Ep. 183 Being a “Perfect” Parent, with Special Guest, Monica Packer

“You can have it all”, we’re told, as if it were the best prize ever. So we shoot for it and try to hold all the balls in the air and beat ourselves up when we discover that it’s hard to live up to society’s standards. Today, Monica and I talk about perfectionism in our parenting, how it affects our kids, how to identify unhealthy tendencies in our kids, and when they point out our mistakes. (Sometimes in very harsh ways). 

Our approach to such struggles makes all the difference in our level of parenting happiness, and today’s episode will help you pivot where you may not have even seen needs. xoxo

About my guest: My name is Monica Packer. I’m a recovering perfectionist, podcaster, and Progress Coach. I save women from themselves, by helping them ditch perfectionism, step into their gifts, and move towards real progress. Welcome to a community who knows life is about progress, not perfection!

Hi, there. I’m Heather.

I can teach you how to give up the guilt and improve your relationship with your teen or young adult. I am trained to listen to my clients in a unique way and locate the root of the problem. I never tell you what you should do, but rather help you see more clearly so that you can decide what is best for you.
