The Best Advice My Mother Gave Me

When you’re expecting your firstborn nothing can ever truly prepare you for that daunting feeling that someday soon you’re going to be responsible for another person. And while there’s excitement, it’s always fine to admit that there is also nerves and worry.


It often doesn’t happen until much later in the pregnancy, or sometimes it can just hit you like a tonne of bricks when you get home and see that cherub-like face staring back at you.


But the fact is, most parents are ‘winging-it’ and there’s no rule book for creating a perfect child. You simply have to do your best and ensure to get as much support behind you as possible.


That’s why for this special feature we’ve asked mum’s to share the words of wisdom they were given by their parents.


Whether they make you laugh or cry, we hope you enjoy their honesty, and why not share your story with us over on our Facebook and Twitter pages.  



For when it all feels too much….


“There are only ever 24 hours in a day whether that day is good or bad. It makes it all much more bearable when you think about things a day at a time”.

Tasha - Mummy & Moose - @mummyandmoose



“When you see your child’s eyes staring at you for the first time, you’ll know the pain was worth it.” - Rai - Rawya Blog @Rei-Al3amri


For when you doubt yourself….


“My mum told me to trust my instinct. Especially when I felt something wasn’t quite right with my daughter.” - Emma - Isabella and Us @isabella_and_us


“My father actually gave me superb advice. He said not to bother reading any parenting books as they’re all different, and it’s all fine!” - @this_is_silk


“Always trust your instincts, what worked for someone else, doesn’t mean it will work for you, go with what you think is best.”  - Clare Barry @VictoriaJamesC


And for when the tantrums start…


“It’s a phase! Trouble was, she never explained the ‘phases’ last until they reach 30.” Rea Radford @whatnewsuk
