So let’s just say you did something completely crazy like, oh I don’t know, answer the wanted ad for parenting? Wanted: A Parent. Faint Hearted Need Not Apply. Hey, it’s ok, we all do it because there is no accounting for crazy.
It is the logical progression.
1. Do something crazy like become a parent
2. Ask for help from those who have run the gauntlet.
3. Apply advice liberally in a trial and error fashion.
4. Hope, plead, pray, cross fingers for the best.
Thank you to all the contributors who helped me put together the awesome list! Apparently, I not only need help with parenting, I need help compiling a list of tips to help with parenting. It is a good thing I have such wonderful (and vastly smart) friends and family!
