I don't pretend to know everything about parenting. Hell, most days I feel like I'm barely hanging on, by the tips of my fingers. What I do know is my kids. I know each of their personalities, strengths and weaknesses. I know the kind of adults I want to raise and I parent to support that.
So, the next time I don't ask for your input or advice...take that to mean that I don't want it. I appreciate your need to tell me everything I am doing wrong. I appreciate your need to point out every mistake I make. However, I don't really want to hear it. When I decide that a person with no kids or one child has invaluable parenting information that I must know...I'll seek you out.
