I’m just trying to be the best parent I can be. There’s no such thing as a perfect parent. I know that. But I want to be a better one. I think I’ll do that by keep learning and keep trying. And I think that by reflecting here, hopefully daily, on my experiences, successes, failures and learnings, it will help me become a better parent. That’s the hope anyway!
We live near London and have two girls, our oldest is 13. I found the first four years of being a Mum particularly tough. Now moving in to the teenage years, it feels like a whole new challenge all over again.
