So, you're probably asking yourself, what is this site all about? Well, it's probably best if we start from the beginning. Way back in August
1962, a talented young group at MIT envisioned
a globally interconnected set of computers through
which everyone could quickly access data and
programs from any site.... wait, that's going
too far back. Let's leap ahead to 2002, when we realized after spending countless
hours going from parenting site to parenting
site that they all seemed to be derivative of
one another. Same after same dry articles, community
forums with "unobjectionable" topics,
some with moderators so heavy-handed and politically
correct that it made active debate fruitless.
We thought there needed to be a place where parents could
exercise their minds, and get together to discuss
and debate the topics that affect our lives.
Hence, the Imperfect Parent was born.
name Imperfect Parent came from the disgust
of being constantly preached to on how to be
the perfect parent, and what we were doing wrong.
As we are all flawed human beings, it is logical
that we may be imperfect parents. We monitor
the success of our parenting skills by the obvious
happiness and emotional attachment to our children,
not by some book's chart of the ideal "emotional
quotient". When our kid says, "I love
you" when we tuck him in at night, we feel
we're doing a damn good job. What we've done
here is gathered articles and columns written
by parents like yourself, with the intent of
either making you think or making you laugh.
A community was created for parents to talk
freely and openly without big brother watching.
The articles were designed to
share parenting experiences and to let you know
that you're not alone with your flaws and imperfections.
So, come on in and stay with us awhile. Read
a bit, debate a bit, and above all, have fun!
"Try as hard as we may for perfection, the net result of our labors is an amazing variety of imperfectness. We are surprised at our own versatility in being able to fail in so many different ways." -- Samuel McChord Crothers
