The Lies Every Parent Tells

The Lies Every Parent Tells

Commented Aug 8, 2012 at 11:00:08 in Parents

“My friends and I became much closer once we all started sharing everything about parenting! The late night struggle for them to go to bed, trouble waking them up in the morning, letting them sleep in our bed just so we can get some rest and go to work the next day, our discipline tactics and what worked and what did not, the attitude issues our kids gave us, the struggle to get the kids to eat the healthy portion of their meal, getting them to do their chores, and everything else in between! In the beginning we all pretended (not lied) that we are perfect and our kids are perfect as well! However, as the kids got bigger and it became obvious that yes, I have to discipline my child just as much as you do - we all started talking and sharing and it was such a relief and so comforting to know that I was not the only one! Nobody is perfect, but sharing our struggles with others you trust can help you go beyond that struggle and turn it into something great!”

“MKWewer - don't be so harsh on yourself! I have two boys (6 and 3) and when I was pregnant with my second, my biggest concern and fear was how I was going to do it and how it will all affect my oldest! We have a good and solid marriage but we have our moments that cause these type of days as it is spelled out in the article above! Trust me, you will do just fine! I can tell that you are a caring mother and that dedication and love and care is the first step!!! Good luck! You are not alone!!!”

“When I became a parent, my needs became second and my children became my priority! I am grateful to have a happy marriage but we have always had an agreement that if the time comes and we fall out of love, or we are just no longer happy together, that person should have the respect to tell the other that it is time to move on before anybody gets hurt and resentment moves in! Raising our children together and to the best of our ability while trying to minimize the "damage" to their lives should always be the number one on our to do lists! The child's needs get put aside when a parent is selfish to only think about him/herself! Good luck with everything! Your mom is lucky to have raised a boy like that!”

“What you write seems reasonable, but, were your husband/wife to come to you tonight and say that it's time to move on, "hurt and resentment" would be in the room in a New York minute.”
