Today's challenge is my biggest insecurity. This wasn't tough at all. I am terrified that I'm a bad mother.
When the kids scream for ten minutes straight, when I yell at them, when I swat their butts in anger, when my friends tell me how fast their kids are progressing, when I read books by multi-millionaire mothers with 2.4 "gifted" kids who can play 5 instruments and are choosing which Ivy League college to attend... all these things make me wonder if I'm doing it right. I know there's technically no "right" way to parent, but that's not what all the best-selling parenting books tell me.
It's not hard to bring out a mother's insecurities.
