How I deal with Motherhood

I enjoy my children. I like dressing them up, teaching them things, and listening to how intelligent they are. But, the reality is, it is one of the most (probably the most) challenging job for a woman. The hardest thing about it is almost all of your attention and care is toward your children when they are young. There is barely time for yourself throughout the day. The way I’ve come to look at motherhood is as an investment. The more time you spend teaching and being with your kids, the better teenagers and ultimately adults they will be. Just think about it. If I spend time teaching my kids how to clean, give them chores, show them how to fear God, correct them when they’re wrong the better the return I will receive from their behavior and actions when they are older. Even if I’ve done all that I could do as a parent and my kids still behave different from what I’ve taught, I can be guilt free because I’ve done my part. But the sooner you teach your child the more it will stick with them throughout adulthood. The bible says, “train up a child in the way that he should go, and when he is older he will not depart from it.” So ladies look at motherhood as an investment for your kids future and not always as a difficult burdensome task. It’s also an investment for you because the more prepared your kids are for adulthood, the more you will be able to relax in the future. God bless!!
