Dads and Perfection

Why dads don't feel the need for perfection

In honor of Father’s Day I decided to get a dad’s view on perfectionism. As mothers there is always this need to feel like we have to be perfect.  Do dads feel this same need? I interviewed my husband to see his take on feeling like he needs to be the perfect father. My husband’s name is Morgan and we have been together 16 years and married 11 years. We have 3 children together.

Trying to be Perfect at Everything

I use to be a perfectionist. I would drive myself crazy worrying about every little detail and trying to make everything just right. Not only did I drive myself crazy but I drove everyone around me crazy too. My kids had to have the perfect outfit, birthday and presents.
