Stressed About Parenting? Listen to This TED Talk.

I really appreciated this woman’s approach to parenting. She says that it is too much for parents to be responsible for the happiness of their children.

This is a refreshing, common sense talk about parenting in this day and age when we can feel overwhelmed with the possibilities for our kids. We don’t have to make our kids into super-kids, experts in ballet, soccer, and horseback riding, while getting straight As and learning to play Beethoven on the piano.  And all that before Kindergarten!

Parenting has gotten so complicated in the past couple of decades. We are so invested in making our kids  “successful,” that we forget that parenting doesn’t have to be complicated. Love your kids. Teach them right from wrong. Give them hugs, and kisses, and a healthy dose of boundaries.
