I read the best thing the other day. It was a post by The Holistic Psychologist. The psychologist is also known as Dr. Nicole LePera.

She said we should promote “Good Enough Parenting” and that “The truth is that no parent could ever meet all of the emotional needs of their child. None of us leave childhood unscathed and that’s OK.”
