Why Does Parenting Seem So Lonely?

Dear Parent,

How are you? That question seems like an odd way to start this email but I really want to know.

I want to know how you are feeling about parenting? Are you frustrated or scared or uncertain because parenting a teenager is just about the hardest thing you have ever done? I would imagine many of you are nodding your head about now. And do you know what our default is set to when we get frustrated or scared? We draw back or isolate when what we really need to do is reach out to another person for encouragement.

Others Have Gone Before You

Just in case you haven’t heard someone say it out loud, parenting can feel like one of the loneliest aspects of your life. But it doesn’t have to be. There are so many times you will question your decisions regarding your teenager and in that uncertainty you will feel as if you are the only one to struggle with this. But you’re not. There are other parents who have walked this same path and would love to encourage you with encouragement that they themselves received.

2 Corinthians 1: 4 says, “He comforts us in all our affliction, so that we may be able to comfort those who are in any kind of affliction, through the comfort we ourselves receive from God!”

I can’t think of a clearer way for God to state that He doesn’t wish for any of us to feel alone even in the loneliness of parenting!

So….how are you? Because I really want to know! Check out this month’s Online Parenting Class Video.

Walking/praying with you,

Mark
