If this sounds familiar, take heart: every parent I have met as an assistant working in this type of child care center in Sydney has felt this at some point, only to redouble their efforts to be the perfect parent immediately after. Interestingly, they tried to be this mythical person in three distinct ways, convinced that they were on the right path.
