How being a parent is like being a superhero
Like Batman and Ironman, parents always have something up their sleeves, carrying tools of the trade when it comes to parenting.
Extra t-shirt? Check! Comfort plushie for a fussy baby? Check! Medication for allergy? Check! They're always to the rescue and could the day.
Most importantly, like any superhero, you can count on your parents almost 24/7. Despite the many battles they face every day, from lack of sleep, constant cleaning, to mind games when thinking of the ulam for the day, they remain strong for their children.
This was the inspiration when Smart Parenting's art team designed a Facebook and Instagram filter. Consider it like the sorting hat in Harry Potter, but instead of knowing which Hogwarts House you belong to, it will reveal your superpower as a parent!
