“…This is how you repay my kindness…” is one of the worst lines you can say to your child!
If your parent ever said something like that to you, let me tell you this:
It is not a job to be kind to your child, it is a privilege!
Every parent should shower their offspring with love and cuddles and hugs and laughter and so much more!
I know it can sometimes be difficult… parents and children clash, some more, some less but in the end think about what you have been like when you where a child. Probably just the same.
And only because your child does things differently from you, doesn’t mean it is wrong.
All roads lead to Rome, you know?!
Take me, for example:
My family abroad pretty much dislike me because I chose to do whats best for my children. Because my way of doing things is very different from theirs. It’s sad that is has always be like this but in the end I like to believe that they will come around.
My older children don’t like me very much either at the moment because I split up from their dad. Again I like to believe that in the end they will see and realise that this was the right decision for me and possibly for all of us.
Yes, there are things we don’t like about our children but the important thing is this:
We created a wonderful child that is perfect in his or her own way! And we love this child and that outweighs the tiny not so nice things.
No one is perfect. If that was the case, this would be a very boring world, don’t you think?
