20 Inspirational Quotes for New Parents

Parenthood is one of the biggest blessings bestowed upon mankind by the Creator. The tinkling laughter, adorable mischief and wobbly tiny footsteps of kids are what make a home a home, and make this drab life worth living. But don’t be fooled: raising a child is a daunting task, even greater–and far more difficult–than slaying a dragon! Children demand attention and care 24/7, and neglect is absolutely NOT an option!

The task is especially hard for new parents who find it almost impossible to come to terms with sleepless nights, tired body, exhausted mind and, not to forget, a cluttered house. But mind it, all new parents out there: you need to stay optimistic and hope for better days to come! Here are a few inspirational quotes for new parents for a head start in a new phase of life:
