The Anxiety of Raising a Child

Updated: Mar 12



Parenting is a process of modifying and raising a child until he or she reaches full development. Often, the word ‘parenting’ should be guided in well-mannered words and actions. In other words, raising a child in a terrible way does not look like parenting at all. Meanwhile, anxiety is a state of uneasiness, usually accompanied by compulsive behaviors or panic attacks. Anxiety usually occurs in times of unexpected disapproving situations, and it is truly horrible to see the word parenting and anxiety in the same sentence.


Going back from the question: Can parenting cause anxiety? The answer to that is a simple yes. Sometimes, you might get too blinded to the idea and excitement of bringing life in this world, that you forgot the reality of it. But what are the top reasons for causing anxiety concerning raising a child?

To begin with, let’s tackle unprepared and unwanted pregnancies. Most partners are startled about unplanned pregnancies. Some are delighted while some are just taking it as a dilemma—causing the couples to react negatively to the situation. Another reason why is that the couple is financially, mentally, emotionally, and physically incapable in both bearing and raising a child. In the same way, the couple has insufficient knowledge of how parenting should be done.


One of the best things you can do right now to stop the anxiety is to find the nearest parenting counseling and regularly attending it, for it is indeed beneficial to seek out help from professionals. Also, two heads are stronger than one, so do not hesitate to speak up your troubles to your partner; the two of you must be facing the challenge of parenting hand-in-hand.

Another way to stop the anxiety is to reach out to your friends, who are already raising a child on their own, and ask some word of advice about it. Additionally, seeking help from your very own parent is undoubtedly the most comforting way to ceasing anxiousness.

Lastly, if you are too busy taking care of your kid at home, which stops you from visiting your friends and relatives, it is most convenient to grab a book about children, so you know them better.



In 2013, Angela Arnephy published a book called “What Does My Baby Dream Of?” as she wonders in awe about what could be the things her baby dreams of every time they show a simple baby gesture during their sleep. In addition to that, the book has heart-warming graphics presenting the beauty of being a parent. This book will instantly wipe your anxiety away in terms of raising your child and help you look at the brighter side of parenting. Truly, facing the life of parenthood is like a two-faced coin: there’s always con and pros. With this in mind, it’s essential to have extensive preparation in raising a child because parenthood does not end in releasing the child from the womb. Instead, the journey as a parent starts from that very moment.

Remarkable and unforgettable reading experience from the incredible writers around the globe.
