While you might not have planned to become a parent at this point in your life, it does not mean you are not capable of being a wonderful and loving parent. Parenting a child is a big responsibility, but it can also be incredibly rewarding. Read on to learn more about parenting and if it is the right choice for you.
Am I ready to be a parent?
Before deciding that parenting is right for you, there are a few key considerations that you should process through. Here are a few questions you can ask yourself to guide you through this consideration process.
- Does my partner know and do they want to be involved?
- Who in my life can help support me?
- How will I financially support this child?
- What resources in my community are available to help me?
These are only a few of the questions to consider before making a decision to become a parent. At Turlock Pregnancy and Health Center, we are here to help ask you questions and work through your consideration journey.
