9 Parenting Questions I Wish I Had the Answer To

9 Parenting Questions I Wish I Had the Answer ToI have officially been “mom” for 7 years now and it’s gone by quicker than I thought it could. I have three babes who call me mommy and I have learned so much about life, myself and people in general since I became a parent.

There are times where I wish kids came with a little handbook. Something that outlines what you’re supposed to do when, or how to handle this or that and answering those puzzling questions you don’t think you will ever get the answer to. I have gotten used to trusting that instinct and going with my gut. I’ve also resolved myself to the fact that I won’t be perfect, won’t have all the answers and kids are strange.

There are some parenting questions I don’t know the answer to and not sure I ever will figure it out. Some are more practical things I need answers to and others are the mysteries of kids that I just can’t figure out.

Click through for 9 questions I have about parenting that I don’t know the answer to:
