Feeling Like a Parenting Failure

Oh Man! Me too sometimes! The Love and Logic system is not about assured outcomes. The Declaration of Independence says we have the right to "pursue" health and happiness but not everybody has those things. I can't give those things to my children.

Our job as parents is not to make our children happy. It is to be leaders in our own home providing the right environment for success. That might mean providing opportunities for our children to be "unhappy."
