As a parent, we do our best to raise our kids to be decent individuals. Even though there are tons of books on parenting, it’s just a role that you have to learn once your in it.
Some of the biggest mistakes that parents make is set the idea of who their child is in their heads versus learning who their child really is. Parents can have the thought that their child will get high marks in school like they did or become that all-star athlete like they were and it’s not fair. Parents also raise their children to be a certain way, obtain certain values and when that child goes astray, we sit and wonder “why?”.
Please do not take this post as me saying that we can’t set rules and the tone for the upbringing of our children. My point is that a certain point in the adolescent/young adult stage, we need to communicate with our kids. We need to understand their voice, likes/dislikes, how they see the world and thoughts about love, etc. Once this happens, your son or daughter will present their true selves to you. It doesn’t mean we have to agree or even like it, but we do have to show Respect to them.

Many parents don’t realize how vital their role is in their child(s) life. Being a parent is hard work, however, these little people are worth it. As parents, we have to teach, nourish and protect our little ones. The world is huge and mean, we have to help them be decent civilians. As a parent, we should speak Life, Health, and Success over our children. As we know, people will do their best to tear us down, so giving our children great esteem boosters will help them in those situations.
My son is the blessing that prayed for. My son has taught me how to be a mother and he’s also taught me things about myself and husband. Days like today, when I’m not feeling well, seeing him smile and cheer when I enter the room, makes my heart skip a beat.
Yes, I get overwhelmed. Yes the “terrible twos” are terrible. Yes, I constantly worry about his safety and well being. Yes, I’m constantly thinking “what am I doing? Or “am I a good mother?” Yes, everyday is a new day and adventure. Yes, he’s taught me to not compare children and that no two babies are alike. He has made me realize, the special privilege that I have of being his mother.
Parenting. Definitely hard work and can be stressful, but it’s worth it!
