If you feel like you’re just a walking disaster of a parent who can’t stop doing things that are definitely going to screw up your kid, fear not. Everyone else is doing the same thing.
The average parent screws up more than four times per week.
They make a total of 221 mistakes per year . . . for a total of just under 4,000 screw ups before their kid finally turns 18.
The top ways we screw up are: Letting the kids have too much screen time . . . accidentally swearing in front of them . . . and letting them watch something that’s totally inappropriate.
The age when kids are the toughest is SIX . . . and the youngest kid is the one who’s the most likely to cause trouble.
