Mothers – Whats your role?
For many years it has been your role as a parent to spend 100% effort on raising, teaching, showing, guiding your child into becoming a decent human being. A healthy, happy, confident, smart, powerful, self assured, loving and caring, giving, respectful human being is what we would all like to achieve while raising/creating a child. It seems as if we just get used to a chapter or stage in their development and then all of a sudden another year older bring new challenges and new things to learn as a parent. The teen years are defiantly a new chapter. There are so many changes, challenges and wonderful developments to witness as a parent that sometimes it can be quite overwhelming, l know l said to my husband many a time “Where did my sweet little girl go and who sent me this monster”! Looking back their where no monsters in my home just a young women wanting to crawl out of her caterpillar cocoon and become a beautiful butterfly. She wanted to take everything she had learned in the past 13 years and start to live it for herself, l was the one that wasn’t ready for her to fly!
