Parenting is very difficult and doesn’t come with a manual for how to go about it. Everyone is human and in many cases we learn from our mistakes. Some mistakes and regrets in parenting come with the territory, although dwelling on regrets is not a healthy way of going about life. Learning from mistakes and extracting lessons from them is how we grow and move forward in life. This article gives a father’s perspective on how to use regrets in parenting, towards better parenting by being more constructive with your children, being more consistent, and dealing with issues that will help them in the future, such as money matters and relationships, and by taking an interest in what they care about and what they love doing.
This is a good read and I suggest it for any parent looking to gather insights about parenting.
