Today I attended a baby shower and I couldn’t help but reminisce about parenting and motherhood. As I enjoyed the festivities I thought about the advice I would give to a new mom. There’s a lot of advice out there and most of it is well-intentioned. However, friends, family members, the media, the Internet, even perfect strangers seem to have plenty of opinions about being a parent. So here’s my number one piece of advice….
“Only you can be the best mother to your child. You know your child best, so trust your instincts.”
That’s it. Simply said.
