Mommy Lesson 31 - I'm Not Done Learning
The truth is that without God, I have no clue what I am doing. Every day I face challenges while raising my kids that remind me, I don’t know what I am doing and unless I am constantly seeking God. Every kid is different and for the most part, no book will be able to tell you what to do. Yes the books have good ideas but none of them will fit every child all the time. I have also learned that the best books are written by parents who have already raised their kids and their kids are proof that how they were parented worked. The books written by those who haven’t raised several kids but are written by “trained professionals” are only good for lining the litter box. One cannot be a parenting expert unless they have been a parent and it helps if they have parented more than one child so they can realize that every child responds differently.
