First time parent advice

What is one this you wish someone would have told you about becoming a parent?

We have all heard the sleep while your babies sleeping type of advice, but whats something someone didn’t tell you that you wish you knew (any stage of parenting)?

“Everything is made up and the points don’t matter” jk :sweat_smile: the fact that EVERYTHING is a guessing game. You could plan one thing but that doesn’t guarantee your kid will like it or go along with it

There will be times when you feel as though nothing you do is right… that’s been the hardest part for me (aside from the lack of sleep and being isolated during the pandemic with no way to get a break).

One of the best pieces of advice I have ever gotten is for older kiddos and I have only ever heard it once.

Dont give your time child a “be home by” curfew. Give them a “leave by” curfew. Some of the worst decisions a kid can make is when they are trying to rush around after leaving to late.
