#ParentingFail: Perfection Rejection

If you want to have hope, you’ve got to kick this idea of perfection to the curb. Perfectionism will make you miserable. Seriously. Because you can never do it. You can never achieve it. You’ll never get there. It’s a weight you can’t carry. Instead, it will become a burden that crushes you.

#ParentingFail: #DadFail

Maybe some dads feel like they’re really knocking it out of the park when it comes to the whole fatherhood thing. But I’m willing to bet that a whole lot more dads, if they’re honest with themselves, feel exactly like I do. You feel like a failure way more often than you feel like a success.

#ParentingFail: #MomFail

Your worth doesn’t come from your womb. Your worth, comes from Christ. When you know that your value comes from Christ, you become a conduit of grace for your kids, your grandkids, etc. You will leave a legacy that will outlive you.

#ParentingFail: Second Chance Parenting

Our failures are not our true identity. Our identity is hidden in the grace of Christ. He is our identity. It’s time for us to stop finding our true identity in parenthood. It doesn’t mean you don’t love your kids. It just means that you don’t expect them to provide your identity for you. And actually, that’s a great gift for you to give them because it takes a huge weight off of them.
