I don’t know how you feel, but in my opinion, parenting is hard! Someone must have forgotten to hand me the instruction manual when my children came home. I have yet to meet a parent who wouldn’t appreciate one.

New parents can count on getting lots of advice from well-meaning friends and relatives, and sometimes even perfect strangers. Some of that advice is welcome and useful. Some, not so much. And sometimes that advice is downright dangerous.
