Once we reached the chapter of marriage.. most of us are blessed to open another chapter that is parenting. It is truly a challenge, especially when there are still small and needed our attention… and can be a stressful when they grow up as teenagers. No matter what their age, how they behave, how challenging, how stressful they can be.. there are still our children.. and when they grow up.. being adult.. married.. taller than us.. successful than us.. there are still our children.
Parenting is a learning experience, if there are a system on dealing with children .. it will never works the same for every parents.. why? Because our children are different.. some are blessed with naturally smart, talkative, hyperactive, slow, gifted and some are just special.
There are hard and difficult times in parenting and I am sure you have been in a situation where you need a ‘remote control’ .. just to pause that moment..or fast forward.. just to do anything to fix the situation … or just say a magic word ‘hoodia‘ ‘hoohaa’ anything and it will be alright.
I believe a mother easily attached to their child’s emotion, it is easier for a mother to make a child listen and because mother make it in a creative way. Being a mother myself, i understand my hyperactive/sensitive son and talkative daughter’s needs.. when they angry..when they need attention. There are books on how to deal with children.. and again.. there are not the same with every child.. The best think to learn is to analyze your child.. one by one.. to make them listen to you.. you have to think the way their think..not the way you think.
And if you learn something about new on how to about handling children, share it with your spouse, parenting is not only a mother’s responsibility but both husband and wife. We all make mistakes but we never learned unless we try.
Happy children comes from creative parenting.. all the best!
