I really can’t say enough good things about my 90 minutes Kathryn. Not because I’m instantly a better parent, but because I have some new tools/an approach to help me, and because I have a renewed attitude and outlook that’s helping me stay calm and
confident and not aim for perfection. One thing that she reiterated and I have to share is that we are not aiming for perfection. We’re aiming for good enough. It’s the 80/20 rule; you aim to get it right 80% of the time. I just love this and I love that she said it to me… thus why I’m saying it to you.
We often hold ourselves to crazy standards, and it flusters us (me) when our kids are not behaving the way we want them to… Anyway, I’m telling you this because it’s Friday and I’m sure we’re all a little tired, so I really just wanted to remind everyone (as I needed the reminder) that 80/20 is good enough! That's what I'm aiming for :-)
