This is going to be fun!
I read a post on a Cup of Jo where she asked some of her friends for some of their best parenting advice.
So I thought, "HOW FUN!" and I asked some of my friends for their words of wisdom.
Here we go, first from Louisa.
-Trust your instincts. Parent the child you have in the way that you are, and don't lose any sleep worrying about what other people think is the one true way. Each child is different, and so is each parent.
-Make time for fun, and hugs, and loads of encouragement. And take photos as you go. That's the stuff those little people will remember when they're all grown up.
Will that do? ;-)
That will totally do - thank you!
I personally think some of Louisa's parenting superpowers are:
She keeps to her word and doesn't make idle threats.
She teaches N life skills that most people don't think about (like self-defence, and how to stand up to a bully)
She parents with the end in mind, always :)
Now, which are the parenting battles you choose to fight?
