As a mom and as a farmer, I can draw many similarities between parenting and farming.
As a parent, you are no longer responsible for “just” yourself. You are responsible for another life (or multiple lives, when you have multiple kids). You’re not only responsible for feeding, bathing, and clothing your child; you are also responsible for teaching, explaining, demonstrating, and learning, among other responsibilities.
It’s similar with being a farmer.
