Parenting.. A Goal, A Duty or a Journey ?
Posted July 6, 2008on:
Recently I was talking to my friends regarding the motherhood and the way females get to make so many changes after the baby is born. During the discussion, we spoke about lot of things like the career options for woman, why she has to bear all the changes etc.,
While we were discussing on the goals of life, Career, Money, time for her hobbies and lot of such things came up and I ended up adding Parenting also a major goal of life to which my friend responded like this..
“Parenting is not a goal, its just the duty”….
If I have observed so far, a goal or a duty ends up at some part of time.. and the way our parents take care of ourselves even after we are well versed and are able to(or qualify to lead an independent life) I see that Parenting never ends till the person lasts… So I just concluded that Parenting is neither a goal nor a duty but a fantastic journey ahead…
What do you say ?
