Am I the only one messing up my kids?

I think every parent at some point or another thinks they’re doing a horrible job. Let’s be honest, there isn’t a manual. No amount of reading or learning will get you ready for the things that you’ll experience as a parent. Every time you think you’ve got your kids figured out, they throw you a curveball and enter a new “stage” of life.

If I looked back at the 9+ years that I’ve been a father and marked every moment I said the wrong thing, reacted poorly, wasn’t patient, gave the wrong advice, or talked when I should have listened with #parentingfail, it would be a trending topic on Twitter.

Just remember that you’re not the only parent who’s felt that way. Tomorrow’s successful doctors, lawyers, businessmen, entrepreneurs were raised by parents just like us!
