It is a demanding job that requires your total dedication; however, it’s crucial to realize that everyone feels the weight of parenthood at one time or another, so don’t worry and get ready to have some fun with these parenting memes.

It goes without saying that becoming a parent is an extremely difficult experience.
You can compare it to sailing through a storm on a tottering ship or riding a roller coaster – you know, bumpy and full of winding paths.
Now, of course, it’s also a very rewarding thing, but in addition to the deepest feelings of love and joy, being a parent can make you feel the most worry, stress, frustration, anger and hate you have ever felt in a relationship with another person.
But what better way to remind yourself that you’re not alone than by looking at some memes? Average parenting issues is an Instagram page that dedicates its posts to parenting and its universally encountered issues. The page currently has over 458,000 followers and is run by an influencer called Ilana Wiles.
Let’s learn a little more about the creator of the page! Ilana describes herself as follows on her blog, Mom Shorts“I’m a working mother in New York who writes a blog instead of sleeping. I have two daughters. Harlow is seven years old and Mazzy is ten. If you think you have more adorable kids, Mazzy and Harlow will challenge your kids to a cuteness contest. Where everyone will automatically be tied. Because pitting our kids against each other is absolutely NOT COOL. (Although I do it all the time.)”
The blogger then added: “I worked as a creative director in advertising for over 15 years before leaving to focus full time on Mommy Shorts in November 2013. Using this blog for a living is more work than I never would have imagined it, but nothing beats the flexibility of running your own business when you have kids.
Data from a 2020 survey by diaper rash society Boudreaux’s Butt Paste shows that 12% of parents feel ready when they have their first child, and most of you would probably agree that such a number is not particularly shocking.
The idea that people can only be ready for children after checking off certain items on a checklist has been around for a very long time. And while there’s no denying that having a degree and a stable, well-paying career, being in a secure relationship, and owning a home will allow you to better manage parenthood, there’s one aspect of that notion that’s a bit flawed: you never really “ready” to have children.
It’s sort of similar to how you’re already considered an adult, but despite that, no matter how many birthdays pass, you just never feel like one.
Time will pass and chances are you’ll never wake up and suddenly feel like you’re finally in the right position to tackle parenthood.
For example, most people choose to delay having children until they are financially stable – however, let’s face it, there isn’t “enough money”, unless you be of course one of the Kardashians. Now, that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t prepare at all; it just means there is no clear checkpoint for it.
You can never know enough, which is another important aspect to remember. Most people have no idea what they are doing with their lives, let alone what they should be doing and/or how they should care for another human being.
We all learn as we go, and remember that every child is unique, so you won’t be able to find a manual that will provide you with all the guidance you need to make the process smooth and easy. Do what feels right to you, read as many guides as you want and take the time you need, but do it with confidence and don’t compare yourself to others.
