You can’t claim to love your child and be their worst enemy. You are suppose to protect them.
Parents always claim to love their children. I have been around parents where relatives have slapped their children, called them names or teased them until they cried. The adults then laughed and I would shake my head thinking and wondering how the hell do any of them think that is funny.
A child wets the bed and the parent screams and makes fun of them in front of a crowd of people. What does that parent think that does to that child? Wetting the bed past the age of 2 means their is usually a emotional issue. They really think demeaning them helps?
Then you have the parent that everytime a child cries they stick a bottle in their mouth or give them a cookie. When the child becomes obese they call them fat azz, chubby or lard azz. They blame the child. They never make time to play in the park, ride a bike or take a walk but of course it is the child’s fault they have gained weight.
Then you have the ones that are just too busy. They have young ones that need homework help. The kids come come ask for help but the parent has no time. But let a friend call them up and wow they have the energy to yak on the phone, go out on the town or allow that friend to come hang out. But no time to sit and read with that child or help with simple homework. No time to even ask how was your day? To find out if there was even a problem at school.
Then the kids get older. The problems get more complicated. The parents are still to busy to care or to notice. So now the kids are looking for someone else to care. To love them to notice them.
If they are getting teased at school who can they tell? You are too busy or you just don’t care, they have learned that.
Who do they turn to? Who is there for them?
YOU have set the standards early in life. YOU have taught them who is going to be there.
YOU have taught them who is going to have their back.
Don’t allow your children to seek out the streets….become victimized out there then blame society…..the government…someone else….
YOU can show your kids YOU are there….Set the standards early.
Stand up now and if you cant do it for you, do it for them. Never be to busy for them. Don’t wait until it is to late to stand up.
Make time to listen to them. Sometimes they are speaking to you without saying a single word.
And never ever allow someone else to mistreat your child…Your sister, aunt, friend….Heck no you cant tease, taunt, pinch, pull hair or make my child cry…..
Let them know they are not going to mistreat your child….It is YOUR job to protect them and you should never ever be ashamed to stand up for them…NEVER!!!!!
THAT is a good parent….THAT is a parent with strength……THAT is a parent that fiercely says and shows, “I LOVE MY CHILD”.
