Is it just me, or is it stressful raising kids in today's environment? I feel so much pressure to get everything right, but feel like I often don't know the right answers because there is so much conflicting information out there. My pediatrician told me I just need to go with my instincts. Sorry, but my instincts seem pretty suckish. I don't like feeling like every little decision I make regarding my child, whether it's how much video games he plays, or how many Cheetos he eats, will ultimately determine my success as a parent, and the development of my child into a health adult.
I think my parents were primarily concerned about 2 things:
1- can she support herself as an adult and
2- can she do it without going to prison?
Why does our generation of parents feel the need to hold ourselves to such high standards?
