(Less than) Perfect Parents is dedicated to moms and dads who try to be perfect but who can laugh at themselves when they fall a little short of that goal. Yes, we feed our kids healthy most of the time, we limit screen time, we play with them, read to them, redirect instead of screaming BUT we also lose our cool sometimes. There are moments when we hand them some candy and plop them in front of the television just have five minutes of peace and quiet! That’s okay as long as they know we love them!
I’ll be listing great recipes, crafts, parenting ideas, activities, and more. I’d also like this to be a place that parents can talk about their failings (which aren’t really failings as much as being a human being) without judgment. Allowing ourselves to be human, to be less than perfect takes a huge pressure off our kids to be perfect. As much as I want my child to be successful, I want him to be truly happy even more.
