Read some of the books by Karen Alpert. Great parenting advice.

It's in your heart not your head. The heart aches will go away with the good thing that will come. have faith.


It sounds simple but I think doing the basics is the best way to parent - daily scripture study/prayer, FHE, weekly church meetings, regular temple attendance. My motto is do it but keep it simple and be consistent. The ancillary benefit of doing these things is that you spend quality time together as a family, you provide structure and discipline to your children, you show them examples of how to love/live, and best of all, you have to be creative to get them done consistently and you have to cooperate with your spouse/children to get them done. It is really hard to do these simple things without diligent effort, hard work, and especially kindness and love.

I have loved the quote "What kids need most are parents that do not need them." Google this quote and read some articles about it and tell me what you think. I think this could be very helpful to parents.
