Dear Doc Mommas and Papas,
I stumbled upon this really interesting blog about a woman’s eternal quest to achieve her “Ph.D in Parenting”. Parenting is indeed a lifelong learning process and while we’re not being graded (oh wait, our perfectionist selves does that), we feel like we’re constantly preparing for the greatest defense of our lives (e.g child rearing, starting a new milestone, etc.). The author of Ph.D. in Parenting shares with us her journey of questioning and seeking answers in finding out our own unique ways of parenting and being in a truly authentic and loving relationship with our children and families. I hope you find this blog inspirational as you go through this journey of parenting while doing your doctorate. And just to let you know, you are doing AN AWESOME JOB!!! We may struggle to find that delicate and perhaps elusive “balance” that we so seek, but we remain steadfast in our commitment to have a healthy and happy family life, while fulfilling a meaningful academic career. Here’s to us, as we journey together as co-parents. Cheers!
