Hot Topic Alert!!!
As moms, there are tons of things we should never do or say. But today, I want to talk specifically about 3 things that all moms should just never do!
1) Don’t Compare.
This one is a given. Yet some moms still do it. Every baby is born blessed and as a unique individual. No baby will ever be the same. This even applies to twins! Comparing will only lead to negative thoughts and or vibes. One will think they’re child is “too slow” or “advanced” etc. All children grow and learn at different (their own) paces. Their life journey will be exactly what it’s supposed to be. Things will happen at the exact moments they are supposed too. You’re in for some surprises and every day will be a new and exciting journey for both you and your child. Enjoy it! It flies by!
2. DO NOT physically abuseyour child or children.
Physical abuse can give mixed signals and messages to your children. Some examples of this are:
• spanking shows ‘stronger’ is right
• demonstrates that ‘older’ people (adults) have the right to hit ‘younger’ people (children)
• gives the example that violence solves problems
A recent study reveals a connection between spanking in childhood and mental health diagnoses later in life.
3. Neglect yourself.
As mother’s, this is a really easy thing to do. We (most of us anyways) feel like nothing and no else matters, once our children are born and come into the picture so to speak. We forget to do little things like brush our teeth, go to the dentist, brush our hair, do our nails, etc.
Before becoming a mother, I told myself that I would never neglect myself! I knew this was going to be hard and obviously much easier said then done. But I made a point to start the very day each of my babies were born. I brought my hair straightener, and make up bag to the hospital. Yup. Read that again. LOL. Thankfully, I didn’t tear or rip for either child, and was able to walk normally (or at least that’s what I told myself) a few hours they were born. One of my first stops in the morning, was to the hospital bathroom, to brush my teeth, hair and to flat iron it straight. I also did my make up. Yup! The entire sha-bang! I wanted to feel and look myself. Let me tell you… this worked! Until this day, I still do that. Every single day. Regardless of what time it is, I am sure to do it! This gives a sense of relief and confidence. I find that the earlier I do this, the better mood I am in for the day. Try it for a consistent period of time. Let me know if it works for you!
I hope you enjoyed and found value from this. If so, feel free to drop a comment and share it with your friends and family!
