Perhaps it's a term best describing mothers, but Dad's need to think

about what they are doing in terms of Fathering.



It's very rare to come across a Dad who thinks he might be doing too

much, but it does happen and we need to stop and ask why.



I don't have an opinion on whether we should be like those "Attachment

Parenting" advocates, constantly involved in every second of our

child's life... or not.



But I do think that if your parenting style in motivated by what

others are doing or thinking about you, you are likely to regret your

actions down the track.



However you thoughtfully and lovingly decide to parent your children,

don't change course just because of those sidewards glances by parents

that seem to have it all figured out... because they don't.
