How To Be A Good Mother?
1. Please Be Patient
I understand this sounds little hard, especially when they don’t listen to you but being a mom needs a lot of patience. Children are usually messy, noisy and extremely demanding. Yeah of course, you will certainly lose all your patience often. As a mom, even I do. Nevertheless, during such hectic times, just take few deep breaths and look them as small and helpless creatures. To be honest, I am neither a patient woman but motherhood indeed has skilled me in being more patient. As days pass by, you will realize this.
2. It Is Important To Listen To Your Kids
This is that one quality, which I personally found it extremely thought and I am still trying to this day. It is hard but not impossible. Sometimes, it is important as a mom to listen to them. What they want, what they like, what she needs, what they dislike and so on.
We often tend to believe that as moms, we are aware of al the things associated to our kids but the fact is it isn’t. Moreover, we act like problem-solvers, dishing off immediate advice often and while they only need us to just listen. Say for example, your kid may face few problems at his or her school. When they come to you and just begin to tell their story, and immediately you give that solution, which makes them extremely disappointed. They want you to listen first and then act accordingly.
3. Never Be Harsh
This is one of the important things to note down when it comes to how to be a good mom. Yelling at them, hitting them, abusing them or scolding them is never going to work out. This will only worsen the situation. They will begin to be depressed, sad and alone always. And this is not an healthy sign. Humans are never perfect. We are susceptible to make mistakes. This is by nature and even you can’t change that. They just little kids and as a mom, you need to understand them much better. If they do something that makes you feel that it is wrong, teach them in the right way with love.
4. Don’t Be Extremely Loving
Just because I said that don’t be harsh, it doesn’t mean that you have to be loving always and to the extreme. You have to act according to the situation. When things go out of control, you have to be little strict too. Never encourage getting expensive gifts or other objects upon finishing something good. You’ll be spoiling them.
