Perfectly Imperfect Parenting
As moms and dads, our parenting journeys can surprise us with plenty of unexpected twists and turns. Plot twists like breakups, shared custody, blended families, infertility, adoption — or even the challenge of a seemingly endless global pandemic — can catch us off guard and make us feel alone, even though millions of moms and dads are managing similar issues.
We’d love to hear your “perfectly imperfect” parenting story. What unexpected challenges have you overcome as a mom or dad, and how have they helped you become a better parent? What triumphs and hard-fought lessons have you taken away from the coronavirus pandemic? On a humorous note, have you ever had to cut a corner or find a shortcut to take care of something — and did things somehow work out even better as a result? Please share your stories with us because we really are all in this together!
Disclosure: This TODAY Parenting Team challenge is being brought to you in concert with the reboot of the ‘80s sitcom “Punky Brewster” on the free tier of NBCUniversal’s Peacock streaming service. ("Perfectly imperfect parenting” is a such major theme of that show!) Peacock shares the same parent company with TODAY and the TODAY Parenting Team.
