5. There is no such thing as a perfect parent. While we all strive to be the best possible parent that we can be for our children we all make mistakes. It is a part of human nature. Being a parent is a life long learning experience. At some point every parent will have a moment when they feel like they have failed. However, there will be several more moments where you know that you have been a great parent. As long as your child is happy and you have done everything in your power to keep your child as healthy and safe as possible, then you have done your job, you have been a great parent. And I will take a great parent over a perfect parent any day.
