Quoting Mrs.Veronica Gonzales 2B.:" That's good ... I remember people telling me it takes a lot of patients to raise a child .... I would say yea yea I know I know ... I didn't know anything ... "
That's the best advice I've never heard. lol The only advice I got was, "You're gonna have to get a job now."
I wish I had someone close by to support me. I was always the one to sit back and watch everyone blow up on each other at home. I remember thinking about how stupid they all were for turning a small problem into a huge, plate throwing, "I'm leaving!" fight. And now with seeing my brother always so mad at his kids, spanking them for not staying still for a butt change & telling them to shut up. It annoys me, I always knew I couldn't be that way. Everyone thinks I'm stupid for it though like my kids going to end up in jail for not being "disciplined." Why do the majority of people not understand the concept or see that it's wrong? My real question is why do so many people think all kids are bad & annoying? The moment a mother actually believes their kid is bad and out to destroy their life is the moment they lose my respect. People need to understand that children are only learning, they dont become all knowing and evil by their first birthday. When they dump their food on the floor its just because they want to see what it does. They dont know it wont disappear next time or that gravity is pulling it down. And they dont know their parents as much as most think they should. So they test us to see how we react. When you react calmly & positively, you raise a calm, positive child. When you react loud and angry, you raise a loud, angry child.
Unless of course they have 5 siblings and just sit back and try to understand people like I did. lol But nobody wants their kid to think they're stupid.
