Chicken Soup for The Soul Chronicles: The Joys of Parenthood. Enter to Win 1 of 3 Copies! #ChickenSoupForTheSoul
Chicken Soup For the Soul: Parenthood.
Being a parent sure doesn’t come with a rule book or manual, there’s ups and downs and you’re always learning something new. I have two beautiful girls that keep me on my toes in two completely different levels.
We’ve laughed, we’ve cried and we have made so many memories during our journey as parents.
Parenting — it’s a tough job, but also the best. Filled with anecdotes and advice from parents raising children of all ages, this book will uplift, inspire, and encourage you. Other parents, just like you, share their personal stories about all the joys, and the trials, of raising children. This book will touch your heart, make you laugh, and remind you why there is no better job than being a parent!
There are twelve chapters:
- Becoming a Family
- All in a Day’s Work
- Is There a Manual For This?
- Parenting Faux Pas
- Stop and Smell the Roses
- Learning From Each Other
- Treasured Moments
- From the Mouths of Babes
- What Goes Around Comes Around
- Love Conquers All
- Saying Thank You
- Giving Them Wings to Fly
What I enjoyed were the Treasured Moments and of course, the Parenting Faux Pas. It made me think and made me super happy and glad that I am not alone in this journey. And lastly, that Love Does Conquer All.
This upbeat and heartwarming book will entertain and inspire parents of all ages, raising children from birth to college and beyond. The common thread that connects these 101 stories is made of caring, humor, hard work and joy. Older parents will laugh a lot, tear up a little, and nod their heads in agreement as they recognize shared experiences shaping young lives. New parents will smile as they read about adventures to come.

I have learned that parenting is much different than I thought it would be. It's important to relax more and let things happen as they're going to happen.
I've learned that your instincts really do know what's best – learn to listen to them even if they go against what's being "suggested" by others
Patience Patience and Patience 🙂 & just follow your instincts, everything will come to you 🙂
I have learned to expect anything and just relax.
I have learned that children are so much smarter in so many ways than I ever thought before I had children.
