Parenting Isn't for Cowards!

As a mother of 5 children, parenting has taken me on quite a journey! I became a mother at 16 and now having turned 40 this year I look back on all that I have learned and wondered if there is any one out there would might need some words of wisdom? I'm not saying I did everything right. But I know my children are the lights of my life and like all parents I wanted them to have things better than I did.
