Being a parent is hard! They don’t, but I wish babies came with a manual! So we would know what to do, how to do it and when to do it!
We love our beautiful little babies, toddlers, kids, teens, and adults! We love them at all stages!! I always felt my biggest job was to get them ready for the big, bad world! I felt they needed to work hard, to be responsible and to be independent! How do you do that!!! I do know it is not easy! But one thing I felt strongley about was to make them responsible. I knew they would make mistakes–we all do! Holy cow I make mistakes all the time — especially as a parent! But I wanted them to take responsibility for their mistakes and learn from them. I love my children and love to think they are perfect. To me they are wonderful but to the rest of the world, not always so much. I want them to know that their life is made up of their choices — sometimes good, sometimes not. I saw this posting today and thought it would be helpful to me and maybe to you!
