Reasons to be an imperfect parent:

  1. The Stepford wives were creepy.
  2. June Cleaver was boring.
  3. Nobody will like you.
  4. You give your children unreasonable expectations of themselves.
  5. Knowing that children learn best by watching what you do, you will never be able to teach them:
    -How to accept their own imperfections
    -How to take care of themselves emotionally when they need it.
    -How to forgive themselves
    -How to ask for forgiveness with dignity
    -How real-life relationships survive
  6. You're going to be one anyway, so you might as well have a positive attitude about it.
