Huge Mistakes Every Parent Makes


We’ve all been there as parents, realizing that what were doing is probably going to ruin our kids lives…okay that may be an exaggeration, but in the moment it feels like it! Fortunately our kids are flexible and they tend to recover quickly from our big mistakes, but are there mistakes that we make that we can and should avoid? We all want our kids to experience a pain free, problem free childhood where we can permanently fix any issue and set them up for a perfect future, but is that what’s really best for them?

One of the fun ways we want to engage together during #HugeMistakesEveryParentMakes is to see and hear your “huge parenting mistakes” on social media.

Here’s how to enter:

  1. Take a photo
  2. Caption it
  3. Tag it with the official series hashtag #HugeMistakesEveryParentMakes.

On May 21st we’ll announce one winner who has the “best” huge mistake and they will receive a Parents Gift Bundle, which includes the book 12 Huge Mistakes Parents Can Avoid by Tim Elmore, and dinner for two on us!
