The PQ Mentoring Support Network
The Parent Quest is a parent-to-parent mentoring program, which supports all parents through the obstacles of parenthood by providing one-on-one support via email, phone, or text. Many challenges arise the moment a decision has been made to bring a child into this world. Whether you are trying to become a parent, are a single parent, are a married parent, are an adoptive parent, are a foster parent, or a parent who has experienced a loss you deserve to feel supported.
Parents need to feel a sense of community and togetherness, especially during the trying times of conception and early parenthood. Many couples face months, if not years, of infertility. This sometimes causes unanticipated feelings, frustrations, and resentment which can often lead to depression and a loss of hope for ever becoming a parent. By having a mentor, these negative thoughts can be alleviated by feeling a sense of normalcy among others who have experienced a similar journey.
The first year of a child’s life can be extremely challenging. Every year after can bring more trials and tribulations due to the rapid rate of developmental growth of a child. Parenting isn’t an exact science and is more like a science experiment. Parenting become easier when you have others who are familiar with your situation helping you through it. Having a mentor to provide you with a listening ear, advice, and resources will ease the difficulties you will face throughout the coming months.
