I remember the first time I became a Gp 11ys ago and having 3 children who had escaped the majority of life's major pitfalls I though I was going into the role with experience and knowledge. However you must take into consideration that things change. My Midwife and medical advice constantly warned of the perils of putting my child on its back and that my child would be harmed and contribute to SIDS . like all parents my nightmares and worry became ingrained and I dutifully followed an panicked if anybody put baby on there front. With my GD the advice had changed so what had been ingrained in me as the right thing to do was now a thing that was the worst thing I could do.
Now all reasonable people would say things change and I agree, but be prepared to have to tie your hands and fret when there is a big change. You are doing something that for years you where told was the worst thing ever, add this to the fact that every child has at sometime been ill and you start to think maybe that was something that I did wrong but I thought I was doing it right. With my 2GC, some of the advice is completely changed again, but I don't fret because I now know that I am experienced yes, but am as new to the knowledge game as the parents.
Being a GP can be amazing and My 11yr old GD has become a little adult who I can share such wonder experiences and love.
