Dear Mom, How does it feel to have a teenager at home? Do you feel scared? Or do you feel protective? It’s time to have an open conversation with your teenage daughter. It’s time for you to be her best friend. Do you know what it means to be a best friend? The only way you can protect your daughter from disasters is being her best friend.

Talk to her about your days in high school and your life in college. Talk to her about the relationships you had with the wrong person when you were a teenager.Share your mistakes with them especially about having a boyfriend when it was time to concentrate on studies. Tell her it’s okay to have friends and hang out once in a while, but also tell her that it’s not okay to have a boyfriend at this age. Tell her that it isn’t purely loving what she feels for the person. Tell her that it’s just an outer attraction, which when girls fall for the world of fantasy they lose everything. Tell them that what they do being a teenager matters a lot as it determines the future most of the time. Tell them that good education would give them an independent life when they are grown up.

Help them follow their dreams. Talk to them about what they want to become when they grow up. If they aren’t interested in studies ask them what they are interested in and help them master it. Don’t push them to learn mathematics and physics and chemistry and biology if they don’t have the capacity to do so. Don’t decide their ambition, let them decide it, you only have to support them in deciding what they want to be.

Spending money on them buying fancy clothes and giving pocket money isn’t love. Understand that your daughter needs you physically by her side. You have to allocate some time to spend with your teenager at least once a week. Go out for a walk with her, take her on a long drive, and go for cycling with her. Let daddy be at home. Spend some girly time with your daughter. Be her best friend, be her role model. Be her whole world, so that she remembers to rush into your shell for protection when the world attacks her.

Prepare you, teenage daughter, to conquer this world when she is grown up. Make her a strong in her confidence and make her stand on her own. Prepare her to become the entire galaxy someday not just a single star. Tell them that you will allow them to fall in love with a man when it’s the right time for her to choose her partner. In the meantime, start preparing your daughter to be a courageous, strong, kind, and smart and a unique lady. So that she becomes a wise young lady when she enters her youth.

These are the unspoken and silent voice of a young lady, who was once a teenager.

Mommy Guilt

I’m a Mom, Mom to my kids, Mom to my husband and Mom to myself……Is it easy??

While I have hectic weekends, busy work weekdays, where on earth can I find time for myself? Just to sit on the couch with a hot cup of coffee?, sleep early and wake up late on a sunny Sunday, Having to do nothing during the day, Having a peaceful candlelit dinner with my husband without having to take off all those spoons and dishes away from the table???

I read your thoughts, mommies..!! Rewind your times of only being that beautiful wife to your husband, you get all those times in beautifying yourselves, trying out new hairstyles and fashionable outfits, makeup and shopping.. Have you ever thought it will just be the same when I change my status from wife to MOM?

Well mommies, I’m telling you its all for better.

We get to work 24/7, cleaning, washing and what not… But for what? Yes, we are tired and exhausted, while the daddies are cool enough to sit on the couch and watch their favorite TV program…

Yes, we get annoyed seeing such sight and might want to throw that cooking spoon right on to their heads, but ladies…….we are MOMMIES, we aren’t for that.’

Your kiddo over there, will grow up so quickly and even without our knowledge they will take us as their role model, a person to look up at when they are down, a leader, an inspirational teacher, and a morale booster!!

Isn’t the hard work, the pain we go through lead you to a beautiful path full of success and accomplishments one day in future..?

A child’s smile is a ray of sunshine on a cloudy day said a poet one day. My kid messes the house, collects sand and stones and wraps it on my pillow, kills ants and brings insects which I may fear even to hold HIM let alone the dead stuff…

It’s a rough tide, but it slows down and slops afterwards. You go on shouting and yelling and may burst into tears, but every hard rain will end up with a rainbow.

Dear Mums, Moms role is flourishing and a blessing from above. You are a creator of a future leader and an intelligent human being. Save up all your tears that you have to shed in a process of making your kids dreams come true. Later shed them as happy tears when you see him grow and shine and look upon you and show how much he loves you!…

You don’t have to feel guilty about not providing the ‘best’. Your bundle of joy just needs you and your shadow to embrace him and his needing.

Happy mommy times ladies….
