Happy Mother's Day - Nobody Really Knows What They Are Doing
By The Business/Judo of Life on May 12, 2014
I have often threatened to write a book on parenting with the title:Nobody Really Knows What They Are DoingThe older I get, the more evident this is. In the last ten years, my daughters have done relatively well - graduated from NYU, masters from USC, scholarship to prep school, Olympic medal, world champion, journalist of the year, etc.All of a sudden people are telling me what a great mother I was to them and asking my parenting advice.Prior to all of that success, I was just the worst mother in the entire world out to ruin their lives. They were dropping out of high school, running away from home, passed out drunk at parties where I had tracked them down and carried them out of the house on my shoulders. . . .
