On Guilt

October 1: Guide to Parenting.

Because it involves dwelling on the past, guilt inhibits creative action in the present. One of the most counter-productive things, therefor, you can do to either yourself or your child is feel guilty.

(Easier said than done, eh Einstein?)

Hey, get out of my head. Seriously.

Guilt gets you nowhere. Great lipgloss, on the other hand . . .

Heavy Sigh.

I'm really trying to NOT feel guilty about a lot of things.... mostly kid-related things.... but hey, I was raised Catholic..... guilt is something we do with a capital G.

When I first became pregnant my mother told me "being a parent means going to bed feeling guilty every night"

Cheers mum

but true.
