Ive decided to share a favorite podcast of mine. This podcast helps remind me to take it easy on myself. Guilt is a feeling that, as parents, we feel far too often. But perhaps little by little we can remind ourselves that we ARE doing the best we can and that is exactly enough for our children. It also speaks of something right in line with Waldorf philosophy: “A large part of who our children will become is based on WHO we are vs. WHAT we do.”
So I encourage you to listen with an open mind and perhaps try to take from this that you can take confidence in the fact that you most likely will raise your children to be great adults and productive members of society. Have patience and take it easy on yourself. Parenting is hard work. :)
