Good, bad, I’m the one with a kid October 20, 2014

We tend to focus on good parents and write off the bad ones. Countless books on parenting tips talk about what you should do, but we rarely talk about bad parenting and where it comes from. When we do, it’s usually attributed to something unhelpful (stupidity, ignorance or moral failure).

Seriously, where are these ideal parents anyway? Have you ever met anyone who honestly think their parents were perfect?

Truth is, all parents love their children, nobody sets out to be a bad parent. Understanding where bad parenting come from is just as useful, if not more, than studying the good ones.

So it is with everything else, really. We tend to¬†celebrate success and ignore failures, when there’s so much to learn from them.

Good, bad, I’m the one responsible for my life.
