“the goal is not to be perfect parents but its to become progressively less stupid parents!” – Dr Marshall Rosenberg
Excerpt from Raising Children Compassionately
Before I start reading the book, I must admit, the goal was to be a perfect parent to my child, but Dr Marshall puts it out for me – we just can’t be perfect! He faces the same challenges like all parents do. It is odd how we know we can’t be perfect yet we can’t stop striving to be one.
Still – it is definitely a better goal than perfect – be progressively less stupid!
Now.. I think that will be call wisdom, isn’t it?
