Parental Fears: Moms Share their Parenting Fears

The parenting journey is one filled with lots of ups and downs, funny moments, tender moments, and even scary moments. As parents, it’s natural to worry about our children and second-guess your parenting decisions. That’s why last week I collected stories from other moms and shared them on Disney Baby – so that parents can see they’re not alone when feeling that way.

I chatted with other moms and found out their biggest parental fears and their experiences in letting baby sleep in their bed. Plus, I collected a few baby-friendly Lent recipes for this Lenten season. Check out all of this week’s stories as shared on Disney Baby and feel free to leave a comment over there too!

Rev. Foley,You’ve hit on an aspect of sptiitualiry that has been rolling around in my head for a long time. It is essentially why Lenten disciplines developed differently in the East and the West.In our Orthodox Churches, we fast together. The Lenten disciplines are the same for monks, bishops, priests, the laity (the Royal priesthood), and everyone. We fast from meat and dairy products during the season all together. The question What are you giving up for Lent? is simply not heard among us. We fast together. We have the three basic Lenten disciplines of Prayer, Fasting, and Almsgiving as the goals for our Lenten journey and we have the prayer of St. Ephrem as the basic spiritual guide:O Lord and Master of my life, give me not the spirit of sloth, idle curiosity (meddling), lust for power and idle talk.But grant unto me, Thy servant, a spirit of chastity (integrity), humility, patience and love.Yea, O Lord and King, grant me to see mine own faults and not to judge my brother. For blessed art Thou unto the ages of ages. Amen.To be sure, we fast as you can, not as you cannot. No one goes into a gym and starts bench-pressing 300 lbs the first visit, but we do fast as a community. I continue to appreciate your work and look forward to your book. May God grant you a spiritually profitable Great Lent (as opposed to the Little Lent before the Nativity) and may God bring us all to that night that is brighter than the day when the whole world will sing Christ is risen from the dead, trampling down death by death, and on those in the tombs bestowing life! Your servant,Fr. Barnabas
