We have shown examples of what parenthood is like numerous times before, and we still believe that as much as we try to understand what it really takes to be a parent, we will not be able to do it until we become parents.

List like the one below are the perfect tool, because they give you examples and ideas about how to handle being a parent and make it easier for you.
