Confessions from imperfect parents

Parenthood can be lonely. We can help each other by getting real. CNN Parents invites you to tell it like it is. Let’s share the mess-ups, the chaos and the struggles and triumphs of child rearing. This is a judgement-free zone.


What was the biggest surprise about parenthood? What scares you the most? Do you secretly want to hire an actor to sit in for you during parent-teacher conferences? What do you want future parents to know about being a mom or dad?


Post your personal essays and original photos, and tell us how it really is.
