Sometimes I wonder if I'm doing this parenting thing right. Sometimes I think everyone should be required to take parenting classes while they're raising their kids. (That's going a little too far though.)
When my 3 year old is screaming at me and saying things like "what the hell is going on here?", I wonder.
I wonder if I let them watch too much tv.
I wonder if I let them have too much candy.
I wonder if I don't pay enough attention to them.
But then I realize that there are actually terrible people out there. There are people who lock their kids in closets. There are people who abuse their kids, physically and mentally.
There are kids out there who've been kidnapped, or worse.
I asked Hunter "who loves you Hunter?" and he said "Mommy and Daddy love me".
That's all I need to hear. (I will still wonder now and then, but I know as long as my kids know they're loved unconditionally I think they should be ok.)
(can you tell I recently spent a few too many hours watching Lifetime movies?)
Plus, I take my kids to the park once in a while.
