“The hardest for me has been the absolute unrelenting unreasonable tantrums. The screaming sometimes grates on your nervous system, and you don't always know when you're about to cross your threshold and snap,” one parent confessed.
“For me, it's a fact in today's society, one way or another, you are always wrong,” shared one. “You are a bad mom if you take the weekend to be kid-free. And if you bottle feed, you are a terrible mom.”
“The hardest part for me has been the total lack of control you have to accept and lean into. Sometimes kids don't nap, sleep, etc., even when you think you can take a shower. Sometimes that can't happen. And even more significant is kids can be sick or need more care than expected."
