Perfect Parenting — 8 Comments

  1. Thank you, Barbie, for such a timely reminder! As a recovering perfectionist ;-), I have to tell myself to relax and not make such a big deal out of everything. Crazy how small things seem to be SO important when the kids first come – until you hit the bigger challenges! Hugs, MIKI

  2. I enjoyed your post tonight. This line really grabbed my attention…
    it is my responsibility to help my children become productive adults, not perfect human beings.

    This really speaks to me right now and is very timely for me as a parent. I've realized that my son may make different choices than me, have different loves than me, excel in different areas than me, etc. but that doesn't make me love him any less or any less proud to be his Mom.

  3. Hi again Baribe,

    Great post! I love your honesty and the way you write. I wonder if this controlling thing goes along with motherhood. I too was a very easy going carefree person until I started raising my kids. Then I became over concerend for them. I think some of it has to do with pride. 🙂
    Thanks for sharing.
