    I regret not accepting help when I needed it. Or recognizing the fact that I needed help. I insisted I was perfect and could handle it, in fact I couldn't do it all on my own. This resulted into a breakdown.

  • Jessica says:

  • Victoria says:
    No regrets at all... I love my life now, I have grown up and learned a lot about things...

  • Laura says:
    of course, but I've grown from them and hope to teach my daughter to grow from hers also.

  • Jean says:
    you can't be your child's friend, you have to be a role model

  • Kate says:
    accidently teaching the kids bad habits, that you don't realize till it is too late. Like getting them a lollie or toy every time you go to the shop. I was never going to do this and yet it happened. oops

  • Dominique says:
    I've learned that if you think there is something wrong with your child then there proberly is. You know them better than anyone and if you have to shout loud to be listened to then do it!!

  • Mary says:
    If I could do this again, I would have made a life for myself and saved a lot of money before having children

  • melissa says:
    I regret not going to college when I had the chance 4 years ago. One mistake that I wish I could change was staying with my ex just because we had kids together. If we hadn't stayed together for as long as we did I wouldn't have hated him so much.

  • Ashley says:
    yes, im waiting until im married for the next one

  • Amanda says:
    i regret working nightshift. i have worked nights almost all thier lives and have missed so much. if i could go back and do it again i would have worked days so i could have more time with my kids.

  • Mel says:
    no regrets! every 1 makes mistakes but u learn from them so i wouldn't call them mistakes!

  • Alice says:
    Hard learning - you can't keep them in a bubble. It is human (or parent) instinct to protect them from harm. Something they are their own "harm". No matter how much love you surround them with, they will make mistakes that you will make you crazy because you know you taught them better. To let go of some of that, love them anyway, and move on.

  • Kaylia says:

  • Michelle says:
    I only wish that I'd spent some of my time before I became a mom doing things to prepare myself. I wish I had been a Christian before I became a mom. I wish I had learned how to take care of a house and learned self-discipline and responsibility when I was a kid/teenager. And I wish Mark and I had gotten married before we had kids. Notice that I don't wish I started having kids later so I could do those things -- I'm very happy having started out young (I was 20).

  • Patricia says:
    No regrets but I have definitely learned from my mistakes.

  • Emma says:
    Ask for help when you need it not when it has all gone too far. Trusting myself when I knew somthing but talked myself out of it

  • Carie says:

  • DESIREE says:

  • Marie says:
    thinkin the dad will stick around, remember to make choices that u can cope with even if ur on ur own. regrets that my eldest son saw me go through a really rough time.

    No regrets. Mistakes, none. when a first time parent, there are no mistakes, just misunderstanding and under estimation.

  • Amelia says:
    I figure there is no reason to regret anything as long as long as you do the right thing in the long run. You may wish you could change something but there is no need in dwelling on it if you can't

  • Lisa says:
    Nathan is in no way a mistake, he is wonderful & wouldn't trade him for anything, but USE BIRTHCONTROL - even old people get pregnant. There's no such thing as it won't happen to me.

  • Wyona says:
    no, other than the span between my boys.... it is too far apart, but they do get along great always have...

  • crystal says:
    Plenty of mistakes i have learned from, but no regrets. I would never regret becoming a mother.

  • Cassie says:
    This is the one regret that I have. I got my tubes tied when I delivered Bryar and that was a decision I made while being pregnant. I learned that you should not make life changing decisions when you are hormonal and wait atleast 6 months after your baby is born to do so!!

  • Amber says:
    no, I've done my best. I've learned that I can't always be in control...sometimes you have to ask for help..

  • Leslie says:
    Read 15. I wish I had taken the extra time that I have with my grandkids!

  • Jodie says:

  • Jamie says:
    Awlays keep an emergency diaper bag in the car....

    I don't believe in spankings. I tried it with my first, and It broke my heart.

  • carla says:
    yeap...dont trust SOMC

  • Johanna says:
    Ummm yea, USE A CONDOM!! haha Here's a good quote, "Babies aren't the mistakes, parents are." I love it. Chase was definately not a mistake but Bear and I don't complain about being young parents b/c it could have easily been avoided. But like I said earlier, Chase is the center of our universe and I wouldn't change one darn thing. =)

  • Shanna says:
    I can't regret anything because it put me where I am today and I love where I am

  • Adriana says:
    If you let them get away with it once make sure you are ready to let it happen again because thats all it takes! NOT ONCE!

    i should never have become a short order cook, I have a picky eater and now have to make them seperate dinners because i feel bad if they don't "like" what i make for dinner. I have issues about them going to bed hungry!

    no regrets but I believe mistakes are apart of learning

    -Wish I had saved up much more money! -Wish I would have researched breastfeeding a little more. -Wish I would have finished Jacob's room before he was born! -Wish I knew how to just ignore peoples nasty opinions Most importantly, I just wished I knew what I was in for.

