With these simple words a new world of parenting opens. There is no such creature as the perfect parent. The impossible nature of trying to raise and develop individual lives is daunting at the best of times. Yet, throughout the generations there is one constant at the heart of parenting - a willingness to learn and develop, to connect with our children, and to grow with them.
Becoming the Perfectly Imperfect Parent is a unique look into how we connect with our children and the impacts those interactions produce. By appreciating our children’s needs and potential we become more responsive to them. We build strong relationships and secure attachments which will ensure our children become the best version of themselves.

Understanding these theories will strengthen the familial bonds as you apply them to your daily lives.
The purpose of Perfectly Imperfect Parenting is to focus on how parents can and should support long term social and emotional development while boosting wellbeing and resilience and building independence of character. Though not academic, this book serves as the evidence-based guidance every parent needs.
Your relationship with your child will always be central to their development. Perfectly Imperfect Parenting is simple, practical, accessible and effective. Parenting is one of the most challenging and rewarding parts of life. Most of us try our best.
