Best bit of parenting advice I read

November 30, 2015

I don’t recall where I read it, but it was something along these lines –

Your child deserves the happiest version of you, so do whatever makes you happy. 

Incredibly simple, and yet, so spot-on right? If going back to your full time job makes you happy, go for it. If quitting your job and staying at home full time makes you happy, do it. If going out with friends for a drink or dinner post-work makes you happy, go for it. If it makes you guilty and worried constantly, don’t do it. And so on. 

Actually, why just children, this mantra should apply to everyone. Heck, you yourself deserve the happiest version of you. So, really, do more of what makes you happy, yes?

(This post is dedicated to you, V :-))



  1. This is such a great bit of advice – and just what I needed to read today! Thank you!

  2. Thank you and love you <3. I needed to hear / read that. Will pop in and re-read this everyday :-). That has the added bonus that I would bring a little bit of you into my day 😀
