parenting advice! from my younger self (all these were written before i became a parent]

-do not ever compare your child to another
-when you're wrong, say you're sorry
-let them help around the house from young, divide chores equally
-encourage and inspire them, not scold and nag. praise them. Dont belittle them.
-do not yell. children learn by example.
-Educate your children about finances

-dont say "that's the sort of person you are" when they do smtg wrong

(I obviously didn't understand the challenges of being a parent at the time but it's valuable insight from a place I'll never be at again - pre-parenting)
