Trusting your mothering instincts

It's so hard, in this day and age, to trust yourself because the media, parents, everyone is giving you advice everywhere you go. Even in the grocery market, someone has a word of wisdom for you. You start to think that maybe you need all this advice. What I tell people is, you know your child best. Trust yourself. I learned that one night when my child was really sick. My husband, who is a doctor, of course, was like, "He's fine. He's fine." It was me who took him to the Emergency Room and he wasn't fine. It was that moment, it became crystal clear to me, I know my child best. Even better than my husband. From that moment on, self-trust, mother's instinct -- call it what you want -- is the most important thing in raising my children.
