Perfectionism is believing that by doing something perfectly, other people will admire and accept us, but if we cant, well never be good enough.   Being perfect is not about doing our best, and is a burden that can be painful and debilitating.  Personal relationships become strained, intimacy is elusive, work may seem overwhelming, and physical exhaustion is common.  By being parents, we naturally influence our children's emotional development.  Unfortunately, our own attitudes about love, success, acceptance and failure can create an atmosphere that promotes perfectionism.  However, we can make positive changes that will enrich our children's lives, and our own.  In this pioneering book, Tom Greenspon explains perfectionism, where it comes from (including influences outside the family), and what to do about it.  He describes a healing process for transforming perfectionism into healthy living practices and self-acceptance.  If you think your child may be a perfectionist if you've ever wondered if you're a perfectionist this book is for you.

Trudy Ludwig delivers a story about real kids and real situations occurring everyday.  In this book, Charlie, Jack's friend, has learned that one magic word can get him out of almost any jam.  If you get caught, just say you're sorry.  Even though it makes Jack feel bad, Charlie's flip and insincere apologies get by most people until Charlie ruins a classmate's science fair project and Jack stands by to watch.  Jack and Charlie learn their lesson when a teacher makes them prove their apology by actually doing something.  The book is great for motivating children to think the sincerity of their words when making apologies or in their interactions with friends; but it also encourages adults to keep kids accountable for the authenticity of their words.
