This is one of my least favorite parenting phrases. Mostly because my instincts suck. But also because it’s the go-to parenting advice when someone has no actual advice but they still want to sound wise. And also because a lot of people will use the “instincts” line as an excuse to not actually research anything. Although “educate yourself” is another one of my least favorite parenting advice phrases.

I wish I had drawn this differently and had my son doing something crazy in it and myself looking frazzled or something. I think it comes off snarkier than what I had intended.
