Both parents should assume equal responsibility in raising a child children.

by Yvanna Yunez
Despise all your friends and relatives, your family should be the pillar of your success.
There are many thoughts about, who’s in charge of the success of others and the answer could be: You are your own success, BUT that besides all, think about your childhood, ¿who were the people that support you and guide you to the right path? The answers are two words that in the dictionary could have a common meaning but in your heart should mean everything, MOM and DAD; they are your family, your guides, and your inspirations as some people call them. They are the ones that besides all your mistakes NEVER will let you down, they who after every fall will help you getting up, those who say we are here when no one is, your parents are part of your consciousness that few ever see or appreciate, they are the reason that you have to succeed in your life, you might think that success can be for yourself, but thanks to your parents you were there to achieve that success.
The parent's place in the life of a boy is impressively important, not only for children but for parents themselves, ¿why? When a parent takes on the responsibility of love the child, make it part of your life completely, is when that parent truly deserves a child.
Each parent have a role to perform, likely the mother should take care of the child for the first months and the father should support her, they are chefs of a good meal, because they form, make and prepared the child to the world.
In this time there exist few families that aren’t complete, as they when it involve the marriage, is better to be secure of the feelings, but some parents that are divorced think that passing money or seeing his or her kid once in a month is enough, well a kid NEED both parents in his life, cause is always needed a man advice or a woman advice sometime. I will add a personal experience to support the responsibility of both parents on a child’s life.
-Ten years ago my mom and my dad got divorced, we used to travel together, get out together and do everything like a family, my mom is a great chef and my dad an expert eating her food, I thought everything was okay between the two, but after all nothing is what it seems. After the divorce I was shocked, it was a important and influential event on my life, I thought that my dad didn’t love me and neither my mom and I started to get bad grades and getting sad all day. A afternoon my mom and my dad were seating on the living room talking like nothing happened and I desperately ran to see what was happening, in the end they told me that they are best friends, that they are better like that, my dad explain me, that before I was given to birth, he didn’t like kids, he was kidaholic, but everything change when my mom was pregnant, when he saw me the first time he was amazed, he loved me since he read to my mom’s belly. He repeatedly told me that I was the most important person for him on earth, that he will never let me down and will always support me no matter what happened, my mom was smiling, I thought that she was faking but when my dad left she told me: you are the reason your dad and I are best friends, we have a lot things in common but you are the most important, and having you happy makes us happy. Those words change my life forever,
After explaining this short story, you should see the importance and the influence that a parent is for a child.

I certainly agree with this statement. My husband and I have been parents for the last 23 years. At first, everything was in my hands but as time goes by we complemented each other. We saw what the weakness and strengths we had and had to fulfill those gaps to raise our children the best way we could.

The new husbands tries to help ,but their mom lets them do and say what they want. Their both good friends of my they asked me what to
do. I told them they should go talk to someone who could help them. But it would dout help if both parents did the same plus lots of love and pray
