I find myself thinking about the future alot and I am really scared. I feel like I need to try harder and be a better mom. I'm scared that me and so do not have good enough parenting skills and habits to set a good example for our son. I feel like I need to try harder on a day to day basis but really I already try my hardest. Maye I'm trying too hard. Ahhhhh I feel clueless on how to parent. What am I even doing! Maybe I need to get a parenting book. Ugh now I'm just rambling k done

It's ok. We all learn as we go Hun. Sometimes you'll make mistakes. Learn from them. Ask questions on here when you're unsure or if your gut tells you something's not right. I'd be more than happy to answer any specific questions you have or give you advice if there's any topics you're concerned about. Maybe instead of overwhming yourself with a parenting overhaul try adding some new thing each month to get in a new habit.

Lol, I'm pretty sure most parents feel that way. If they don't there is probably something wrong with it. Doing your best is all you can do!! :)

Thank you! And yes I think you're right. I might be overwhelming myself by looking at the whole thing when I need to just take it step by step. I just feel like there's alot you need to remember and do to be a good parent.
