The Circle of Motherhood
“Jab tum maa banoge tab samajh ayega” (you will understand when you become a mother).
All of us must have heard this sometime in our childhood. I have heard it too. And now that I am the mother of a 2-year-old boy, I can totally understand what my mother wanted to tell me in these simple words.
Mothers, do you remember how, when we were kids, we blamed our moms thinking they didn’t love us enough? I always had a big list of complaints. It doesn’t mean I don’t love my mother. But now, I can understand why she was strict, why she wanted everything to be perfect, and also why she was on my side when I was sad. Mothers indeed know everything. I not saying this because I am a mother now, but because I can understand a mother now, who gives unconditional love without expecting anything in return.
So, mothers, I understand it’s not easy to raise a child. You have to be calm and polite at all times, and you have to listen to your baby when he/she wants to share something with you. Listening and talking always helps. This create a very comfortable bond between mothers and babies. When a child finds a friend in his/her parents, they don’t need to go anywhere for help. But, always set boundaries and rules. It is necessary to make a child understand that you are with him/her, but he/she should also know the limits.
And last but not least, forgiveness. It is the key to all the problems. When you know your child is sorry for something and will never repeat the same mistake, don’t take time to forgive him/her. Doing so will stop your little one from taking any wrong step in the future.
I wish you all the best.
