No Such Thing as “Perfect” (5-20-14)

Today’s Parenting Tip:

DECIDE:    There is no such thing as “perfect.” 

PRACTICE:    Pay attention to when you use the word perfect.

When you catch yourself saying these words, stop and think, “Really?”

Can an event really be perfect? Can a person really be perfect?  Can anything a person does really be done perfectly?

Today’s Decide and Practice daily parenting tip was inspired by our featured picture book, IF I CROSSED THE ROAD.  Read the book to a child in your life each day as a reminder of what you are deciding and practicing that day.

Come back each day for another good parenting decision and how to practice it. (Each day’s activity will also be posted on the Daily Parenting Tips page for easy access.)
