Parenting is sharing responsibilities

Everything you do for your child should be done together.

The beauty of doing it together makes the sharing and caring double and the child benefits from the love of his/her parents. The child who is loved truly by the parents are the happiest ones. The confidence and the positiveness that the child projects is the complete evidence of the love in the family.

Childcare is not only a woman’s responsibility. Parenting is not a task done by a mother alone. A father and mother have equal responsibility. We have so far gone through many cases where only the woman is directed to do, and the men become the bread winner. Little do they realize that childcare is supposed to be a sharing responsibility.

The growing cases of postpartum depression are mainly due to the increasing negligence of the men to help their spouse to handle a newcomer in the family. People think a woman can handle the responsibility of a mother, but everyone needs a helping hand.

Actually, a woman should stop pretending for being some super woman . I am tired of being watching the super woman ads in the TVs. Throwing a different ideology. Why can’t girls be normal, do things what they like than being a super nova or something?

I guess I need to teach my kids to take it slow and live a stress-free life. Every kid should be taught to do the same, be happy and be content with what they are . Parenting is the one way to usher that, When both parents work together to help their own child, the child understands that for everything a man and the woman has to shoulder each other rather than compete.

We are not in the world of competing for each other to be a great mom or a great dad. No one is perfect ,so sharing the responsibility will improve the bonding of the family rather than breaking it and make it appear like a race. And finally, the stressed out family points fingers at each other.

To have a better life, everyone needs to share responsibilities rather than burdening one person. It’s the same with sharing your expenses in the family too , helping your man to earn well and save rather than stress in their jobs too.

Desperate need to come back

When there is a long gap in anything you have been doing and then stopped doing those , there comes a moment of desperation to do it.

It’s is not just work – but everything.

Past few weeks as I was talking to many women who shared similar thoughts to mine , I understood that we all were thinking alike, the desperation , the need to be something or someone. That’s on everyone’s mind , but to get through that it is quite difficult but not impossible. So never loose heart.

We all have some kind of responsibility in life ,which how much ever we turned down, we will end up doing . If I see my home messy, I will clean ones when am in desperation to clean. (which is hardly ever) . The only thing we need to have is confidence and a belief in yourself.

Never let your depression overshadows your mind . For women who too ka break for child care and another family responsibility, be proud that you have done it and it was a right decision. Never let the thoughts of burden cloud your mind.

It is not easy.

But again for us ,it is not difficult too.

Maybe for few years your life is revolving around the lil ones or your loved ones, that means you are not wasting your life- you are the most important person in their life .Be it a child or an elderly.

For me , my kids are my world and am happy that I devoted my time to them, learning a lot from them.

Be proud moms for you are what you are born to be and you will be what you should be and want to be, give time and have patience.
