We can strive to be perfect parents, but is that realistic or healthy?
Perfect Parenting vs Good Enough Parenting
There are often pre-set expectations about what sort of parent we would like to be. There are pressures of what other parents are doing, and how the effect of comparing to that can affect us. Family, friends, social media and other sources can feed our judgement of how good a parent we might be. This workshop looks at what ‘perfect parenting’ is perceived to be, where the ideas come from, why it is impossible to have everything in our control, and why we need to have a reason or justify ourselves if something isn’t perfect. It explains why perfect parenting isnt realistic, and may not actually be the best thing for our children. It gives a guide on what ‘good enough’ parenting looks like, what that means, and why this is a healthy approach.
