You’ll often hear me say that it takes a village to raise a child and that it’s an unfair expectation for a parent to place upon themselves to know, be and do it all….and yet lots of us still try to achieve perfection. As a recovering perfectionist I would ask you to be kind and have some self compassion. Cut yourself some slack.
