I had read dozens of books on parenting before having kids. I was so cautious to learn things about child growth and psychology. Later, I realized that parenting is never the same for all kids/ parents. Parenting is natural and almost comes as an instinct, you cannot train yourself beforehand. Every situation teaches you something new, and every child behaves different in situations. So, it is a never-ending learning for both parents and kids. I figured out that books cannot tell you what and when to do, it is you who will have the answer within when a situation arises.
