Remember That List?
Before you had children, did you have a mental list of all the things you would and would not do when your first baby was born? For some parents, once the baby arrives and the reality sets in, learning to let that list of ideals go can be very difficult, and parents may even feel they are failing both their child, and themselves, as parents.

The following pointers concerning some typical parenting concerns, even before birth, come from parents who have come to realize that every situation is different and that you can never really say beforehand how you will parent your child. Just do the best you can and enjoy the experience of being a parent.
