First Time Purchases New Parents Make
With more clarity and direction
partofyourworld.org helps you become more certain in parenting so you can see your child thrive.
As new parents we have never raised children before. But all of us want to see our child grow up to live a happy and fulfilled adult life. This expectation can create a lot of pressure and uncertainty, especially for us first-time parents - partofyourworld.org is here to help you!
Becoming a new parent is one of the most underestimated roles in life
Just about any couple can have a baby...
Just about any couple assumes they can parent well.
Some of us believe that..
..buying all kinds of things for our child is the key to unlocking their happiness. When having chosen this approach... as parents, we're surprised to witness the same child seeking the key to their happiness and fulfillment in materialistic things in their adult life - and never finding it - in the worst case ending up in depression, drug addiction or even suicide.
..it's all about achieving and being the best. When having chosen this approach... as parents, we're surprised to witness the same child seeking the key to their happiness and fulfillment limited to success and achievement in their adult life - in the worst case ending up as total narcissists, feeling empty and disconnected from themselves and others.
And some think...
..becoming our child's best friend and doing everything for them is the key to helping them in their development. When having chosen this approach... as parents, we're surprised to witness the same child expecting the parents to hand them the key to their happiness and fulfillment in their adult life - in the worst case ending up incapable of taking care of themselves, not knowing who they truly are and not knowing what they want in life.
Do you see the pattern here?
As new parents it all comes down to our capability of parenting.
What we can notice above is that there's a difference between meaning well and it actually serving the development of a child.
Think back to a time in your childhood when you felt left alone, misunderstood or misguided.
Without judgement, did you feel as if your parents were lacking the understanding of what you needed at the time?
How do you feel your parents´ decisions and way of treating you affected you and your development?
Do you feel you would have benefitted if your parents would have been capable of truly understanding your needs - therefore, having made better decisions as parents to support your development?
And now think of the fortunate children you came across in school that were happy and social - how their parents may have guided them...
Your child could be one of the fortunate ones too. Your capability of parenting lies in your hands - and it makes all the difference in your child's ability to grow to experience a happy and fulfilling adult life.
Why do we say that the role of being a new parent is "underrated"?
Simple: look at the increasing rates of depression and suicide in our society today.
It's not the best baby gadgets, it's not the toys, it's not the sugar that help our children develop the capability to live happy and fulfilled adult lives. No amount of any materialistic thing will prepare your child in that way. It's you. It's your responsibility to step up to your role as new parents.
In other words: our parenting has a high level of influence on the quality of our child's development and the decisions and choices they make later on in life.
Yes, parenting can be easier...
You can leave your child's development up to chance...
The truth is, being a new parent doesn't have to be a guessing game... it can become easier... but the path requires your willingness to continuously grow and to consistently apply what you learn. Just like the fortunate child you came across back in school that seemed naturally happy, you can be the parents that support their child in growing to become the being that says "YES!" to life as well.
But the only way parents become capable of such parenting is either to have received it themselves or by putting in the effort to learn it.
If we can summarize our approach to this one phrase, it would be: "take responsibility."
Step up to the role of being new parents. Learn to understand the needs of your child at the different stages in their life and make better parenting decisions.
If you're ready to take responsibility for your child's development - partofyourworld.org focuses on supporting you on your journey as new parents. We´re not experts and we don´t know everything, and yes there´s never a guarantee... but like you, we put in our effort and try our best.
