¿Realmente existen los padres perfectos? La perfecciOn es el enemigo de la crianza de los hijos. Es admirable que lleguen a ser los mejores mamAs y papAs que puedan ser para sus hijos. Pero a veces al hacerlo, dejan de lado la gracia, tanto para si mismos como para sus hijos. Podemos convertirnos en padres fariseos, citando reglas interminables y estableciendo estAndares imposibles de alcanzar. Pero Dios no quiere que seamos perfectos, ni tampoco nuestros hijos lo necesitan. Como padres, estamos llamados a hacer nuestro mejor esfuerzo. Y cuando fallamos, tenemos la obligaciOn de volver a intentarlo. Aunque Jim es el presidente de Focus on the Family, no promete que este libro serA un catalizador para una familia perfecta. Pero puede guiar el camino hacia una buena familia, que se sienta segura y acogedora, llena de amor y sonrisas. Este libro animarA a madres y padres a aceptar el caos de la paternidad y mostrar gracia a sus hijos aunque no sean perfectos. Daly guiarA a mamAs y papAs hacia una mejor comprensiOn de lo que es ser una buena familia. Perfection is the enemy of parenting. Jim Daly sees and hears from mothers and fathers trying hard to pursue perfection. They listen to the best experts and read all the right books. When someone gives them a "World's Best Mom" or "No. 1 Dad" coffee mug, they want it to be true. And they want their children to pursue perfection, too. It's admirable for parents to be the very best moms and dads they can be for their children. But sometimes in so doing, they leave grace behind—both for themselves and their children. Jim believes that our quest for perfection, a quest that he believes is particularly strong among Christians, runs counter to God's own boundless gift of grace. We can become Pharisaical parents, quoting endless rules and holding everyone to impossible standards. But God doesn't want us, and our kids don't need us, to be perfect. As parents, we're called to simply do our best. And when we fail—which we will—we're called to try again tomorrow. Though he's the President of Focus on the Family, Jim does not promise that his book will be a catalyst for a perfect family. But it can help point the way toward a good family—one that feels safe and warm; one filled with love and laughter. This book will encourage mothers and fathers to embrace the messiness of parenthood and show grace to their own less-than-ideal children. Jim, through his own experiences, expertise, and array of stories, will lead both moms and dads to a better understanding of what being a good family is all about.
