Every human is distinct from another with some being very responsible and caring and some the total opposite. We all value and prioritise things the way we like, some preferring family time while some giving preference to socialising. Parenting is the phase which changes the priorities and activities for all of us, preferably females. The feeling of having a little piece of you to care for, nurture and grow in the best way gives precedence to the child above everything.
The feeling of immense love, care and compassion for the little one shows us the value of parents, what they felt for us when we were babies and why they value and care for us the most. A person starts loving their relations much more. Most parents are extremely sensitive for their little ones and develop feelings of fear and worry for the child. Slowly progressive this makes a person more caring and thoughtful for things they do. They value themselves and keep them safe for their child being more responsible and thoughtful of whatever they do.
New parents have to cope with certain things to manage well with their newborn, spending long hours, staying awake at nights, sacrificing their own needs, activities, self-care and dealing with frustrations. Enduring all these establishes patience within a person to cope with things well.
Early parenting years are tough for everyone and the ones who undergo this well and manage things properly attain self-confidence in themselves which strengthens them to move forward. A child also makes the parent stronger, being with them beats their loneliness and gives them a reason to live for.
The little beings each new activity cherishes everyone around them and brightens their moods. A person is no longer lonely because of negative thoughts and is always occupied by the child’s chores or to play with them.
Gain more knowledge
A parent always struggles to give their child the best of everything. They nurture and make them grow well. Raising them a parent inquires about best things for child care, baby food recipes, sleep times, eating times, then on growing up telling them about the world, answering their questions the parent researches and inquires about everything and gains knowledge about them all.
Feeling of Unconditioned and true love
A child recognises their parents from a bunch of people even when they are a baby. They sense the lap and arms of their mother and feel the compassion within. On growing old, they get most attached to the parent and give them the most love and importance. It delights the parents, giving them the matchless feeling of pure and natural love.

A child coming into a person’s life has the most vital impact that affects their relationship with the closest people around them.
Family from couple
The relationship between spouses is affected as the couple now becomes a family, both of them have a new meaning of life, a new world with their child. Their preferences change with everything initiating from the child. Giving time to the child makes them have less time for each other which might lack in some things but also gives the happiness of family life and strengthens their bond as the couple avoids all quarrels and ill thoughts and feelings for the sake of their child.
Importance of parents
Becoming a parent tells us the true value of our parents, how our mothers struggled to give us birth and nurture us and how our fathers worked hard to fulfils our needs. We realise their efforts and sacrifices for us after becoming parents ourselves and truly value and love them more for what they do for us and how well they are bonded to our child.
Life of parents and family people is often observed much differently to singles or couples. Growth in responsibilities make us think and behave differently in life
To manage multiple duties, routine and sleep timings change as more time is required for all work so things should be managed accordingly. Usually the night owls change to be morning persons to complete all their duties on time and give their child a healthy lifestyle.
Nurturing well for their child people often change their diets also, more for the lactating mothers who avoid spices and unhealthy foods to protect their child. This develops into a habit of eating well for themselves also.
The couple changing to family has more responsibilities and expenses, people develop a habit of saving for a better living and brighter future for their family.
