Making mistakes is okay. I was sitting talking with Lori about parents and why they are a certain way. We both agree that it is because parents do not want to make mistakes.
I say "Make the mistakes. Not only does it let your children know that no one is perfect it will also help them realize it is okay to make mistakes."
I figure I am going to make them so I might as well talk about everything with my kids and let them know that it is okay.
When they were little they looked up to me and thought I was perfect. Now they realize that I make mistakes just like everyone else.
So have fun and remember no one is perfect!
