By Marcia Brown, seen on
Take a look at any parenting magazine and you will see idealistic pictures of the “perfect” family. There are literally thousands of books and websites dedicated to helping parents with everything from arts and crafts to finding the right disciplinary style. You probably even know a mom or two that seem to always have it all together. With all these examples of perfection, it’s easy to find yourself suffering from a bad case of “mommy guilt”. Here are a few ways to minimize that.
  • Recognize that no one is THAT perfect. 
  • Accept your failings.
  • Work on your strengths. 
  • Find ways to fill in the holes.
  • Make small changes.
  • Forgive yourself.
