Everyone sucks at something
Accepting our limitations - and our kids' - is part of growing up together.
Adele Hamilton, Editor Parent24
'I suck at writing neatly,' says my son with a sigh.

It's a frustration for him, because no matter how he tries to be slow and neat, his work never looks as tidy as it could.

I sympathise. No-one is good at everything. As a parent I struggle with acting bitchy when I'm in a hurry.

And it's okay to have flaws, as a parent and as a person. We just need to show love and tolerance, for ourselves as much as for our children.

Other parents suck sometimes too: Are you parent-ready? | Dad slips up | Smelly mom loses cool
