Most parents want the best for their children. Of course, it is good to try to help them reach their full potential, but there is often a fine line between that and expecting too much. Nobody is perfect, so we should learn to celebrate the successes and not worry about the rest. If we strive for love and trust rather than perfection, we will form lifelong bonds that will keep us together through anything.
Happy parenting!—And for those doubly blessed, happy grandparenting!
