So, do you tell your children they are perfect just as they are or do you remind them no one is perfect and that is what makes us all unique and special?
The reason i ask, I told my daughter all 3 of my kids are perfect and she said no one is perfect. I explained to her that everything, good, bad, indifferent, is what makes her perect in my eyes yet I could see the wheels spinning in her wonderful head how perfection could be more complex and individualized....Which made me wonder if telling my children they are perfect is in some sense setting them up for an unrealistic approach to life subconciously.
I know this is kinda "deep" in thought, and was curious what other moms' thoughts were on the subject.
