Thank you for sharing this. No one knows what kind of parent they are going to be until they are one. You are right, it is about trusting yourself that you are making the right decisions and that everything will turn out ok.

Thank YOU for reading. Trust...it's a toughie, especially when our kids are different in temperament from us. What I have found, however, is that, even when we make the *wrong* decision in a given parenting situation, there is usually opportunity to learn and adjust.
