Is anyone else absolutely terrified of being a bad parent?!? Surely not just me?!
I'm so terrified I'm doing a bad job and being a bad parent! I'm so scared I'm doing the wrong thing, and I'm going to screw up! I end up analyzing all of my interactions with my DD.
I'm so scared she will have insecure attachment with me. I keep taking note of whether my DD is affected by separation from me, whether she is nervous around strangers.
I know it sounds really silly, but I actually get very nervous and anxious and worked up about it all. And then I worry that my nerves are affecting my DD and my relationship with her. Vicious cycle!!
