"After reading the sixteenth parenting book that contradicted the first fifteen, I quit trying to become a better parent and decided to try becoming a better person."

Carrier On, Warrier: Thoughts on Life Unarmed.
If you are a mama that likes to read blogs, books, magazines, or attend classes for parenting tips and ideas...you can easily find yourself overwhelmed with too many things you want to try, teach, change, embrace.
Go easy on yourself. You are their best mama....without the books, blogs, or other resources. Those things are great inspiration. And I always feel better getting a good dose of some parenting mojo. But it is always good to keep it in check.
