting goes??

  • All of them. Each age has it's own issues and phases that can make it tough.

  • It Really depends on te temperament of the child. Some are easier at certain ages then others bit the more self help skills you develop in your child the easier it will be for you.:)
