When you’re a parent, life can be hectic, fun, full of love, full of frustration and an adventure every day. Parenting is the hardest, and most enjoyable, job you will ever undertake. There are all kinds of emotions and feelings attached to parenting. The following are a few fun parenting quotes to help you through the journey, find some humor in it, and capture how you feel in words:
Quotes that defines parenting: Parenting is a journey, and it is going to be different for each person, as well as for each child. A mom with three children can attest to the fact that she raises her children three different ways, and a mom with ten will use ten different ways. It is never easy to really define what it means to be a parent, but the following quotes help.
Parenthood: The state of being better chaperoned than you were before marriage.
— Marcelene Cox
Parents can tell but never teach, unless they practice what they preach.
— Arnold Glasow

Eleanor Graham Vance
Quotes that show the love of a parent: When you are a parent you are going to experience a gamut of emotions about your children. You will love them one second, and you will hate them the next. You will think they are the most annoying things in the world, and the most precious. Love is the main ingredient when it comes to parenting, and the following helps define that love just a little.

Quotes that show the irony and humor of parenting: While parenting is never very easy, it is almost always humorous, at least if you can step back and see the irony of loving someone so much and them “hating” you in return, or wanting so much for your child to learn and grow, but wishing they would just sit and watch a movie too. Parenting is a laugh, and a heartache, but there is always humor to be found, and here are some quotes that capture that.
