Smashwords Interview

What are the most common needs of any parent?
I think all parents need to realize that they are not alone in their imperfection. No matter how prepared you think you are, parenting has a way of throwing you curve balls. One of the best ways to deal with these is to learn from others who have been in similar situations and who can offer their wisdom and insight.
When you interviewed other parents, were there any surprises about what was "missing" from their parental “playbook” or surprises in general?
Parenting is a nonstop activity. And sometimes it takes all you have to get through a minute, an hour or a day. When you are dealing with an issue, especially when it relates to your child, you may know that something isn't right or that there is a bigger issue to analyze, but you just don't have the time because you are so busy keeping up with all the tasks of living. As parents spoke with me during the interviews, there were several occasions where they started to work through an issue on a much deeper level than they had previously and hadn’t even realized it until we sat down to talk.
