Readers Respond: One Thing I Refuse to Feel Guilty About as a Parent is …

By Devan McGuinness |

Parent guilt, mommy guilt — I am sure we all have it at one point (or a few million points) during our child-raising times. It’s a hard one to swallow because we all feel so strongly about wanting the best for our kids and that guilt can have us second guessing decisions and actions at times. Also hard because there is no ‘how the heck am I supposed to do this’ parenting book out there that would answer everyone’s questions.

Everyone parents different — that’s what makes the world fun. Near all of us just do what we think is best for our kids — guilt-free or guilt-ridden — it’s usually out of love.

We all hear the great things that people do with their kids — it’s not often someone will speak up and tell us how they parent guilt-free … even if it clashes with what we *think* we are supposed to do.  Babble asked our readers to finish this sentence “The one thing I refuse to feel guilty about as a parent is _______________.”
