Doing Your Best

Parenting often feels hard
Too much discipline or too little
There’s a fine line to balance
Everyone else an expert
On what you’re doing wrong
Rebuke leaves your lips in volume
Followed by the dark cloud of guilt
“Why don’t I have it together like her?”
Look a little closer my friend
Have a conversation with perfection
It’s an illusion of great proportion
We all have our difficulties
Learning as we go
No operating manual received at birth
No one really knows
So long as you’re evaluating actions
You are doing your very best
