Being a parent is so fraught with pressure. I want my kids to have the best opportunities to grow their minds and bodies. But the fact is, with Crohn's eating up my energy, I can't get my kids into every program and activity that I would like.
I want them to take music lessons (need to check out Luna Guitars) , swimming lessons, play in a sport, try martial arts, and learn more about science and nature. I would like to give them the opportunity to go to Chess Club, robotics club, BoyScouts, and learn horseback riding.
The truth is that just a few of these are going to happen and alot of it is going to depend on what the kids ask the most for. I have to learn to do the best I can and try not to let the pressure get to me.
