When it comes to parenting, we’re often very hard on ourselves. We frequently think we can do better and feel a lot of guilt for not trying harder.
There’s a lot of “what I could’ve, should’ve, would’ve done differently” in parenting.
The most important thing to help you be a better parent is to come back to the quality of your presence. Focusing on how you show up for your children, how you see them, and how you help them feel seen by you, is the best thing that you can do to be a better parent.
It’s not what you did, how you did it, and how fast you did it, it’s more about helping your kids feel seen, heard, and loved by you. The quality of your presence is what’s going to make or break any situation.
