Preserve Your Sanity.
As parents, you don’t get to have an OFF day. You don’t get to be sick, or sad, or lazy or confused. You don’t get to make mistakes. Or have blinding migraine headaches. You had plenty of time to have untimely medical conditions, fainting spells, or emotional freak outs BEFORE you CHOSE to bring a child into this world. You probably shouldn’t have any mood altering medications, mid-day cocktails or “medicinal” escapes as you need to be 100% responsible for little people who are now depending on you FOR EVERYTHING. Godforbid you screw up because the world will be watching, iPhone recording, judging you VIRALLY and branding you as an UN-FIT parent.
Ridiculous? Or …Reality?
You’ve probably seen the videos. A pregnant mother with 4 kids drives her family into an ocean. A young mother on a bus can’t focus her eyes or keep from falling over without the help of her young daughter…probably a good-for-nothing-junkie comments say. Someone should take her child away from her, but first, let’s hit the record button on our iPhone…never mind using it to call for help.
Want a better world than this for your children? It starts with US.
Let us vow together: When we see a struggling Mother or Father in an unfortunate situation, let us CHOOSE to set aside our judgements and assess HOW we may be of service. LET US have empathy.
We live in a world with very high expectations of us as parents, and one that can (and will) easily monitor and record us at our worst for their own personal enjoyment and self-superiority. I’ve worked with thousands of parents who are right on the edge, and I’ve been there myself. So how can we sit back and mock those who have gone off the deep end? Is it so easy to judge? Is it what we do to feel avoid improving upon ourselves?
If you really are BETTER than that, use your SANITY for good.
You have a responsibility to do your best as a parent… but how about our basic human duty to show thoughtfulness and compassion to our own kind? Parents, we NEED EACH OTHER.
