Am I A Good Enough Parent? Weighing Burnout vs. Guilt
And what makes a good parent, anyway? Parents, join the online conversation.
Mothers Day is Sunday, and moms will likely get flowers or a dinner out.
Some will simply appreciate the acknowledgement for a year's worth of changing diapers.
For others, the guilt will strike. "But I'm not one of THOSE mothers who bakes from scratch for the bake sale, pushes my kids to excel, cheers them at every game and makes sure they're registered for camp by February," they may say. "I'm lucky if they have clean socks."
But is that important? Or is it more important to be there for your kids on good days and bad days, modeling patience and forgiveness, and showing by example the value of laughter and love?
Whaddya say, parents? All are invited to scroll down to the comments and give us your thoughts.
