Here is some advice for the mom who worries too much about everything in parenting and raising children and wonders if she’s doing enough.
I have spent a lot of time worrying about my daughters.
I’ve worried about what they are eating, how well they are sleeping, if they are drinking enough or going to the bathroom enough. Have they made enough friends or are they hanging around good friends.
The list of nagging worries in the back of my mind seems endless at times.
As I look back over the years, I have been a big worrier. Likely no bigger than most but still I’ve put a lot of time in on worrying. And many of my clients in programs over the years have been worriers, too.
We simply care so much.
But, the truth is, when I look back at my worries I realize they all just really worked themselves out. I often didn’t need to DO anything — though I did — and the things I tried often didn’t change anything at all.
The tough situations just always worked themselves out.
Which brings me to this week’s parenting lesson in my series of 13 Lessons Learned in 13 Years of Parenting!
