I know we all hope to be successful moms, but do you honestly think you either have or will have raised responsible, socially functioning, well manered children?

Well, I should hope so or the parents who come to pay me for my professional services are going to be very disappointed! Before I was "Mom" I was a therapist who worked with children and their families from anything like divorce, trauma, to serious chronic mental illness. I have friends who joke that I have the only two year old who articulates that he is "frustrated" and "needs my personal space and time." It is an everyday reaching and teaching. I now get to practice what I preached to many of the parents I worked with. I love that I have a lot of tools and knowledge under my belt.....the bad part is I can be very hard on myself on days where I have what I call "a bad parenting day." None of us are perfect but most of us raise good kids.
