Parenting is child’s play. Or not! Parenting is a top sport. In any case, it cannot be done on autopilot. Parenting starts with birth. Or when the child or children is/are at home. Then as a parent, you are directing, giving direction and ultimately that should lead to everything going well.
Are you okay? Looking at my role as an educator, I do see the necessary points for attention. In retrospect, it is of course easy to say. Or is it so? Those thoughts that maybe you could have done better.
I go through fire for my children. I don’t defend them blindly, because I know they make mistakes too. If my children are wronged or hurt, my eyes are on fire. That is sometimes quite difficult because I am a person who can sometimes react emotionally. Injustice and pain, I just can’t handle that.
Meet the emotional Good Family Father. A committed father who wants the best for his children. But also for the world in which they live. Who wants to fight for it.
These are often very personal blogs. Blogs that I can read critically later and then react to them again. A constant stream of emotions that I share with the rest of the world.
You don’t have to agree with everything I write. That I write or want to write it is (was) my own choice. I, therefore, request that you use kindness and respect as a guide when you respond. Then I’ll do this the other way around, promise.
There are plenty of suggestions for raising my children. Well-intentioned advice too. I am always grateful for this. It doesn’t mean I’m taking them over. That is my consideration. Just as personal as the information I share with you.
