What is a PCS epidemic you might ask? Well, parents, you can ask your child because according to you, they are perfect and could never do any wrong. PCS stands for Perfect Child Syndrome. Now I recognize that not all parents have PCS, but there are always a small handful that do. If you do suffer from Perfect Child Syndrome, here are a couple of strategies to help you overcome your problem...
1. Get over yourself. Your child is NOT perfect and by all means YOU are probably FAR from perfect, so just accept reality.
2. Be honest with yourself and others. Lying to the teacher's face about your "perfect" child doesn't do any good but make the teacher realize they REALLY can't trust you!
3. Realize that when you are suffering from PCS, all you are really doing is teaching your child to be a spoiled brat. And guess what...when spoiled brats grow up and have kids, they too often suffer from PCS causing a never ending cycle!
4. Don't be an idiot.
