My Favorite Blog Post This Week- 5th Edition
Mixed Messages to Millenial Moms
This post on the Oklahoma City Mom’s Blog by Britnie Sims is on point with it’s message. It’s so annoying sometimes how you’re told to do one thing but then again your told not to.
We’re bombarded with conflicting information and our parenting choices are scrutinized. One second judgmental snapshots are posted about our lives everywhere which makes raising children in this day and age a little murky and complicated.
Motherhood Requries Grit
There’s a true statement if I ever saw one. So many times, moms are often passed off as being weak or not as strong because she has kids and her heart is soft. What every mother knows is that even when she doesn’t want to there is point (actually several throughout a childs life) where she must step back and let them learn.
Raising grateful kids means parents have to grow up, too. We can’t let our kids control and contrive their way through life. Motherhood has taught me I can’t give in just to keep peace. I can’t heal heartache or prevent heartbreak. I can’t eliminate or alleviate bad days. I can’t protect my children from every day life.
Oh, I can try, but if I always rush to protect my kids from struggling, I might also prevent them from growing.
By the way, Kristen is also the author of the book Raising Greateful Kids in an Entitled World. Check it out when you get the chance :)!
