The Insecure New Parent

I’d say I’m a realist some days, some days insecure, & others I’m an idealistic romantic ready to take on the world (I think it depends on the moon, haha). But in all seriousness, parenting is a worrisome endeavor. As a parent you are responsible for an entire life, from the very start. I have to say that is a lot of pressure, especially when you do it on your own as a single parent. Therefore I became an educated mother… a little out of fear of ‘not doing it right,’ but mostly empowered by the immense love I have for my daughter & my desire to do the best I can for her.

So I say there is no shame in being insecure in your parenting, for me it meant that I care enough to bypass arrogance & ego & admit that there was so much I didn’t know & so sought the information. For all those moms & dads out there who can identify with feeling this way, or for those curious about healthy parenting & healthy living– as of today I am starting a thread, under the Category “Healthy Parenting” with topical sub-categories.

The first few posts will be on plastics: simple comprehensive facts on how to read those codes (which signify not only their recycling classification but what chemicals constitute them, & which leach into your food & are known carcinogens). I will also talk about how to take a realistic approach to  healthy living: of how to have some plastic in our lives while minimizing our exposure to toxins.

I hope you all find these posts helpful. I’d love to hear your comments & about any topics you’re particularly concerned or passionate about.
