The 51% Principle

by Scott Noelle

On your parenting journey, remember that 100% perfection is not required for success. In fact, 51% is enough to guarantee progress.

And as a leading-edge parent, progress is success. There is no final state of perfection; you’ll always be progressing.

Just as an election can be won with only 51% of the vote, you’ve got lots of room for error. So just relax and look for ways to emphasize and focus on what is working. :)
