‘Mum’ and ‘Dad’ are such small words and yet those three simple letters denote the most challenging, exciting and difficult job most of us will ever do. From the moment we decide to have a child we are in at the deep end, with so many questions to ask and choices to make, even before our baby arrives.
The journey towards parenting can be arduous. Trying to conceive is often a challenge, pregnancy brings a mixed bag of emotions, adoption processes frequently feel like a roller-coaster and childbirth ranges from traumatic to orgasmic and back again. And when we have overcome all of those obstacles… the challenge of parenthood is just beginning!
Being a parent is incredible, inspiring and joyful yet it can also be intense and sometimes overwhelming. Today more than ever we face overpowering pressure to give our child the perfect upbringing. Each and every decision we make along the way is important and many of the parenting choices we make today affect our child’s whole future.
So how should we be guided to make such critical choices? Should we follow our parents’ example? Should we take advice from friends? Should we read parenting books? Or should we simply rely on our natural instincts? The decision boils down to one big question… who, or what, can we trust? Well, at My Informed Life we trust science. Science that deals in facts, measurements, statistics and results that are repeatable. Our website is built around this ethos.
