Be the kind of parent you needed!
There is no book to tell you how to be the perfect parent. However, what you can do is learn from your parents and other parents around you mistakes. You know when something doesn't feel right. Go with your gut! Listen to your child/ children watch what they do and how they express themselves. Parenting is a hard (even harder when you are doing by yourself) but when you made that decision to be a parent you made the choice to put their needs before yours. Always keep in mind how you were raised. Did you like or dislike how you were raised? Change the things you didn't like. Don't make the same mistakes, break the cycle in your family and be the kind of parent you needed!
