It goes without saying that I love my children to bits. I don’t think that I am a bad parent – I think that generally speaking, I am doing better than OK. There are some things I know I need to work on though – the most important thing being patience.
I want to be able to teach and guide them lovingly. By this I mean I want to take the edge out of my voice when they don’t understand something. I want them to know that it is OK to try and that making mistakes is but a stepping stone.
