Parenting is such a dilemma!
Mom, why can’t you leave me alone?
I am not a child anymore.
I can make my own decisions
I don’t need you anymore!
Hardly two minutes later…
Mom, have you seen my blue socks?
I can’t find my other shoe.
Can you please make me a burger?
I am totally lost without you.
You are the best mom in the world
And I truly love you.
If you have children, then probably you can relate to this poem. One second they tell you "we are old enough to make our own decisions and don't want any interference from you" and two minutes later they are like like babies who only want to hide in your lap and let you fight the big bad world for them.
Being a parent is all about letting your children grow into independent and brave souls and yet being there for them all the time.
What a dilemma! Do you feel like this too?
(The above poem looking thingy is my own creation )
