OK folks, this is a big one for all parents. The parent guilt… it can crop up at any time, no matter how well we are doing, that nagging guilt creeps in. So we opened the floor to you and asked what are the moments that have given you that guilt and how you deal with it. We feel this is another topic that isn’t discussed enough, we shouldn’t feel ashamed of the guilt we all get. In fact, we should talk about it to share the burden and also get some support from our fellow parents.
It was great to hear from three of the great dads from our community, @liam_king_88 , @bennklewpatinond and @markgs21, about the guilt they feel as parents, and how they tackle it. As always a massive thanks to everyone who joined the conversation in the comments to.
