We live in a big and scary world. It is sometimes overwhelming to make decisions regarding what is best for our kids. As an only parent, 100% of the decisions made for my children are made by me. When my children were small, I was quick to second guess myself. Was I making the right choices? How did I know that what I decided was really best for them?
As a single mom and an only parent, I had to learn to trust myself and trust my instincts. Every child and every family is different. I knew that there was no way I would ever intentionally put my children in harms way, so I needed to trust that the choices I was making were always in my children's best interest.
As a new mom, it is important to trust yourself. Trust that feeling in your gut or that voice in the back of your head. You are doing the best you can, and that is good enough.
