Kraft wants all the stressed out, exhausted parents out there to know that their kids think they’re doing a great job.

At least that’s the premise of its newly launched #FamilyGreatly campaign, which encourages parents to stop putting so much pressure on themselves to be perfect. The campaign’s message is based off of a survey of more than 1,000 parents and 1,000 children that found that eight out of ten parents feel pressure to be perfect, even though four out of five kids would rather have a “great” parent than a perfect one.

The crux of the campaign is a video that features real parents discussing the impossible standards they set for themselves when it comes to parenting. The ad opens with a mother admitting that she strives to be a perfect parent even though she knows no such thing exists. Later in the spot, another mom tearfully says that she always feels like her son deserves more than she can give him.

However, the testimonials from their children that follow tell a different story, as many of the kids talk about how great they think their parents are, with one young boy even eloquently describing his mother as having a “pure heart.”
