Here’s Looking At You(r) Kid (for JustB)
Obviously I post a lot of things on my blog about people I care for. As a parent, I often struggle to find the balance between saying too much, and sitting alone in my office with no one and getting everything about raising any kind of successful child completely and totally wrong.
Yes I do.
This week I wrote a piece for the beautiful JustB about how much we should share about our children. My basic sentiment is “lots, but make sure they’re okay with it”. Then I thought, maybe my kids aren’t okay with it, but they’re scared of me because I’m a big bully. And then I thought, maybe they are okay with it, but I should know better and tell them that it’s not okay. And then I thought, maybe they’re okay with it now, but maybe they won’t be okay with it later.
So you see, I have some insecurities when it comes to doing things at any time ever.
In writing this piece, I was forced to think about what I do online. Maybe I do share too much. Maybe in my well-meaning journey to find out how to help Georgia, I am being unkind. Maybe I should think more and post less.
