No matter how much we want to believe it… we aren’t perfect. Dad… you’re not Superman! Mom… you’re not Wonder Woman! Are you ready to admit your weakness?
Your teens already know you’re not perfect… but when you’re finally up front about your faults, you’ll actually build your relationship. Your son and daughter are daily surrounded by voices that tell them they don’t measure up. And when you get on his or her level and admit your own imperfection… you’re doing two things.
First, you’re helping your teen feel comfortable in his own skin. And second, you’re teaching him how to have a confident, but realistic, assessment of himself.
Being imperfect is okay. And it doesn’t hurt to admit it!