  • Dawn says:
    Just the times when I second guess myself and follow someone's advice against what my instincts are telling me.

  • Yvonne says:

  • Sharon says:

    Don't expect your newborn to immediately make you feel like a "Mom." It takes time, and often you'll feel like you don't know what you are doing which is all perfectly normal.

  • Billie says:
    No child comes with a handbook and your first one is very scary and exciting. I don't know what I would of done without my mom for help and suppot. I can't say it gets any easier with the next one either. Each child is different than the one before and you learn and make mistakes with each one of them. Even though mine are grown I have a grandson who lives with me and it took me the LONGESTS time to remember to put his winky down when changing his diaper...lol. You don't know how many outfits I've gone through in one days time!!

  • Annette says:
    Lots of regrets and mistakes, but I learned from them all.

  • Heather says:

  • Shannon says:
    No regrets! Sure, any mom is going to have mistakes that they learn and grow from.

  • Becky says:
    Make sure the house is child-proofed. Just because you think it is..doesn't mean it really is. Kids find things you forget about so make sure you check throughly. And kids find a way to break those child locks..so choose wisely before buying.

  • Karyn says:
    mistakes.. alot! regrets none

  • Jennifer says:
    not really

  • Erin says:
    no regrets

  • Rachael says:
    Yes... i should not have left the hospital, when Tyler was sick because then he would have had Easter at home instead of in hospital

  • stacey says:
    Don't let other people push you into things that you don't want for your kids.

  • Erin says:
    Listen to what everyone has to say but do things your own way, so that you can fix it your way.

  • Jenny says:
    no regrets

  • Angel says:

  • Brittany says:

  • Jean says:
    I regret having so many kids in such a short time frame. I think they get denied a lot of one on one time that they deserve, I'm so busy with just the daily maintenace of 4 kids. I have learned that housework can wait and to just sit down and read a book or play with my kids.

  • Paula says:
    Getting married so young to somone who never grew up.

  • Jennifer says:
    Not worrying so much about development and "something" being wrong. I missed out on a lot of Kamryn's baby stuff worrying about her!

  • Carly says:
    I regret not asking for help more often and taking more time for myself. Every mom should have something that helps her relax and reenergize.

  • Kristin says:
    be smarter with money

  • Amanda says:
    dont try hold ur child back, it only makes for unhappy children AND parents!

  • Karrin says:
    you learn every day and sometimes you have to say sorry for som mistakes you have made with them...

  • Courtney says:
    I wanted Brady to get to the "next step" and got frustrated when he seemed behind his peers. I wish I wouldn't have compared him at all. I am completely different with Lexi - I don't want her to grow up!

  • Michelle says:

  • Amy says:
    I wish I would have grown up alot faster. I was a very young mom and even though I loved my kids I still wanted to party. But for the most part I have no regrets. I wouldnt be were Im at now if I never made those "mistakes"

  • Kimberly says:

  • Hayley says:

  • Kayla-Marie says:
    dont we all

  • Lisa says:

  • Kari says:

  • Chrissy says:
    No regrets, always learning.

  • Gemma says:
    To get married before having anymore!

  • Nicola says:

  • Megan says:
    Not believing I was really pregnant from the get go! And not telling family right away. I missed all the fun excitement in the first half of my pregnancy because I was still in shock I think!

  • Lisa says:

  • Alisha says:
    I never regret any thing I do... Life is a lesson and all that goes on in it is there for you to learn from.

  • Elisha says:
    Many...trying to mend many now

  • Shawna says:
    Well...no not really. maybe not to of had kids so young, but at least ill still be young when they are old enough to watch themselves! i wouldnt want to start now, thats for sure! cause im just that far ahead of the game!

  • Robyn says:
    Yes but I'd rather not talk about it, the people that know are the only people that need to know, and I'm sure they know what I'm talking about

  • Kristin says:

  • Jacqueline says:
    Nothing, being a parent was and is a great adventure and I wouldn't have missed it for the world.

  • Hannah says:
    many mistakes i have learned from but no regrets...

