I could do most of my tasks when it comes to my work or dealing with several projects at a time. I can multi-task on certain things when it comes to work but when it comes to parenting, I can’t just seem to find the perfect blueprint on how to do it or navigate through it.
I have three kids, Michal is 10 years old, Mickyla or Ching as we fondly call her is 5 years old and my youngest, Mickaela as Cha-Cha is a 2 year old girl.
It seems that I have to devise a strategy for my son Michal different from Mickyla as well as Mickaela as they have different personalities and behaviors.
All parents know that there is no special training given on how to be a parent. We can try to read books on how to be a parent or even research on the internet the how to’s, what to do’s, when to do’s and why’s just so we could be good parents to our children.
Being a mom at the age of 21, I had no idea how to be one and I felt so incompetent on how to raise my firstborn. But as they say, it will come out naturally and you will learn eventually.
But can we just rely on our natural instincts on being a parent to our kids?
Is it okay for us to have a trial and error when it comes to parenting?
Clearly, we are talking about raising good kids and it can only be done if we are good parents as well.
But the big question is, how do we raise ourselves as good parents so we can raise good kids of our own if we were not taught how to be one.
