So many parents are obsessed with making the perfect decisions in parenting and with getting their children to make perfect decisions. It comes out in your lectures and your nagging, and yelling. This attitude often harms your relationship with your children and in your marriage. Remember that parenting is a journey. You will continue to grow and so will your partner. Your children are on their own journey. You have to teach and set boundaries and guide them, but you cannot take over their journey. Your journey is enough to take on.
