The Best Advice

Someone asked the internet what was the best advice they received as a parent.

Mine was “don’t rush her. She will gain each milestone in her time when she is ready.”

In a world where your child’s development feels like a reflection of your value, and where everything your child does is a competition with other children simply because that is how our society functions, it is so hard to battle this thought.

My child is who she is. She will develop in each way when she is ready. So will yours.
