And what do I do when the kids quarrel? If I can still retain my composure, here are the things I do:
- Talk to them and let them know that fighting is a bad thing (while they still can't talk back!) and that mom and dad doesn't want them fighting.
- Tell each other to apologize and be sincere when saying "Sorry"
- When fighting over a toy, I get the toy from them and let them realize that until they learn how to share, they can't have it again.
- And when fighting over me, I get their dad - share your blessings! (lol)
Being a mom is really a tough job. Nurturing your kids isn't just a thing to do - it is a lifetime task, to continually teach them about life and all the things around them. And us moms, are just a wonderful gift to them just as they were to us.
