Help me build parenting confidence

Postby rlarson on Tue Jul 12, 2016 10:36 am

still not feeling the self-confidence I hoped I'd have by now; looking for anecdotes. how do I not feel like a !@#$% parent all the time? I'm NOT looking for parenting advice, because it's precisely that advice that sends me into a self-doubting tailspin. I want to know how to feel confident and natural as a parent instead of riddled with anxiety, self doubt and impatience. I want to feel like I know my kid and what I do is "good enough" mothering. Then I want to let. it. go.
