No one said it was easy
That feeling you get when you find out you’re pregnant, or when your baby kicks for the first time, the Labour wow that hurts. Then you see your beautiful healthy baby it was all worth it The love you have for this little person. all your dreams come true <3…
Then as your child gets older, Brothers and Sisters come along and if you’re very lucky all your children stay as angelic as they were when born, I repeat Lucky, and for the unlucky ones, The shit hits the fan and your children turn in to Teenage nightmares. The tears, the self-doubt, the stress, and the repeated question “Why why, why” and “why me” and you try everything possible to make thing better, to try to understand your child’s mood swings, their hurtful words or as much as you give them they want just that little bit more. How many times have you thought about walking out the door not looking back? or the people who think they know better and have all the idea’s and they don’t even have a child, Don’t you just want to poke them in the eye, don’t do this, violence is not the answer For all the parents that are going through this Trauma, Keep going be strong there is an end to this bleak tunnel, I send you to love, strength and the will to carry on, you are amazing and I am proud of you.
To the parent who believes their job is done when your child reaches a certain age Get in the real world, Step up and get your child off the street, They are your responsibility as a parent the good and the bad, your job is never done as a parent, Everyone slags of the young people for how they behave, Why do they think it’s not wrong to kill each other or bully, intimidate people, not to have the social skills to treat people with love and respect This starts at home, Teach your child’s Life skills to help them to protect themselves and others Teach them how to grow in to a positive kind adult, If they can’t hear then they must feel If you have tried your hardest then no one can ask for more.
