  • To accept that your child is not perfect, nor is any child/person perfect. Accept that they will make mistakes and these mistakes are part of the learning process in life. Support them in their ups and downs.

  • I think something that would be nice to have is the super power to be able to get a full nights rest by taking a 30 minute nap! I know for myself if I'm lacking in sleep that everything else suffers....I have little patience, and not much of a sense of humor.
    So yeah...the super power to take power naps would be my choice for the perfect quality.
