How can you assess your child's self-esteem? What's normal and when should you worry?This blog post is shared by Julie de Azevedo Hanks, LCSW, our SheByShe marriage and parenting expert. You can find more from Julie here.
There’s no doubt in most women’s minds: being a parent today is extremely challenging. One of the key factors is the current state of the U.S. education system.
In a recent SheByShe Parenting study, 71 percent of the participating women said that they feel the current U.S. education system makes it harder to be a parent today. These women shared a variety of reasons supporting this belief, many of which are shared below.
Today, there are abundant entertainment options for children. Traditional toys, games, make-believe and television are augmented with sophisticated game consoles, tablets, laptops, electronic learning devices and smartphones.
Are mothers rejoicing? Not at all.
An overwhelming 81 percent of women participating in a recent SheByShe parenting study say the entertainment industry makes it more challenging to be a parent today. One woman said, “There are far more avenues I have to monitor to guard against what my kids are being exposed to. When I was growing up, there were no smartphones, tablets, Internet, etc. I dread the day my daughter (4) will ask for a cell phone. It’s a day that I worry about.”
A recent SheByShe parenting survey revealed women believe it is much more challenging to be a mother today than when they were raised. Finding time to be a good parent, protecting children from a dangerous world and an over-saturated, salacious entertainment industry are some of the top challenges for mothers today. Still, women continue to celebrate the joys of motherhood.
Mothers today bask in small, everyday accomplishments and simple smiles from their children, as well as the heartwarming glory of seeing children successfully step into the world of adults.
Here are real women’s words about the blessedness of being a mom.
