Being a mother doesn’t come with a guide or a manual of how too. Probably because no 2 children are the same. Any book out there that preaches this or that method as a “matter od Fact” I believe is a SCAM and
At the end of the day one just has to focus on good upbringing and do what’s convenient for you and your family’s sanity.
I know this first hand. I have two daughter and they are by far almost the complete opposite of each other. Sure they have a few similarities but as for their temperaments they are entirely different.
So if you are in need of a good night’s sleep and your child keeps stomping into the bedroom don’t stress yourself out, let them have a one nighter with you in the bed, they’ll eventually grow out of it. Ever heard of a 15 year old sleeping in their parent’s bed???
Or this whole peeing “accidents” I know it’s a pain and a real drag but your child will do it when they’re ready, don’t beat yourself up about it. Yet again I’ll say “Eventually” they’ll grow out of it.
The things I would say one has to put their foot down is number 1 Safety and secondly manners. These thing you do have to stress about because the earlier you instill those values in your child the more of a guarantee they’ll grow up to be descent human beings.
So yes I may not exactly practice what I preach because I do stress out about the littlest of things….but I thought maybe sharing this with the world will give others comfort that no one Mommy REALLY has the answers, because what works for one parent or childe for that matter won’t work for another.
So as that book says “Don’t stress the small stuff” just get on with Making Life Memorable and things will fall into place!
