Behind the Iron Parenting Curtain

I was reminiscing today about having been a new parent. My son’s 18 now, (insert relieved sigh here) and very independent (insert EMPHATIC relieved sigh).

New parents and parents- to- be will get a lot of expert advice from every quarter, and some of it is even GOOD advice.

I remember getting a lot of both kinds of advice when I became a Mom. My own Mom gave me two of the best pieces of advice I ever got as I was just beginning my journey of motherhood.
