31 Motivational Parenting Quotes For Hard Times

Having a baby is lovely, for the most part, but there are times when it all feels too much and these quotes are for those times.

We have had one of ‘those’ days and that is what inspired me to do this post because I know I’m not the only one out there 😬

So this is for you, if you are having one of ‘those’ days when nothing seems to go right, just remember -everything is just a phase ❤

  • Don’t strive for perfection, strive for tranquility.
  • Don’t beat yourself up when you have a hard a hard day. Instead, pat yourself on the back and keep going.
  • If your child has a temper tantrum, count to ten and remember they are learning how to explain the way they’re feeling.
  • On the days when everything feels overwhelming, take a deep breath and remind yourself: you are doing the best you can with the resources you have. And that is enough.
  • Children act by example; so act by example, even on the hardest of days.
  • Your children need your presence more than your presents.
  • Ignoring a temper tantrum is like trying to avoid a tsunami that’s staring you in the face.
  • Parenting is about guiding, not controlling; supporting, not fixing; encouraging, not demanding. It’s about loving unconditionally through the ups and downs.
  • Don’t compare your child to others. There is no comparison between the sun and the moon. They shine when it’s their time.
  • Every tough moment in parenting is an opportunity for growth, for both you and your child. Embrace the challenges, for they make you stronger.
  • In the midst of chaos, find the calm. Your children are watching how you navigate through life’s storms.
  • Trying not to laugh when your child does something bad is sometimes one of the hardest things to do.
  • When little people are overwhelmed by big emotions, it’s our job to share our calm, not join their chaos.
  • There’s no such thing as a perfect parent, so just be a real one.
  • Even though tantrums are hard to handle, be happy your child feels secure enough to have one.
  • Be the parent today that you want your kids to remember tomorrow.
  • Being a parent involves a never-ending sequence of tasks that prevent you from focusing on anything else.
  • If you are stuck in a rut, choose one small thing and do it differently.
  • Children need love, especially when they do not deserve it.
  • When you feel like you’re failing, remember that even the strongest trees bend in the wind. Your resilience in the face of adversity is teaching your child invaluable lessons.
  • Our children expect us to be loving, not perfect.
  • I don’t know what’s more exhausting about parenting: the getting up early, or acting like you know what you’re doing.
  • Don’t let negative thoughts and self-doubt get in your way of being a good parent.
  • Hugs can do great amounts of good – especially for children.
  • Remember, it’s not about being the perfect parent, it’s about being a present parent. Your presence and love mean more to your child than anything else.
  • Parenting is the biggest sacrifice one can make. It’s putting your life on hold to fulfill the promise of your children’s tomorrow.
  • There is no way to be a perfect parent and a million ways to be a good one.
  • Having children is like living in a frat house: nobody sleeps, everything is broken and there’s a lot of throwing up.
  • As your kids grow up, they may forget what you said, but they won’t forget how you made them feel.
  • When in doubt, choose love. Love is the most powerful tool you have as a parent, and it has the ability to heal even the deepest wounds.
  • Children are exhausted until it’s bedtime; then they’re starving and haven’t eaten in days.
  • Being a parent is like being an around-the-clock teacher, but you don’t get paid.

I hope some of these have resonated with you and have been useful.
