The most difficult job you will ever love
If you are here searching for support in your role as a parent, please read this part carefully:
You are a good person and you have helpful parenting instincts.
As with many important things in life, no one tells us ahead of time how gut-wrenching and soul-crushing the job of raising another human person can be. There are a million How To books but in fact, there is no easily digestible, one-size-fits-all manual.
With all this in mind, we want to assure you that you are not alone, there are answers to be found, support to be enjoyed, and we welcome you to Pono Roots.
