A parenting failure!

Mother and Daughter, an explosive relationship

Am I failing as a mother? I mean Seriously, when I asked my daughter(age13), to please put two waffles in the toaster. So, she brings in a really hot plate with her shirt covering the side of it, and two extremely crispy, stuck to the plate waffles. Instead of putting them in the toaster, she puts them in the microwave for Three Mins! Lol! I should have taken a pic of her trying to convince me they were edible, as she couldn’t even take a bite of it. I’m not much of a cook, always hated cooking so I don’t do it much, but really daughter? So she is currently making them again the right way, and even though she burnt frozen waffles to a plate, I’m still lucky to have a daughter who loves me enough to make them for me. I love my children!

Sincerely,

Amy B.

You don’t have to be a perfect mother, be a mother whose there and loves her children

Did I truly fail, so bad in my duties as a Mother? Or is it not so bad these days as wives and moms can actually do other things besides cooking? Any thoughts…

Dear Teenagers of America: you cray cray LOL…

To all Teenagers who’ve ever said “I don’t have an attitude, that’s just how I talk.” Public Service Announcement Teens!

If you’re a teenager or the parents of a teenager whose ever tried to say to you, “This is just how I talk, so either accept me as I am or don’t because I don’t have an attitude”, then it’s time to face facts little HUMAN, that type of thinking only shows others how immature you actually are. When you recognize that the way you say things to people tends to get frowns, get you in trouble or perhaps they say you have an attitude, and then you make the decision to change how you speak to others so that doesn’t happen anymore, then congratulations you’re becoming a mature young adult and you should be very proud of yourselves.

It’s your job to fix these issues if you want to be respected and taken seriously amoung mature crowds of people. It’s absolutely not our job to change our reaction to your adolescent, angry, hormonal tone of voice!

That Is All!
