My parenting skill is far from expert. Asking me for advice on raising children is like asking my toddler to balance a checkbook. I can fumble around for answers but it will quickly become clear that I am clueless.
I have been asked for advice on everything from breastfeeding, to sleep schedules, to basic behavioral issues. The best I can do is fully admit everything I have tried, what ultimately failed, and what worked out.
The only parenting evolution I have experienced is developing the understanding that I will always have shortcomings. I can better serve as a cautionary tale, than any form of parenting idol.
My kids are healthy and happy, but that is more luck than skill. I figure at this point my current level of “flying by the seat of my pants” has worked so I might as well keep at it. Now, if you want advice on wine or food, we should talk.
