My Biggest Fear as a Parent

Standard

My biggest fear as a parent is not being enough for my boys. I worry about this constantly. I mean, why shouldn’t I? I’m raising two human beings.
The beliefs and values that I instill on them will follow them for life. What if I make a mistake? What if I don’t say the right things, do the right things, or provide the right things to make them who they need to be? What if they grow up to resent me, or even worse…to hate me?
Thoughts like this are my drive to work so hard in the home. It’s not enough to be present all the time. I need to be not only their mother, but their teacher, confidant, and companion. It’s so much stress, day in and day out…but I could never picture myself without children. These two boys are my world, and I hope that I am enough to be theirs too.
