The Victoria Beckham kiss controversy shows once again the pressure parents are under to be “perfect.” It is right and proper that parents are able to ask questions of each other, but this type of over the top and critical response is not only bad for Victoria, but for all parents. We need each other to sharpen our parenting skills. Sadly the type of pressure to remain perfect is what makes so many of us as parents defensive about parenting and therefore not open to learning from each other.

Who would you trust to ask loving questions about your parenting?

Do you give yourself permission to not be perfect as a parent?

(For the record…I don’t think Mrs Beckham did anything wrong.)
