Imperfection is a Part of Life for Parents and Children

“Nobody’s perfect” is a phrase we have all heard before to try and get us to calm down. When we make mistakes it can be really frustrating, and it is easy to get down on yourself. Never forget that imperfection is part of the beauty of life. As parents we are going to make mistakes. As long as you accept your mistakes as a learning experience and move on everything will be okay. If you lose your cool and yell at your child; just make sure that you apologize to them for your actions. You should teach them as they grow that nobody is perfect, and that includes you. You will make mistakes as a parent, and they will also make mistakes as your child. It is all a part of the loving, family relationship that you will develop.

A post titled, “It’s a Good Thing You’re Not Perfect!” gave me the idea to share my thoughts on imperfection in parenting with you. The post talks about how it is a good thing that people are not perfect, and I agree wholeheartedly.
