I am not a perfect parent. Let’s establish that. I really don’t believe such a person exists in real life. Because none of us are perfect, though some I think genuinely believe they are (lol). If your children make it through the day alive, that is pretty special right there. If they do so and have a bath and brush their teeth, bonus! If they do all that and clean their rooms, pretty incredible! And on top of that if they end up with high moral standards and independent minds, you are some sort of god or godess parent! But I am convinced within myself that parenting has much much less to do with how you parent than it does with how you live. And on top of that, I really feel strongly that it has much much more to do with how you pray.
