How To Make Parenting Easy

As a child, growing up in Nigeria was some experience, one that will never be forgotte by me. My took very strict measures with us. The girls among us found them very stifling and controlling. They would never let us come back to the house anytime we wished. There was some sort of curfew. Many times, we were punished by our Parentsneed for coming home very late. All of these made me have a mixture of emotions for my parents—respect and fear. Sometimes I found it hard to believe parents would seek to have such control over their children. I know better now.

When I decided to move to America with my children, I knew I needed to seek advice, to discover a way of parenting them, and disciplining them without spanking since that is illegal in America. I had to kind of find the middle between two extremes. It has not been easy. Recently, I happened to give a ride to a mother and her little daughter. Saying that the child was acting up would be an understatement. She would yell for something now, the next moment.

She would ask her to take down the window, she would do so. Then she would insist she roll it up. The little girl would scream for about just anything. The woman would obey like it is a habit she has been growing for some time, with a long suffering silence. I had to ask the mother what the problem was with her daughter. What happened next both surprises and moved me too pity. The mother broke down in tears and told me she was tired of her daughter.

As a parent, I have discovered that there are other ways to bring up a respectful child who is respectful and still outspoken. I have somehow manages to find a ground in the middle of the two extremes and my children are the proof that it works. No parent is ever ashamed of a respectful and disobedient child. While we are at it, we should also brace ourselves. We should never decide to call it quits on our children. It is something you get used to once you get the hang of it.

She explained that her daughter had always behaved like this and that she was high done. After I made some inquiries, the mother confided in me.However, by the second trimester you have to increase your intake of calories. 340 additional calories is advisable. By the third trimester increase to 450 calorie intake. She told me the daughter was not even up to 6 years old and she could not tell her what to do. The daughter knows she cannot be spanked.
