  • There is no such thing as a "perfect mother" we all do our best and give what we can to the best of our ability but no one is perfect, and that is okay.

  • I think the perfect mother is one who does her best and loves her kids. She sees them for who they really are - "warts and all" - instead of seeing them as these perfect, never make mistakes little robots, because she knows that nobody is perfect - not her, not her kids, not her so, nobody, and that's ok. Because you don't have to be perfect to be loving and to deserve love.

  • no such thing as the perfect mother. we are going to make mistakes. All that we can do, is love our children unconditionally, show them respect and teach them respect and values. Talk to them, play with them, laugh with them, take care of them. If youre married, show them how you love their father so that when they grow up they know what a healthy relationship is supposed to be like and not fall prey to an abuser.

  • well "perfect" is just an illusion something to make you aim higher...that being said to be the best mom you possibly can be is to just never give up, always give your all, love whole heartedly, live in the moment, and enjoy EVERY BIT YOU CAN!
