Being a parent, that is.
It’s not always hard. And it’s beautiful, if you take the process of parenting as a whole.
My sense is that if you ever feel a little useless at it, then that means you give a crap, and you’re probably doing a lot more right than you realize.
That said, it’s never a bad thing to phone a friend or ask an older mentor to help sift through some of the bits of turmoil here and there.
We’re not born into being perfect parents. Just like our parents weren’t perfect.
It takes work. It’s hard work. It’s good work, though.
Those little guys and girls are worth it.
