To me I definitely don't see my parents as perfect. Sure, they get close, but no parent is "perfect". I don't see perfect parenting as never doing anything to make your child mad or irritated with you, because no matter who you are you can't satisfy everyone. The perfect parents to me are parents who know when to care for you and know when to be there with you, but also know when to give you your space. Every parent will get mad and irritated with you and every child will get mad and irritated with the parents but unconditional love and support is what makes a parent perfect.
