Successful parents don’t aim for “perfect”. Instead, they aim for “better”. They allow room for their children to slip up. They lift up their children through their kind and encouraging words and actions. Children who are allowed to learn from their mistakes grow up to become smarter, more confident.
If you aim for “perfect”, it might become a problem. You will feel tense at the slightest indication that things are not working out as you wish. Your heart will be full of anxiety and worry everyday, thinking “I should have done this, I shouldn’t have done that. My child should have done this, and shouldn’t have done that.” Hope is a powerful tool to raise your children. Charge your “hope battery” everyday. Become better and happier. Replace your worry and anxiety with hope and optimism. This is the mindset that every parent deserve to have.
