Can the generation today still say “I had an awesome childhood?” If we look at the kids, do we even see the happiness they are supposed to be getting from their youth or are they prisoner of what we call the modern world? Yes, the advancement of technology is a good leap for humanity. There are tons of things that can be done easier by using it, but like everything else, its excessive use can be damaging as well.
Many of us, parents, think that it is okay to argue or fight in front of our children, especially when they are still young. We believe that they do not understand what we talk about, but we are wrong. Notice how smart infants and toddlers are. They are similar to a sponge that absorbs everything around them. They can quickly tell what the emotions are related to the tone of our voice or our facial expressions.
One of the most exciting feelings we could ever experience is awaiting a new-born baby’s arrival at home. Everyone in the family must be ready and thrilled to see and touch your angel. The grandparents, aunts, uncles, and other relatives are all lining up to find out from whom your baby got his eyes and lips.
It isn’t easy being a single mother. Nurturing your family alone is no small feat. Holding your child in your arms with no partner to share the burden is a sign of great bravery. Raising that child to be a wonderful man or woman is even more so.
