The Parenting Obstacle Course

No items found.

Reminder that what you are navigating in your parenting journey is not the same as anyone else.

Do the best you can, seek all the support available to you, and be compassionate with yourself in the process.

What you need and what your particular kids need is your focus. Not the haters. Not the parents on pedestals who seem to do nothing wrong, just you and your brood doing the best you can to get thru the obstacles on your course.

Sending love to all of you as you navigate some gnarly stuff and still somehow keep focused on loving those incredible littles of yours.
