What a bad mother I am! It is a phrase that many of us surely think, although we seldom say aloud. Sometimes we are yelling, protesting, unfair, sloppy, demanding, or authoritarian.
It is not that we are only all those things, we are sure that we are also affectionate, playful, dedicated, protective, self-sacrificing and dialogue. Being perfect is impossible, but when those imperfections affect our children, we punish ourselves by thinking that we are not good mothers.
Work outside the home, work inside the home and the whirlwind of day-to-day stress raises our stress to unsuspected limits and this sometimes causes the little ones to be affected by our temper or because we have a bad day.
It may sometimes invade us bad mother syndrome, but there is no other, moms, no matter how good we try to be, we also make mistakes:
1 - Shout outYes, we know, yelling at children is not good or pedagogical, nor does it achieve more than when it is not yelled, but who has not raised the tone at some point before a disruptive child?
2 - Patience: It is a very important value when you are a mother, but at the end of the day when exhaustion invades you but the children continue with an energy worthy of the Guinness Book, we send patience to fry asparagus and we return to point number 1: screaming.
3 - Say no to everything: children ask for so many things that sometimes we stop listening to their requests and we say no by system.
4 - No dialogue: Let's confess, how many of us have ended up saying: because I said so, period! Sometimes because the children do not stop asking questions and do not listen to the arguments and other times because we do not even let them argue.
5 - Not setting an example: We ask the children to be respectful while we insult the driver of the car next door because he did not turn on the indicator or not to lie while they listen to us give an uncertain excuse to a friend not to go on a date.
6 - Not paying too much attention to them: They want to tell us things, but we don't have time to listen, they ask us to read them a story but we leave it for another time, they want us to play but we have to put the washing machine on, change the baby's diapers and call the plumber ... and all at the same time!
If you can't help feeling like a bad mother at some point, it is surely because you are a fantastic mother. You care about the well-being of your child and you want the best for them, you recognize your mistakes and intend to make amends and, even if you fail again, you strive to do better every day.
