Have you ever looked at your children and wondered, “Am I doing this parenting thing right?” You are not alone, we have all had those moments. I remember being a new mom in North Carolina, no family within 400+ miles, when my daughter was born. I was extremely confident. I read all the parenting books, new mommy books, I had this.
When she was about three weeks old, I looked at her sleeping in her bounce chair on the couch and had a complete breakdown. I looked at this little sleeping angel and realized, I am responsible for this little person for the rest of my life. It scared the hell out of me.
Let’s be real. We’re raising the next generation. The generation that will one day run this country. Will one day vote for our leaders, may even be our leaders. We’re raising the next teen idol, Hollywood heart-throb, the next Miss America, Babe Ruth, or Steve Jobs. It’s a tough job, and those little ones don’t come with an instruction manual. Trust me, I’ve checked every nook, cranny and orifice of my kids trying to find it. It doesn’t exist.
