The “P” in parenting isn’t for PERFECT it is for PRESENT! You need to be present for your child. Parenting is not all about playing tea parties, being at every PTA meeting making everything from scratch and only giving your child organic. Its about being PRESENT and active with your child the best way you know how.
I am not the lets sit and play doll house, I am the lets go and take a walk and have a talk. I don’t make the best cookies, BUT I give the best hugs. I cant go to all the school meetings BUT I make sure to have some check in conversations with my kid. What is important is the WANT TO factor.
Just this past week, simply by me being proactive, I changed the course of this semester for my kid in school and a few others, all it took was me being there and showing up and showing interest. That is all.
