How To Be Considerate New Parents
Do not bring baby or children to formal affairs, unless they are specifically invited to attend. They are, at the very least, a distraction. If they are normal, they will additionally be a disruption at some point over the course of a weekend, day, or multi-hour event. Hire a babysitter, or send your regrets. Do not take offense. Appreciate the invitation, and appreciate the blessing that it is to be a parent. Recognize that every rose has its thorns, and parenthood is no different. It is okay to miss a few things in life for the sake of being your child’s parent. Relish these young years. They are but a moment in time, and they are priceless.
