to the perfect parents
Dear Perfect Parent,
I have a few things I'd like to share with you today. I want to commend your efforts at being the perfect parent, because it's not somethings we all aspire to be in life. You believe in the depths of your being that you are doing everything exactly right, and that you have a thing or two you can teach the rest of us.
You are decidedly the best example about breastfeeding or formula feeding, when to start your child on solid food, when to send your child to preschool and kinergarten. Oh! Let's not forget about extra activities like soccer, dance, music lessons, and swimming. You most assuredly make time for your child to do it all. God forbid a parent choose themselves over their child wants.
Do you sense my sarcasm yet? I hope so, and I hope you'll join me in doing the following...
No more shaming.
No more blaming.
No more judging.
START supporting others.
Let's get our views of perfection straight and get them in check. They are ruining amazing mom/dad friend opportunities. Let's not assume that someone is shaming, blaming, or judging us. Instead, let us assume that the perfect parents are all of us and that we all want to support one another.
Let’s do this parenting thing y’all!
