This parenting thing is one big unknown.
This parenting thing. It’s one big unknown. We wing every single day. Not one of us knows if what we are doing is the right thing.
We go with our instincts and sometimes we get it right, sometimes we don’t and sometimes we just plain don’t know which end of that spectrum we fall into.
Each one of us parents differently. Each one of us makes different decisions each day for our kids. Each one of us passes down different ideas and ideals to our family. Each one of us has our own style and despite these differences we remain the same in that we love our babes from the depths of our souls, just want what is best for them and for them to be happy.
I think this parenting gig is hard enough and we shouldn’t compound it with criticism and comments about what we “should” be doing. Not one of us has this thing down to a science.
For any parent that is questioning themselves please know you are truly doing amazing and no matter what your children adore you and your way is the right way. Less judgement and more love.
