My youngest was telling me about her friends who like me. They think I am friendly and fun.
But she said: If they were me, they wouldn't like you, coz you are a scary mum!
"How am I scary?" I asked her.
She replied: You shout, you scream and you scold me.
She went on to add : The best Mums are always are our friends mums. They are always nice to us.
"But of course!" I said, "We cant go around scolding other people's children, can we?"
I think there are some Mums that are always so loving and patient with their children. I know of a few. But I was surprised one day when one of my friends who I thought fell into that category posted on her facebook page: My daughter thinks I am scary!!
Never would I have imagined it. She's one of the sweetest, most patient mum I have met. And yet her daughter thinks she is scary. SCARY isn't it?
So are you a scary mum? Go ask your kids. Chances are they will say "Yes". If they say "no", give them a big. big hug, coz they are the most sensitive kids and they just don't want to hurt your feelings. Haha!
