Resolutions for the Not-So-Perfect Parent


  • Forgive myself when I fail.
  • Ask for forgiveness when I mess up.
  • Seek out support from other moms or dads on hard days.
  • Let go of the guilt I feel.
  • Take time to run or quilt or whatever activity works for me to re-group when the parenting strain takes over.
  • Remember that my kids love me; even on days I’m a not-so-perfect parent.
