We parents would prefer to have a sure-proof parenting manual that would answer all of our questions in a straight forward manner. We want exact steps that we could follow as easy as a well-written formula or maybe we would even settle for a simple but effective recipe like one gets when baking a cake. We want a proven way to raise our kids.
Sadly, there are no perfect parenting books, and there isn't an ideal scientific formula that can answer our questions. Through much experimenting and support from others who are experienced, there are benefits to be gained that we might be able to measure and analyze like a scientist. However, crunching parenting data will always be imperfect.
As we explore the opposite side of the equation, the art of parenting, sometimes we find that side even messier. And all we can do is just stay calm, and breathe. That's right. Just breathe. Breathe because you deserve it. You are not alone. You do matter. And you are making a difference. No matter what our kids say, we really are the most important people in their lives, and believe it or not, they really are listening to us.
Instead of constantly worrying about our parenting prowess, let's just look for the simplicity in the complexity of parenting. Let's be okay with the unknown and creating something new and artistic through parenting. Let's learn how to dance on the edge. Heck, I say let's even learn how 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, doesn't it?
Now, as my Granddaddy always said, "Let's go learn, lead and lay the way to a better world for all of us." Let's know that parenting is kind of like a science and an art all mixed up in some delightful crazy and messy way for us to meander through in the best way we possibly can. And once again parents, thanks in advance for all that you do, and all that you will do...
