Ask anyone, what are the top most stressful jobs an individual can have? I’m willing to bet that the majority of the people asked will agree that being a parent is without a doubt one of the hardest jobs you’ll have in life. Partly because there’s not definitive answer on how to parent. Furthermore, every child is different – so what works for one child may not necessarily work for another. This constant up and down of events can cause any parent, even the sanest ones, to be clouded with negative thoughts.
Parents are constantly asking themselves: Am I doing this right? What am I doing wrong? What can I do better? Are my children going to be okay? Will they hate me? Ultimately, I could go on and on with these endless questions. They can range from very extreme to very minuet. Either way, it’s not at all easy. The best thing parents can do is rid themselves of a handful of negative thoughts - here are the negative thoughts moms and dads should avoid at all costs.
