Fact #1

There is no such thing as a perfect mother. There is no such thing as a perfect parent. All our children ask of us is to be good enough.

"The "good-enough mother" is a mother whose conscious and unconscious physical and emotional attunement to her baby adapts to her baby appropriately at differing stages of infancy, thus allowing an optimal environment for the healthy establishment of a separate being, eventually capable of mature object-relations."
