When a Child is Born

By Carmel Baird

When your child is born, it is the most wonderful moment of

your life. No one can explain that feeling fully, and when

you first come home and that tiny bundle is wholly your

responsibility, that is an awesome feeling.

And that tiny bundle already has it's own mind and believe

it or not, knows just what he or she wants and right there

and then, without you realising it, sets about getting it.

We can do courses for so many things, get degrees in many

areas but have you noticed, there are no real courses or

degrees in Parenting, the most important job you will do in

your entire life.

That's why there are many articles written about various

areas of parenting from babes to teens. The experiences of

others may just help with our own concerns about our

children and how we are handling certain situations. These

articles let us know we are not alone and we are not the

only one to have a problem.

I remember when my daughter was in her early teens, we

suddenly has this once very happy, loving daughter,

exploding, stomping, flaring up for no real apparent reason

and calming down almost as fast. That was as long as we

didn't say anything, just let the exploding, stomping, etc

go on.

I kept thinking, it must be something I was doing or not

doing, then we received an invitation from her school to

participate in a Personal Development Program. Not knowing

just what was involved with this program we went along and

found out it was for just this very thing that had been

happpening with our daughter. and....we were not alone.

It was a great program as we did it with our daughter and

even though the highs and lows didn't go away, we knew we

were not alone. I know I had holes in my tongue from biting

on it, well not really, but I had to hold back on many

things I would normally have said something about. By doing

that, the moment would pass very quickly and my beautiful

daughter would be back to her normal self.

Her father called this time in her life the "galloping

hormones". There is so much going on, they don't

understand, their bodies are developing, they are not

children anymore and they are not adults either. It's like

a no man's land or no woman's land, time in their life,

very difficult and if we don't understand at least some of

what is going on, we can hinder more than help.

These kids are growing up faster today than when my daughter

was young. You know, we push and we shouldn't. From the

start, we are waiting for the first word, first step etc etc

etc then, I don't know about you but, when mine got to a

certain age, I wanted to put a brick on their head to slow

them down. The time was racing away and soon they would be

all grown up.

We only have them on loan, so we must look after them, they

are precious. Our influence alone is for but a very short

time. Unfortunately today, our influence time can be very

limited. If you have to go back to work and leave your

child in care, then while it's not your fault, your

influence is only the time you had with your child before

the "in care" time started.

I was fortunate, while we didn't have everything that opened

and shut in our home, we also didn't do without anything

important, I was able to spend the first 5 years of my

children's lives in the most important job I have ever done

and that was caring for them, being a Mum and I wouldn't

have missed it for anything.

Once they started school, the outside influences came in,

through teachers mainly. and....teachers are gospel,

especially to a 5 year old. (don't get me wrong, I'm not

putting down teachers, they are wonderful).So I was very

pleased to be able to have my influence, the values and

guidance I felt was important in life, instilled in my

chlidren from an early age, The time you are the sole

carer of your chlid is the only time you have to teach them

your values, what you hope for them and the type of person

you hope for them to grow up to be.

I started collecting these articles for Kids and Teens

Parenting so other parents can feel they are not alone. I

hope they will help you and if there is an area you would

like some information on, please let us know and I will

endeavour to find it for you.

We will keep adding downloadable e-books as we find them, so

even if it is 2am, you will be able to get help.
