The Most Practical (and Realistic) Parenting Advice you will Ever Read
Some days you will lose it over something petty
With the publication of French Children Don't Throw Food by Pamela Druckerman (Doubleday), strict parenting appears to be back in vogue. Yet three out of ten parents admit to being a 'pushover', according to a recent survey.
With so many conflicting parenting styles and advice on offer, it's virtually impossible to be consistent, and occasionally you may feel you've overreacted to a minor matter. If you feel ashamed, apologise and explain why you reacted in the way you did.
No one's perfect, and it's good for children to realise that adults make mistakes sometimes, and are big enough to say sorry. Don'e lose sleep over it.
