Parental Mistakes

I remember reading, back in my college days, in Psychology Today that the average parent makes 40 mistakes a day in rearing his or her child. I figure if I make 39 mistakes today, I'm an above average parent.

Maureen, this is too funny.

I'll make it my new goal to keep the mistakes below 40! : )

Is that 40 times 7 kids?? Chrissy

Thanks. That helps. That 40 is an average, so that means some of us make more, some less. Hey, wait a minute, who rigged this up? Did someone follow parents all day with a check sheet, going Wrong, wrong, wrong all day? These people who do this sort of thing have too much time on their hands.

It was probably funded by a government grant. Too much money in their hands.
