19They Feel Overcome By All The Expertise
Here’s the kicker to having all the information in the world: it’s too much. One mother told the NY Times, "We feel like kids who aren’t old enough to have kids.” Parents have so much more information on child development available to them; information that was once reserved only
for experts. That’s a gift and a burden. When an app is telling you that your 2-month-old ought to be sleeping this specific amount of minutes, it’s easy to ignore your intuition and get more hung up on the numbers and graphs.
Information is so much more widely available, but there’s only so much research you can do when your children are more deserving of that attention.
