Parenting is just down right difficult at times. Second guessing yourself wondering if the decisions you make will hinder them or will they feel some kind of way about you when they grow up. The whole process feels like a shot in the dark at times.
Last year my husband and I made the decision to not force my son to play football when he brought it to our attention that he didn’t want to play. I even wrote a post about the whole dilemma that got featured on BlogHer and I was heralded for being a great mother for standing by my son’s decision. At the time we wanted to allow him the space to voice his desires knowing that we would stand behind and support him.
