Sappy Moment

SANY0166  I don’t know how I ended up being so lucky. I never had the opportunity to have children of my own; I love children, and I always have. Their energy, innocence, honesty, curiosity, etc. Their ability to express themselves at the precise moment that they have a particular emotion. Then on the flip of a dime they change their mood. The freedom that they have to express themselves is infinite. I love being around that. Through their freedom I can have some of my own. It is easy to joke with them, play with them, and NOT judge them, and they aren’t judging you. I can’t tell people enough how much I love what I do.

I, too , am energetic, emotional, playful but as an adult with adult friends expressing yourself is frowned upon. Watch what you say, how you say things, what you do, etc. How many times, as adults, do we try to shut down the passion that children have for life? I love it when kids get to choose their own outfits. They will have a life time of being fashion conscience, following social etiquette.  Seriously all these social aspects of being an adult are confining, and the worry of hurting another’s feelings is constant in our minds, as a child; you feel badly when someone hurts your feelings but you easily get over it.

Yay for sappy moments, and the ability to express them!

How Do I Say “No” To My Child

Although the sentiments are understandable, it is not practical or feasible to succumb to every demand of the child. It is important to draw the line between ‘want’ and need’. Many parents cannot get themselves to say ‘No’ or simply regret it when they do.
