It’s actually good to let your children see your imperfection.
But not all the time
A Wise Balance
I think that there is wisdom in allowing your kids to see the full continuum of your personality and your emotions. Too much of either extreme, however, can be harmful to your kid’s emotional wellbeing.
I see so many parents who are afraid of getting angry, silly, or perhaps even crying in front of their kids. This really is not a problem. The problem is when our extreme emotions become the norm. Like the parent who’s always flying off the handle, always crying, or always doing something inappropriate or just plain silly.
Your kids need to see you angry once in a while. But they need to see controlled anger. There are times to cry or be silly. But life is about balance. This balance is the best way to bring emotional health to your kids.
