My Parenting Mantra
Parenting – this is something so simple yet so complicated. Since the time I have become a Mum I have heard people around share their experiences. But trust me your child is someone who teaches you everything. Every child is different so how every parenting can be same. With my little one paying attention to whatever I say or see or do, it made me more conscious as a parent and there are some things which I am mindful of and take care.
I believe in attachment parenting and breastfeeding, massaging my baby and babywearing helped me meet this. Babies need loads of skin to skin contact to keep them calm and composed, feeds them empathy, love, and respect. Hugs, snuggling, back rubs, massage, and physical play help meets the need too.
Don’t Fill All His Demands
I don’t offer him whatever he demands, kids these days have rooms full of toys and games. Some they ask and some we offer out of our love for them.Everything is in excess today with the kids.I want him to find happiness in people and not in gadgets and toys. I don’t want him to be materialistic.So instead of buying expensive toys, I spend my precious time with him.
Learn to Earn
My baby has to earn if anything he asks for is logical. So I give him tasks like help me in getting something, or clean his toys room or his toy basket. Finish the food or get ready on his won. They learn that nothing is free in this world or everyone has to contribute to the household chores. The practical world does require hard work and smart work.
Fall and Learn
I let him fall and get up on his own, I am not those moms who hover around their kids like an invisible umbilical cord. If he falls at the park while playing or skid while running and I gauge that he is perfectly ok then I let him get up on his own. Kids need to realize to be independent. Sometimes when parents create a mess for small matters even kids start behaving that way.
There are some rules which I have set for myself considering my profession. Because I need to be online most of the time. I switch off from my phone for hours when I am with my little one because kids require undivided attention and trust me multitasking doesn’t work. Kids are smart enough to understand when you paying due attention to them.
Parenting is a roller coaster ride. Every day I learn new things, evolve, make mistakes and learn from them. I have changed a lot since I became a mom. I don’t know if it’s for good or bad but yes being called as MOM is the only thing that appeals me these days.
