We don’t have to be perfect parents to be loving, caring, supportive parents. Our children should not have to be perfect to receive our affection and attention.
When we become more realistic in our expectations of ourselves and our children we can start to truly enjoy the gift that it is to be together and focus on building a relationship and a life full of meaningful moments.
This weekend, notice when you are expecting perfection and notice if you can simply instead accept mistakes, appreciate effort and then simply move on. Try to move into the next moment, without fixing, demanding, dissaproving, simply move on, into a space of acceptance, love, appreciation and connection.
Peace & Be Well,
