Raising a Family Can Be a Hair-Raising Experience

Aug 18, 2007
Raising a family is not an easy job at all. Be aware that this is not going to be easy. Raising a family is not all about happy memories, photo albums, and TV dinners. There are also the many tears, illnesses, school problems, and expenses that you will have to be ready for.

Sure, it is great to become a parent. In my opinion, every individual should have a baby at least once in his or her life. It surely is an experience that makes one feel complete. Parenthood makes you feel fulfilled, happy, and complete. However, having said that, I have to remind you that being a parent is a full-time job. It is not something that you can try to fool around with.

From the moment that your child is born you have to do your best to take care of your duties. That little baby in your arms may seem tiny, but (s)he may be more than a handful. Are you sure that you are ready to deal with nights of colic? Are you ready to let your baby hamper your current social life?

Then again, your little baby will soon transform into a little girl/boy and make life quite wretched for you with her/his constant demands and frequent fights. If all that seems very highly unattractive, you need to rethink your decision to have a family. Make it a point to first think thoroughly about all the cons that are involved as you go about starting a family of your own.

Also, it is not just about mental preparedness. Are you blessed with the financial wherewithal to have a child? Baby food costs. Vaccinations may not always come free. Those visits to the doctor are bound to make you feel the pinch. And later, sending your child to school, and still later, to college, may be very expensive propositions. Will your financial situation permit such excesses? Will you be able to take care of the basic costs that come with raising a child?

If you think that you can cope up with all of these issues, maybe you should make a go for it. However, if at a later time you have difficulty in tackling the costs, do not start panicking. You could always look out for personal loans to suit your needs. If you own property, you should try out a secured loan. If you don't, you could look at some unsecured loans. Just prepare yourself to deal with all sorts of future emergencies.
