We spend most of our time now comparing our self to every other parent out there, worrying if we're raising our children correctly and if people are judging our decisions. Take me back to the 90's where nobody judged you for what you gave your child for dinner and social media mum shaming wasn't a thing. 

I've found some wonderful quotes around and thought I'd share my favourite ones with you.

* "There's no such thing as a perfect parent. So just be a real one." - Sue Atkins

* "If I had my child to raise all over again, I’d build self-esteem first, and the house later. I’d finger-paint more, and point the finger less. I would do less correcting and more connecting. I’d take my eyes off my watch, and watch with my eyes. I’d take more hikes and fly more kites. I’d stop playing serious, and seriously play. I would run through more fields and gaze at more stars. I’d do more hugging and less tugging." – Diane Loomans

* "The way we talk to our children become their inner voice." - Peggy O'Mara

* "Enjoy the little things, for one day you may look back and realise they were the big things." – Robert Brault

* "If you want your children to improve, let them overhear the nice things you say about them to others." – Haim Ginott

* "Time spent playing with children is never wasted." - Dawn Iantero

* "Motherhood is not a battle against other mothers. Motherhood is YOUR journey with YOUR children." 

* "Each day of our lives we make deposits in the memory banks of our children." – Charles R. Swindoll

* "Children spell love… T-I-M-E." – Dr. A. Witham

* "Kids don't remember their best day of television."
