I try to live a happy life with my child and hubby. Life isn’t always easy but we do our best to give our child what she needs. Food, clothes, happiness and lots of love.
We are trying to teach our daughter right from wrong, that being truthful and honest will get her far in life. She is outgoing and friendly and knows she can be anything she wants to be. She is a people person, if you want to see my daughter, ask. But don’t blame me because you never see her.
Someone said the other day, “kids are like sponges”. I believe this to be true from first hand experiences as I am sure all of us mothers have. My daughter remembers everything she hears. What is heard may not be repeated right away but eventually it is and I think “Wow!” She is going to go far. My Little Spongy Princess!
Raising children today is not the same as 10 or 20 years ago. Times change and so does everything else. I listen to what parents (moms) of all ages have to say about certain milestones of a growing child. I may not always agree with what people have to say, that is my choice. I can make my choices with or without help, it is always nice to hear what others do/done to know I am not far off. If I don’t take your advise, don’t be offended, what worked for you doesn’t always work for others. This does not make me a bad parent. Parenting is a learning experience. I am experiencing it at my own risk. I do know right from wrong.
Sometimes I yell, sometimes I yell a lot, But I am sure at one time or another we all have. I know it’s not just me. I just get tired of repeating myself constantly time after time when my child already knows she is in the wrong. Yet she continues to test us and see what she can get away with.
The way we teach or discipline our child should be acknowledged and followed by others who she is around. Just because we aren’t there, doesn’t mean she should be allowed to do things she doesn’t do with us. As a child we were spanked with a belt, wooden spoon or a hand. I wouldn’t do that to my child and would hope no one she is in care with would either. If it happened, I would know, she likes to talk and to me that is a good thing. We have a strong bond that can’t be broken.
My child doesn’t lie and I don’t want her to start, she’s a sponge, what goes in comes out. Don’t tell her lies, so that I have to explain that it isn’t true and why someone would do that when I hear her say something that is not right. She is her own person, She knows what she likes and doesn’t like, you can’t tell her what to do, especially if it is something she does not want to do. She will not do it.
Don’t judge unless you want to be judged yourself.
This is not meant to offend anyone, it is not about you, it is about us and our family and staying happy.!
