Dr. Kathy elaborates on the following topics:
- How parents can overcome the “perfection infection” and have high expectations and high standards without requiring perfectionism.
- Five ideas to help parents have realistic standards for their children: grieve what isn’t, accept what is, reject the lies, embrace the truth, and work on what you can.

- How resiliency in life is pertinent; spiritual resiliency in our relationship with God can help us through many of life’s difficulties.
