Raising girls is not as easy as 1-2-3. It takes plenty of humor, a huge amount of love and trust, and a strong will that everything will be okay. You see, my husband works miles away from us. In real life, parenting must be dealt with both the parents. Otherwise, it’s only the mother or the father who has to take all the pressure when or in case something unfortunate happens.
I could be very strict to them but I guess it’s just normal just like any other caring mother would. But I can also be the coolest mom anyone would wish for. I weigh things evenly and try to adjust to how kids behave these days.
My 9 y/o started talking about crushes mid this year and I gladly listen to what she says. I share giggles with her and then I start explaining what needs to be told.
Just like the rest, we also have our own episodes of argument. But as how it should be done, I handle it with care while still sticking to my house rules. When I feel it is too much for their age, then I just think it’s the generation gap to blame.
Despite of it all, I feel I’m the luckiest woman on earth because I get to take care of these two precious – my daughters, Derelle and Erchelle.
