Have you ever thought writing a letter to tell your child what he should know and read it in years later at the time when he can understand?
The days are long. The years are short. I bring you to this world to travel through a journey even though I never know you can get a wonderful trip. You might hurt along the journey. But I want to let you know that home is where you can go as you are and not be questioned. Nothing you do could ever cause me to love you less than 100%. I’m blessed to get this privilege to be part of your journey....
One day, I asked my kid the result of his school test as I was curious about why the teacher took so long to give marks. He repeatedly told me that he hadn’t obtained the test result yet. I doubted he was intentionally hiding something. And then I found out he lied to me. He confessed telling me that he worried I would no longer love him because he failed the test. How come he gets the idea that my love for him has the condition?
Children need continuous flow of love
Children need love like the flower need water. The parents matter most to them to be their whole world. They thirst for your full attention and affection to ensure you love them more than anyone else.
When my child was 5 years old…
When he came back home from school, he couldn’t wait to call and find mommy. Mommy was the first person he wanted to see at home.
Whenever I was reading books or sat on the couch watching TV, he felt perfectly happy and secured to sit beside me doing nothing.
If someone bullied against him, he would upset and told me "John beat me" or "Susan was yelling at me", or "Peter was bad". I was his protector, liked a big tree to protect him from the storm and rain.
When he felt he did something great, he couldn’t wait to show me his work and shared his joy of achievement. He was looking for my appreciation.
The child might non-stop talking about whatever happened to him in school. He was trying to tell he trusted you because he regarded you as his biggest supporter and pacifier.
Don’t put your job ahead your family
The greatest gift you can give your loved ones is your time. Make time for the ones you love. If you don’t prioritize your life, someone else will. If you want a career, you have to sacrifice family time? If you want a family life, you have to sacrifice your career? In fact, your children are not the distraction of important work. They are the important work. If you’re a career mom and the nine-to-five, Monday to Friday grind not work for you. You may talk to your boss about a flexible schedule, reduce your hours to a part-time job.
Wall scribbling from the toddler is one of the things that drive me crazy. Breath in, breath out, and calm down. How would you respond to wall scribbling from your toddler?
