Mission KidsGoals -Loving Yourself as a Parent :))

Parenting is a difficult job at the best of times, isn't it?  Our children are so very precious, we want so badly to do it all perfectly for them!

It can be hard to come to terms with the fact that it's inevitable that we'll make some mistakes in our parenting. Mistakes that can harm our children's self esteem, for instance.
What to do?! It's such a dilemma. We could spend all day blaming ourselves and beating ourselves up for being imperfect. Much better though, to accept and love ourselves as we are and focus on those things we do RIGHT, and focus on doing more of those good things for our children.

So a little reminder for today - let's remember to love ourselves for all the wonderful things we do for our kids, love ourselves because we love them and they love us.
You love your kids! And just that deserves a big pat on the back, so please give yourself one right now!!!
