Can we get a parent advice thread going? Any general parenting tips/advice you feel are important.
I'm a young mother with a toddler and would like to hear any advice, regret, or things you feel other parents should know.
Im a anxious person and my son is already becoming his own person and I would like to be the best I can for him.

Don't have any.

No matter what you do you'll fuck them up somehow so don't stress over it too much.

You'll never be ready to have them and when you are you won't be able to.

Just when you're all settled life will throw you a curveball and fuck it up.

Act like a teacher not a friend.

General tip: Relax, it is easier than in the first year.

Dos: You want to let him do stuff, fall and hurt himself occasionally, run outside a lot as soon as able, play games with him, particularly the ones which encourage imagination and creativity, teach him and show him lots of love, but give him limits and enforce them.

Don'ts: You DON'T want to show your anxiety by becoming an overprotective parent. You DON'T want to give him too much attention (you should watch him, but he can't know you watch him all the time). You want him to become emotionally secure, strong and independent. You don't want to make him a brat. If at all feasible, kick the tv out of your lives.

That is a start. My kids are both doing great, but they have a world champion mom. I do my father bit too, but she is the wonder which makes everything tick.

I notice the tv addiction among my friends' toddlers and up. Literal tantrums if it's turned off. Can't wait till they get a hold of an iPad or phone.

I try to keep them away from all of it. They get an hour of cartoons from my laptop, half in the morning and half before bedtime and that is it.

No kids, but from what I observe you need to have at least 3 sons to be guaranteed any progeny that doesn't suck and fail. 3 seems to be the magic number. Below that you're just hoping for good rolls.

Limit the amount of times you drop them on their head. The first 2 - 3x's you may get lucky, but eventually the odds will catch up with you.
