If you’re expecting your first child, it’s possible you may be experiencing a handful of jitters. You may be wondering whether or not you’re going to be a good parent. You may be experiencing all kinds of pervasive doubts. All of this is completely normal, and we’re here to alleviate your worries. Here’s why you may be a much better parent than you think.
Let’s first get the elephant in the room out of the way. Our post-modern generation is known to have large quantities of young adults who experience imposter syndrome. In a nutshell, it’s like you don’t belong in a certain role or position, that your skills aren’t advanced enough, and that essentially you’re an “imposter”. More often than not, these feelings aren’t weighted in a solid foundation, and you have nothing to worry about.
The Baby Just Wants You to Love Them
At the risk of sounding cheesier than ever, all your baby really wants is for you to love them. Sure, you as a parent will be responsible for taking care of them in millions of different ways. This is a very real thing that you’re starting to become aware of, but as long as you take that seriously and try your best, there’s no way that you can ever be a bad parent. It’s a lot more natural to you than you realize, and once that baby comes you may find that you’re obsessed with being their parent!
