PODCAST SCRIPT:

When I tell parents “don’t be perfect” …they sometimes come back at me and say, “Well, of course I’m not perfect!”

I’m not ignorant of the fact that we all have deep flaws.  No one is perfect.  But I meet too many moms and dads who like to act like they’ve got it all together.  Or… worse yet… demand that their teens have it all together!  The standards are so high that no human can reach them… especially no awkward, gawky teenager!

So… when I tell you “don’t be perfect” …think about what you’re expecting of others.  Are you ready to walk away if your son makes a mistake?  Are you worried that a misstep in your daughter’s behavior will reflect poorly on you?

Cut ‘em a little slack.  Give yourself some slack!  No one is perfect!
