Today one thing is on my mind. It’s about all of the unintentional modeling we do. The modeling of imperfection. The modeling of poor parenting. The modeling of rushed decisions.
2010-08-17 - Tuesday Thoughts - Modeling Imperfection
When I think about the parent I strive to be, it doesn’t usually include many flaws or mistakes. It’s a strong, caring, flexible, resilient state of mind, that I have to keep reminding myself includes feelings like embarrassment. Emotions that include anger, frustration and at times sadness. Words like “I’m sorry. I’ll work on it.”


And the silver lining to it all? As we model, even all the imperfection that we each hold in ourselves, we are still teaching. Not how to do things wrong…but how real life is. How real life feels. How to deal with real life. And at times…how not to.


I can remember our elementary school principal saying “Give yourself a pat on the back” at the end of every assembly (I haven’t even thought of that word in ages!). And all of us kids would giggle and smirk and stretch our arm as long as we could while patting ourselves literally. Today I’m going to do that just that. Smile, laugh and pat myself on the back. Mind joining me?
