We parents prefer to have a secure parenting manual that would answer all our questions in a straight forward way. We want precise steps that we can follow as easily as a well-written formula or maybe we even settle for a simple but effective recipe that you get when baking a cake. We want a proven way to raise our children.
Unfortunately, there are no perfect parenting books, and there is no ideal scientific formula that can answer our questions. Through much experimentation and support from others who are experienced, there are benefits that we can measure and analyze as a researcher. But crushing parental data is always incomplete.
When we explore the opposite side of the equation, the art of parenting, sometimes we think that side is even dirtier. And all we can do is just be calm and breathe. It is right. Just breathe. Breathe because you deserve it. You're not alone. You do the thing. And you make a difference. No matter what our children say, we are really the most important people in their lives and believe it or not, they really listen to us.
Instead of constantly worrying about our parenting skills, let's just look for the simplicity of the complexity of parenting. Let's be okay with the unknown and create something new and artistic through parenting. Let's learn how to dance on the edge. Heck, I say, let's even learn to dance in the rain on the edge again, like when we were kids. Dancing in the rain sounds better than waiting helplessly for the storm to pass, right?
As my grandfather always said, "Let's learn, lead and lead the way to a better world for all of us." Let us know that parenting is the same as a science and an art that is all mixed in in a wonderfully crazy and messy way for us to meander through in the best way we can. And again parents, thank you in advance for everything you do and everything you will do ...
