Parenting confusions

23 Mar

At first we teach them to talk and then we tell them to ‘keep quiet’.

At first we teach them to walk, run and jump and then we tell them to sit and think.

At first we teach them to ‘look at that!’ and then we tell them to lower their gaze.

At first we teach them to shake hands with everyone and then we restrict them.

At first we teach them vanity: “see how pretty you look in this”, and then we expect them not to give importance to looks.

At first we tempt and even force them to ‘eat’, then we tell them to be moderate with food.

At first we become thankful that they’re finally sleeping, then we expect them to wake up on the first call.

Strange indeed we parents are, aren’t we? 🙂

    salaam this is sister Zeena from Minnesota in the USA. My 3rd grader son and I will be relocating to Islamabad in August inshallah. I homeschool and need to keep it that way when I arrive, I have joined a Pakistani Homeschoolers yahoo group but almost all are in other cities. So I am looking for other homeschooler in Islamabad to meet and help where is needed. I thank you for your time. Zeena
