There is so much hype these days on social media sites and soft news sources about how to parent, why you're a bad parent unless you do this that or some other totally random thing. We are inundated with "How You're Ruining Your Child's Life" posts pretty much daily. I can't scroll through my newsfeed even once without finding some sort of article detailing exactly HOW it is that I'm ruining my children basically forever.
I've been ruminating all these helpful how-to's for the last few days as we've settled into the new year. Resolutions for how to be a "better" mom were floating around in my head; unformed, uncommitted, and uninspired.
