The wisdom of Mr. Rogers

If the day ever came when we were able to accept ourselves and our children exactly as we and they are, then, I believe, we would have come very close to an ultimate understanding of what "good" parenting means. 

It's part of being human to fall short 
of that total acceptance -- and often far short. 
But one of the most important gifts 
a parent can give a child 
is the gift of accepting that child's uniqueness.
