So far from what I know you never know whats right or wrong until they are old enough to show you what they have learnt from you. I dont know if there is a mother out there that did everything right and to be honest I highly doubt anyone could find one. We are mums and at times we are super woman but we are allowed to make mistakes and most probably will but thats to be expected when your creating the next generation:):)

Everyone's situation is different, so what might be right for one isn't necessarily right for the other. So, my advice is follow your instincts and keep in mind whatever you do and whatever you say, although you think your kids may not hear you or may not be watching - they are - so your best indicator is your kids and if they're behaving appropriately and doing well - you're on the right track!

My kids are older but I am a single mom and wanted to join to talk with other moms and if I can give advice or get advice for myself that would be a nice thing. I don't know if I am always doing the right thing but I try to go with my gut feeling and hope it works out for the best

One of my friends told me that when you children say they hate you or complain about the ground rules-then you know you are doing something right.  I am devastated when my son focusing his frustration on me but I know he doesn't mean it.  What kind of mother would I be if I let him gorge himself on Spiderman snacks?  It is just all part trying to do the best for our kids.  I always worry that I could be doing more to have more male role models in my son's life.

you cant, you just have to do your best with what you have. mistsakes will be made, we are all human but we will learn from them. you just have to do what you think best at the time.

You can't. You just have to do what you think is right. Just remember, no one can love your kids as much, or better, than you do!

Nobody knows if what your doing is right all the time. its hard to make the right choices for your children, its all trial and error im afraid god knows ive made a few wrong choices, but my boys are happy and healthy and Rebecca is right you need friends or family that understand your situation around you to ask their advice

Unfortunetly I don't think you can know, and this is why having the support of other mums around you is vital.  I don't always know what to do in any given situation, and so I turn to my friends, especially those with children older than mine. I listen to what a few of them have to say and work out if I can apply that to my families situation.
