After analyzing (almost) all of the parenting advice and stats out there, we’ve come to one definite conclusion:
No matter what you do in life, you are going to eff up your kids.
It seems that there will always be an opinion about how you choose to parent. One person (family member, friend, parenting expert, random person on the street, some researcher who has conducted some study) will tell you it’s the right way to do something, but someone else (insert same list of people here) is going to tell you it’s the wrong way.
Sleep train your baby because they need 12 hours of sleep, but don’t sleep train your baby because it’s going to give them anxiety and separation problems.
Let your kids be bored because it will allow them to take initiative and develop their creativity and imagination. But don’t let them get too bored because then they’ll get into drugs, naturally.
Make sure you go back to work because you need to set a good example of an independent woman who can take care of herself, but also stay home because your kids need their mom…
The list of do’s and don’ts goes on and on and on. And on. And we’ve realized that you’re damned if you do, and you’re damned if you don’t.
But we’ve also realized that it doesn’t matter what anyone else thinks! As long as we’re all doing what we think is best for our kids and our family then that is enough. We are doing a good job!!
