The lessons are in the struggle! I struggle with this all the time, constantly having to remind myself that they need to learn how to make difficult choices and that they can be strong in difficult times. For the difficult times and difficult choices will always come.
There was a time in my life where I did it all and was taken for granted. Thank goodness!!! My husband is so appreciative and aware of all that I do. We mutually share an appreciation! I love my husband to pieces! ☝So true and relatable...One day you wake up and realize. (FYI:That's where all the complaining came from! When you stop doing everything. Never take anything or anyone for granted!) Hopefully, they have learned for the future!
The worst and harshest critics of a new or young mom is another new or young mom. We all do it different this parenting thing. As long as the child is safe and thriving just let it be with the judgements.
