Did you know that laughter can help parents manage stress even before stressful situations happen? The ability to find parent humor simply makes your parenting load lighter. It is the one ingredient that will help you go through difficult times.
Parenting can be the most rewarding and the most challenging task of all! Many parents go through loving, silly, and frustrating moments every day.
