5 Reasons to Stop the Comparison Game

Cara faith thoughts, Parenting 1 Comment

Parenting isn’t for the faint of heart. It’s hard enough to mother in a generation where there are more how-to books than any one person could read. And each has a different strategy, a different technique, a different this-is-the-way-you-must-mother-or-you-have-epically-failed. Yet this ignores several important elements. 1) Each child is completely different. I have certainly seen this played out in my …

I read a ton of fiction. I inhale novels. By July, I’d read something like sixty according to the list I keep on Goodreads.
