10 Years of Parenting: 10 Lessons !!
- While carrying your child, you would have talked to your unborn like a friend and in your imagination, s/he also might have responded too. Rest of your parenting years,you may waste in the search of looking for that friend in him/her. It’s a myth. Don’t get carried away !!
- During the pregnancy & postpartum, your body undergoes a sea change. You become a different person now. Help your partner learn to adjust with this NEW YOU. Be more kind & nice to yourself. Your new-born won’t!!
- If you had planned to have a second child, to give company to your first born. You were absolutely right about it. They most certainly will give you a DOUBLE-TROUBLE !!!
- It is important to keep an eye on the domestic help in your absence using a CCTV camera. But be aware the wretched thing WON’T SPARE YOU TOO. Use caution while making out or hitting each other after an argument in the living room !!
- If you are one of those who push their in-laws for looking after their “high on energy toddler” please spare them. Remember you have already had a taste of their parenting!! Let them enjoy their time, storytelling !!
- Treat your support system/domestic help nice, else it will spill on your child for sure !!
- Join an “All Girls Gang” on the social media. You will get a chance to interact many more sailing in the same boat. Remember “misery loves company”, plus it will give you a different perspective to look & love your brat.
- If your child throws a tantrum in public or puts you in an embarrassing situation, keep your calm. What goes, comes back. Remember, Karma is a B***h !!
- Create a ME-TIME, away from your family. Remember they also need a break from you !!
- Last but most important, Parenting is a Serious Business, don’t let your partner take it lightly !!
