Day 13: Parenting Moment You Regret . . .

Day 13:  Parenting Moment You Regret

I don't know that there's really ONE moment that I regret.  I'm not saying I'm a parent without fault, Lord knows I've made a TON of mistakes, but I don't really think I REGRET any of them.  They've all been learning experiences.  Have there been things I wish hadn't happened?  Or that I wouldn't have said or done?  Sure.  We all have those instances.  But there's not a handbook when it comes to being a parent.  It's all trial and error.  And because each child is different, you have to handle every situation differently.  So you can't even handle them the same with each child.  We ALL make mistakes.  But in my opinion, the only TRUE mistakes are the ones we don't learn from.  I WISH I was one of those parents that did everything right all the time and always knew WHAT to say and WHEN to say it.  But I'm not.  And I'm okay with that.  No one's perfect.  But I'll keep trying to be the best parent I can be.  Because my kids are AMAZING, and they deserve that.  And more.

there is always something to feel bad about and regret, but if you learn from it that is all that matters
