3.) A perfect mom knows parenting is hard, so she does not buy in to quick fixes or short-term solutions to her parenting challenges.

5.) A perfect mom is a woman who will not give up on her children.
6.) A perfect mom is someone who has failures and flaws, and knows she does not want her children to mimic them (if they really are that bad). She knows that her children will make their own mistakes, but she will still teach right from wrong in her house.
7.) A perfect mom is someone who is present and available when her children need her no matter the time of day or night.

10.) A perfect mom is a woman who knows her role is about giving-giving lessons, giving love, giving constructive criticism, giving security-and she does not worry about her gain in return, yet she knows that what she will receive is the comfort and peace knowing that she gave all she had for the ones she loved…no matter what anyone else thinks about how she did it.
