Day 191

I wish my son had A...

Better Dad. I feel inadequate, I am not the one to show him things, simple things like tie laces, ride a bike. I don't possess the skills to teach him anything, I have no knowledge to pass onto him. I look at him and could cry.

To me he's the best little guy in the world, he's smart, he's funny and he's caring. I don't know how I helped produce this little gem.

I honestly think that if he wasn't here then I doubt I would be alive today.

As much as I feel like a failure of a father, I wouldn't want him growing up and have so many questions about why I wasn't around, the last thing I would want is him blaming himself.

    All you need to be is a Good Enough parent. See: http://childprotectionresource.online/category/good-enough-parenting-2/

    You don't need to teach him skills, he'll pick those up just fine. You just need to be there when he needs you:

    Talking, reading, playing, cuddling and communicating.

    This is what is important.
