So, here’s my question for all you seasoned parents out there. What do you do with a child who tends toward perfectionism? They resist doing anything they can’t do perfectly, they are devastated when they make mistakes and crushed when they are corrected (even when the correction is no big deal at all). I realize the problem is both in my parenting and in their personality so I’m open to advice either way. Can anyone relate? Got any tips?
DON’T FORGET! My own little meme attempt called “Things I Love Thursday” starts tomorrow. Tomorrow’s theme is Children’s Picture Books which means when you come back here tomorrow, I’ll tell you what my favorite children’s picture book is and then you can tell me yours and then hopefully we’ll create a super duper list of the best, parent-tested, tried-and-true children’s picture books of all time! So check back tomorrow and join in!
