No Q, not always. The vast majority of parents who, by some accident of biology, find themselves holding a brand new tiny human being for the very first time actually are prepared to give that little one their very best shot at a life in which they can fulfill their greatest potential. At that moment of introduction they find a ferocious love inside themselves for their child that they never imagined it was possible to feel. Love that would even kill to protect from outside harm. And, what is more, the majority of parents in the lands where you and I live, Q, do their best to be GOOD ENOUGH parents. They will never be perfect....but who is?
I'm putting the case of the 'good enough' parent today because it was on this day 25 years ago that I pushed into the world the beautiful, wonderful little entity who is my daughter......currently out at the pub with her best friend
I'm on the side of parents AND kids all over the world.
How do I feel today?
