    Not everyone is ready to accept their parenthood.

    Is the sentence below correct?

    Re: Not everyone is ready to accept their parenthood.

    You need to end it with an appropriate punctuation mark.

    Re: Not everyone is ready to accept their parenthood.

    Would "assume parenthood" be better than "accept parenthood"?

    Who knows?

    It would be better if it were the intended meaning. Otherwise it's just different.

    So why didn't you end that sentence with a punctuation mark?
    A smiley cannot be used as a substitute for a full stop (period) in standard English.
