Yes, Parents Can Navigate Today's World of Parenting with Confidence

6/6/24


Parenting today feels like a wild ride, filled with thrilling surprises and unexpected twists. The journey is tougher1 than ever, as parents juggle endless commitments, adapt to ever-changing standards, and navigate a world where technology is everywhere. Even the most seasoned parents can feel overwhelmed and pressured. Truly, “The struggle is real.”

It seems that this sentiment resonates globally. A 2021 study by Nestle2 highlighted this pressure as the biggest universal challenge new parents face. Sadly, despite being in a hyper-connected and almost always online world, many can feel this pressure intensely, alongside feelings of isolation and loneliness, as if they have no one to turn to. 

Adding to the burden – parents are confronted with overwhelming social pressure to raise their children in a certain way. Many report being bombarded with unsolicited advice, whether they welcome it or not, further adding to their stress and confusion.

On a related note, a study by Wakefield Research3 revealed another aspect that could be related to parents’ pressure: their concern about spending quality time with their kids due to their busy schedules and financial constraints. In this situation, parents are likely pressured to find ways to grow, enrich, and maximize their time and resources if they want to better support their kids’ development and well-being.

These challenges are ever-present and real, and it’s essential for parents to know they’re not alone. They need a guiding hand, a supportive presence to help them through each exciting stage of raising their kids. They need someone who understands their unique struggles, an ally who can assure them with confidence, “You’ve got this, Mom,” or, “You can do it, Dad.” They need someone who will reliably hold their hand, offering support exactly when and where they need it.

This is where parenTeam® comes in. parenTeam® is a digital platform created for today’s parents, built with heart and purpose, and launched by Wyeth Nutrition® and NestlĂ©® Nutrition.
