First let’s be real. Most times when you become a parent at a young age it is unplanned. Although that is not always the case, it is for a good portion of young parents.
Most people I run into do not want kids at a young age for a few reasons:
- It’s simply too early to have a child
- I want to live my life first
- Me and children don’t mix
- I don’t think I can do it
Well I’m here to tell you it’s not that bad with the right mindset.
In order to build confidence as a parent you have to at least know these 4 things I mention down below:
- Believe that you are good enough, your child does
- Allow yourself to fail, it builds character
- There is so such thing as a perfect parent
- Your child/children will love and admire you regardless
These things will allow you to be free from perfection when it comes to raising your kids. I suggest these 4 tips because it is what helped me as a parent, and to become a better one. However, if you have low self esteem that could also be a factor as to why you’re reading this article and feeling low about yourself and your abilities. If that’s you, I want you to read my previous article on “Signs That You May be Underestimating Yourself”.
Mistakes are proof that you are trying.Unknown
