Today's Tip - "Good Enough" Moms

I don't normally read every piece of a magazine in fact just the opposite, I usually just flip several pages at once, but for some reason, this caught my eye and I'm glad it did.
It's on the front page of this month's parents magazine.
Q&A with Alice Domar Ph.D.

Why do you believe kids do better when they have a "good enough" mom?

They need to learn that it's okay not to be great at everything. We should let our children see how we handle failure and disappointment and we should tell that sometimes it's just more important to play Trouble for the sixth time that day instead of making sure that the whole house is spotless! In general, a good mother is someone who doesn't expect perfection in either herself or her children, and who tries to balance her own needs with the needs of everyone in the family.

I thought this little tidbit of advice was worthy of passing on!
