Time really flies! January is halfway gone already, can you believe that? My son has turned 7 years old yesterday and I can still vividly remember when I first held him in my arms how fragile and little he was and now, look how big he is getting, my golly!
I am so blessed that I get to stay at home and witnessed every milestone of my kids life. Having a hands-on to their daily lives is amazing. Motherhood has been the most precious experience that I have in my life. NO high-paying job can replace the time that I spent with my children every day. Even my kids know that. They always thank me for being there for them. They see their classmates who are basically being taken care of by other people while their parents work. They see how it affects how they behave and do things. I am glad that my kids appreciate our presence as their primary care giver.
The love and care that we give them has a deep impact on them. I hope that we could continue to be good parents to them. I mean, we are not perfect (as there is no such thing in parenting or any other things for that matter) but we strive hard to do our best to be there for them. Guiding and teaching our children is a very important role that every parent has. Raising children is a hard job. You can never plan or set things out perfectly. You learned as you go and enjoy your journey with them.
Hubby and I were talking last night how the way children act in public can be a visible reflection of how they are being raised. We both hope that we can live longer so we can guide our children to be good citizens and that they would have a good life to enjoy with their own family in the future. I feel pain for teens that are misguided as they turn to doing bad stuff sometimes. Although there are facilities that can help them such as the Advanced Health and Education, an addiction treatment center in New Jersey. Parents should be proactive in learning the types of addiction conditions, signs and sources of addiction, the dangers and risks from addiction, and the availability of drug addiction treatment centers. Places such as the New Jersey drug abuse treatment centers have been helping people who are battling with certain addiction at their facilities.
I hope and pray to God that my children will be guided and that they won't fall for things like drug abuse. No parent wants to see their children get involve with drugs or drinking.