  • Heidi says:
    realizing that at the beginning with my first child I got worked up about things that didnt really matter

  • Stephanie says:
    No regrets, but mistakes learned and mistakes changed

  • Amanda says:
    We all will have those! We try not to tally them up though. We take those as lessons learned and them move on with new knowledge. We like to focus on the positives in life and parenting, and not focus on the negative things. And for that we are happier people and a happier family.

  • Gemma says:
    letting millie get her own way she can b a buggar if ya say no

  • Linda says:

  • julie says:
    No regrets only lessons learned

  • Tashala says:
    Wished I would of watched what I ate and worked out during my first prego. Wouldnt gain so much weight.

  • Kelly says:
    letting them sleep in our bed

  • Mariah says:
    The biggest mistake I have made as a mom so far is being too worried about messes. I didn't let Noah play with Playdoh or paint for along time. I have learned that messes clean up, and those smiles are worth a million messes.

  • darla says:
    Absolutely no regrets.... and I'm sure a ton of mistakes but I still wouldn't change too many things :)

  • Laura says:
    absolutely nothing!

  • naza says:
    Yeah...Do not trust people too much.you will end up feeling heart-breaking.

  • Jolene says:
    Regrets...no. Mistakes...yes, but those occur daily and are too numerous to list. As I said in #15 no mom is perfect. So I dont try to be, I just try to be the best Mom I can.

  • Kerry says:
    I learn how to deal with a certain situation next time if something goes wrong etc.

  • Katie says:
    Way too many to list. One big one is listen to your kids. They need to know that their feelings and ideas are heard. They need to know you care and you'll be there no matter what.

  • Marta says:

  • Katie says:
    Many, but the past is the past and you have to just move forward to better yourself.

  • patsy says:
    nope and plenty of mistakes learned

  • Jenny says:
    not yet

  • Crystal says:

  • Kirsty says:

  • Alyssa says:

  • Stefanie says:
    Oh lots of learning :)

  • Tiffany says:

  • Kym says:
    waited a little longer ( i was 21)

  • Megan says:
    I would never take them back however I would have waited for them. And also I would have enjoyed them being little more.

  • Nohblee says:
    once left gate open when Axel was out, i was right there and he still managed to narrowly miss being hit by a car. I also didnt realise Axel had a sensitivity to cows milk and dairy until he was 9 months old, i assumed he was screaming cause he was colicy or was a "bad baby" and that some kids are like that

  • Rachel says:
    Don't put babies to sleep during day without there nappies on, regardless if they have a nappy rash!!

  • Karen says:
    Should have got the remi PCA when they said no epidura!!! what was I thinking!?!?!?

  • Janice says:
    I regret not being able to stay married to their father

  • Emily says:
    Regrets,none! Mistakes..ive made plenty. Learned alot & still learnin everyday.

  • Britney says:
    WIsh I would have done college before havig kids cause its hard now but I am managing.

  • Susan says:
    Don't try to do everything yourself, accept or ask for help

  • Sara says:
    regrets No mistakes tons too many to say

  • Christina says:
    I leanred not to trust hospitals to be clean, safe places full of competent people. Having Nolan at home with a midwife after the terrifying experience of having Elise in the hospital was the best decision I've ever made in my life.

  • Melissa says:
    I dont regret anything that happens in my life.. just lessons learned. Ive learned to be more patient. I was not a patient person before children. In fact I swore to never have any since I was the family baby sitter I felt like I already had kids. But once I had them it was the most amazing feeling.

  • Anastasia says:
    Teaching Marion to climb, sooo many visits to the hospital for falling lately.

  • Megan says:
    No regrets but everyone makes mistakes but you just have to learn from them

  • Kristi says:
    yelling and fighting with Devon in front of the boys

  • Karen says:
    No regrets

  • Amy says:
    Definitely. A fast pace life is not good for a mother. You don't take the time to really cherish the moments in life.

  • Heidie says:
    I don't regret anything .. and so far no mistakes!!

  • Ashley says:

  • alicia says:
    dont regret anything just learn from ur mistakes...and nope

  • Julie says:
    No regrets

  • Angela says:

  • Michele says:
    May mistakes learned from.... NO REGRETS! (Still learning)

  • Lynn says:
    Allowing people to walk all over me when I was a new mom and tell me what was best because I learned only a mother knows best.

  • Vanessa says:
    jus wishin i woulda stayed in school and got my diploma

  • Crystal says:
