This book was written for parents who are divorced, or in the process of divorce, and trying to raise children on their own. It covers parenting from the initial onset of the divorce to the day-to-day life that happens after. From the affects on the children to visitation and the transition with stepparents. Children Are Not Asked To Be Born helps you, the parent (or stepparent), every step of the way. Divorce is hard: on the couple, on the family, and on the children most of all; sometimes it helps to have a guide to help you through these tough times.
Although much of the book touches on events regarding divorce and single parent situations, it also covers general parenting guidelines. Whether you are a divorced parent or a two parent family, you may find this book useful in assisting your every day parenting needs.
As a divorced, single mother, my daughter's mainly one-parent upbringing has made her a kind, loving, caring, active member of society. That is your job as a parent: instill your values in your children and let them set out into the world prepared for whatever life brings.
Parenting is the most rewarding experience you will have in life. It is not easy, but, the rewards definitely outweigh any hardship you experience along the way. It will be a wild ride, but hang on and enjoy it. It seems that in a blink of an eye, you turn around and your children are grown. It happens fast. This book helps to keep you focused on your little ones and enjoy them while you can. They will be gone before you know it!
