Parenting Perfectionistic Kids
"One of the best and most effective ways parents can help their children be less perfectionistic is to be less perfectionistic themselves…parents can speak openly about their disappointments and short-comings in a non-defensive and problem-solving focused manner as a way to provide great modeling for their children. It’s also important that parents help their children remember the big picture. Kids need to know that one failure is not a disaster and that they are more than their success or failure at one goal."
In the second of her three-part podcast from SAS, Dr. Kathryn Byars discusses strategies for parenting perfectionistic kids.
