I hear so many parents second guess their parenting instincts - turning to the masses for advice. Of course, there's knowledge to be soaked up by listening to what works for others. But there's nothing like parenting from your heart, doing what FEELS right to you as the one true expert on your child.
Where can we find the greatest example of parenting by heart? In other mammals. There's something to be said for how mammals raise their young in the wild. It's a force driven by instinct, the need to protect and unconditional love and acceptance. Unless, of course, you're the runt of the litter...but I digress....
If nothing else, here's some sweetness in nature for you to soak up.
