Speaking of Gary Ezzo

Barbara Curtis at Mommy Life has a great post that is a must read, full of wisdom and insight regarding Gary Ezzo's teaching on parenting.

I'm looking forward to her follow-up post that will address how we as parents deal with the fact that we are fallible and --- gasp! --- make mistakes. As a family friend once told my parents, when they were feeling especially vulnerable about their ability to raise two teenagers and a younger child whose mission in life seemed to be to provide fodder for hilarious family stories, "If God had wanted your children to have perfect parents, don't you think He would have provided them?"
