The Fallacy of Perfect Parenting
820 Manning Avenue North
The pressures to be perfect result in some parents feeling overwhelmed and inadequate. Many parents complain of a lack of control in their own homes and a feeling that their children’s needs run the household. They may remove barriers to success and end up unintentionally disempowering their children. They may try to be their child’s best friend, losing focus of the primary responsibility, to raise a fully functioning adult. In this session, we will normalize what parents experience, how they learn to be parents, and we will explore Pia Mellody’s concepts regarding affirming, nurturing, and setting limits.
