Parenting – How to break the nerves

It is natural for parents to be nervous. Why will they not be? Being a parent is not easy. It is a big responsibility to shape and support another life that might not have any information about the world prior to you. You are their first interaction in this world. You help them make sense of it. If you are a first-time parent, it is natural to be nervous. Your life changes significantly; your life schedule has to be adjusted to accommodate a new life. Your priorities would change, and so would your approach to life to an extent. At the same time, you would be worried that you are not raising your kid right, or you don’t know what’s right and not right.

Yep, parenting for first time parents can be chaotic. However, it doesn’t necessarily have to be. If you avoid the internet for tips and tricks of effective parenting and rely on some well-written early childhood development books on parenting, you would get a lot of insights and validation for all the nervous thoughts you currently think are morally incorrect. It is okay to be nervous to an extent. It makes sure you are alarmed about the safety of your kid. Don’t let it overwhelm you otherwise; you’ll deteriorate your mental health and physical health as well. Find support in friends and family; don’t take on parenting as a solo task. We all need help at times.
