When a child is born, a mother also is born.
We all here probably agree that young mothers are happier than teen mothers.
Well may be young mothers are tired 24×7, and all the other things we read on social media, but they have children who listen to them (Or do they?)
My teen age started when my elder one was 14 (I think).
If I say, “We were lost as parents”, it will be an understatement. Lost is nothing compared to what we were. There were suddenly so many things we didn’t know how to manage, with respect to a daughter who up until then always listened to us. Suddenly a big loud NO started exiting her room even before we speak. It did wonders to our moods. We were always angry and shouting.
One such day, d/d labelled us worst parents of the Universe. We were so heart broken, hurt, angry and tired and not in control of the situation that we both too ended fighting with each other. Those fights kept the fire on!!! 😉
All this when the younger one was completely being ignored. She enjoyed those years she says now so that guilt of ignoring her is off my chest.
The time was tough, we survived somehow with each other’s support.
The funny thing about children is – they might be the reason we lose it, but they are the reason we hold it too. The heart swells with love and pride each time we look at them.
If I would have been fortunate enough to find this website and support group then, my blog today might have been a different one.
This is magic and members here are magicians. Thankful to our admins who thought of starting such a support group website.
Found this on net but had to write here…
After all this parenting I think I will become a hostage negotiator. Seems less stressful.
