Mistakes New Parents Make Frequently

sunsetAll parents make mistakes. Whether your brand new to parenting, or your on number 5; it’s inevitable that you’re going to get frustrated and make irrational decisions. The truth is there is no formula to being a parent, but people tend to compare themselves to what they believe is an expert caregiver. You should absolutely take advice from others with experience, but if you want your child to have a unique upbringing it’s going to come from being yourself and not trying to be perfect all the time. Here are some very common mistakes I see happening frequently:

Paid A Visit To My Best Friend This Week

If you read the page Our Story, you know I’m all about helping new mothers and fathers, this weekend was quite an eye opener for me because I saw a family that’s very similar to mine; part of their influence came from the same place. I’ve been doing a bit of travelling lately, and I decided to pay a visit to my hometown. I stayed with my best friend from high school, his girlfriend and their 8 month old son. It was great to catch up. He knew of my family and I knew of his but we hadn’t been properly introduced, so this was a nice weekend and a good opportunity to get to know each other.

Vancouver Island

The trip was completely packed with adventures. We spent just about every day at a beach, hiking mountains and visiting the many tourist attractions they have on Vancouver Island. These two that I visited; Taylor And Steph live in Nanaimo B.C, but we went to Victoria, as well as Tofino.

Tofino has got to be hands down the most beautiful place on earth; it’s got a very nice and calming vibe to it. We stayed in a cabin on Long Beach to start the trip, then we went all the way down to Victoria, what a beautiful place. We did some whale watching and mountain hiking on numerous mountains, tuckered ourselves right out. After our last hike we went back to Nanaimo and spent some time with Taylor’s relatives. Taylor told me all about his new company called: Tree Service Nanaimo – his words were “yes it’s been a lot of work, but man is the money nice.” This summer he was making close to $15,000 a month in profit, which makes me really happy because he has been worried about money his whole life, so it’s awesome to see him doing well.

Food Allergies

A food allergy occurs when your immune system reacts poorly to a certain organism and the chemical imbalance causes a reaction of some kind. Whether the reaction is minor or major, food allergies should be taken very seriously and I advise every parent to do their research.


Peanut butter’s good for you, feed it to your children if they can eat it, but keep it at home as the risks can be quite high.

Baby Boy Set
baby-boy-setI am adopted. My parents are very kind and caring people, and I am still in contact with them today, and always have been. Basically my parents were 18 years old when I was born and they didn’t feel that they were fit to take on the responsibility once I was actually present. I was understanding growing up, never held any resentment or anything, and I know that people are young and stupid sometimes… Having said that, I wanted to come on here to try and drill into the younger bunch who choose to follow this blog to not only wear a condom… But make sure you are ready for the decision to have a child before you go and do it. I’ve seen too many poor decisions when it comes to this topic and it’s not something to take lightly. No the sky isn’t falling if you make a poor decision, but man are you impacting not only yourself but the people around you, likely people you care about the most.

Please, people, think before you act.

Common Issues/Objections & Overcoming Them

When I first started blogging, I had a lot of traffic coming to my sites and it got overwhelming. People started expecting things from me, the one on one interactions with people although I quite enjoy it, it just became too much for me, so I apologized and told everyone I was too busy and shut them down. Now I’ve got a second wind and am trying to re-instate myself with the public. My wife is here helping me answer some questions as well as being a part of some of my blogs. All of my hobbies, interests and responsibilities are kind of all in one place so everything flows a lot more naturally now. I will re-iterate now that if anyone has any questions  or are looking for advice, definitely contact us.

Welcoming All New Parents And Caregivers
