Here is a wonderful link. Take some time to listen to this. “We all know that perfect parenting does not exist, yet we still struggle with the social expectations that teach us that being imperfect is synonymous with being inadequate.” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SLZhG90HFG8

 Looking for parenting tips and podcast, look no further.  The following link will take you to some great podcasts. They are spoken from parents who are going through some of the same things you are going through. Take a look and listen you won’t be disappointed. Look for “Notes From a Backpack” this is where you will find the podcasts.
