You haven’t failed them

By Shelley Heaphy

I recently read an article of the same title by a blogger named Amanda Ledbetter and was struck by its truth. I could certainly relate to her thoughts and you possibly can to.
Have you ever had a moment of doubt in yourself during your child’s life? A moment where you’ve stopped and thought “Oh no, I’ve failed them.”
Most of us have, possibly for so many reasons. It might be because you failed to see that they were being bullied, you didn’t notice a developmental milestone not being reached, you thought the way they said that word was cute instead of troublesome, you didn’t realize they were hungry or they stayed in a poopy diaper for a long car ride.
