Truth is, the qualities of patience, love, healthy communication, empathy, supportiveness, consistency, problem-solving skills, good judgment, and a sense of humor are just some of the many traits that makes one a good parent.
As parents, we often set unrealistic expectations for ourselves, that we usually fail to meet, and then end up feeling like bad parents. On such days, it is important to remember that one parent may excel at some qualities while being weak in others, and that’s completely okay.
Society tells us that parenthood is one of the most difficult, yet rewarding things to do. It also tells us that there are many different ways to be a good parent. Each family can have their own culture, patterns, and rituals.
