MyTwoCentsSeries #14 Lessons from Parenting !!

10 Years of Parenting: 10 Lessons !!

  1. 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 !!
  2. 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!!
  3. 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 !!!
  4. 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 !!
  5. 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 !!
  6. Treat your support system/domestic help nice, else it will spill on your child for sure !!
  7. 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.
  8. 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 !!
  9. Create a ME-TIME, away from your family. Remember they also need a break from you !!
  10. Last but most important, Parenting is a Serious Business, don’t let your partner take it lightly !!
