Well!! To be very precise, parenting phase is never ending but it just changes the stages one after another and the truth is “Each stage has it’s own challenges.” Yet, undoubtedly the first three stages are tougher to tackle reason being we are new to adapt the parenthood. And hence, sometimes we are so occupied, confused, tensed and tired that we feel irritated. Here, the author tried to illustrate why our little buddy needs to be loved unconditionally and why should we feel irritated less and enjoy more.
1. One day he will not be in diapers anymore.
Yes, it’s the most active task for each parent initially. Peeping into the diapers every time becomes our daily job. Not only in days but at nights too. But, We all know that it’s hardly for next two or three years only. And then, your newborn will learn to pee and poop quite well.
2.No Carrying would be needed. One Day, he will grow up big and will not need to be carried out.
3. No Spoon Feeding. We all know how messy it is to feed these little kids.
The food is all over the table, chair, outfits and face. But the truth is that one day they will learn to eat and drink by themselves. And we will not be doing it for them.
4. Bathing will be a private thing then.
Yes, when they will grow up, they will be able to Bath by themselves and also, Bathroom will be their private space and we will not be allowed.
5. They will know their routined tasks.
This early phase of the childhood when they are toddlers. It is the time when we teach them about their routines. Wash your hands, Brush your teeth, Clean your Tongue, Go to Loo and what not. But, just after next 5 years, they will be fine doing it all by themselves.
6. Shoe laces would be perfectly done.
As a new Preschooler, she doesn’t know how to dress up and No idea for how to tie those shoe laces. You do it daily and they get it untied every now and then. No worries Mommy, she will be fine doing it one day and you will be free from this task too.
7. Tantrums wouldn’t be their thing anymore.
Those bloody tantrums which are just too hard to handle. These little kids don’t even know the correct place to show these emotions. Whether you are at office, market, school, playground or at home, they will just through the tantrum balls at you and will be “HOWZZAT”! But, But, But…. After few more years. They will learn how to behave publicly. An these tantrums will be in your memories only.
8. They will learn Running on the Correct path and correct manner.
Babies are not better than zombies. They look randomly and run blindly. Every time when they start running on rough roads, we run behind them with all our foot in mouth. But, believe it or not.. It’s a little phase and they will learn to walk and run correctly bacuse they will be aware about the consequences unlike their early stage.
9. They will not need our physical support to walk in their life.
Parents support is always important at each phase of life but physically they need to be supported while walking until they are not grown up. One day they will know how to cross the roads, how to climb the hills and how jump our tiny streets. Those tiny little fingers will not grab our hands to do such little things.
10. Those tiny little feets will grow big.
It is said that once a kid is able to befit his feets in his parent’s shoes, he becomes responsible. It is true to the core. Once, they are mature enough, they will understand their responsibilities and they will understand what you have gone through.
11. Childhood passes so quickly.
There was a tiny cell whom we loved first, then she was a new born, then she was 1 and called toddler. Not more than 2 years passed and she was Preschooler then. Gradually her schooling started from kindergarten and now she is teen preparing for her board exams. Time passes so quickly,Isn’t it!!? And we are only left with memories.
Therefore, why to feel irritated when they need us the most. Childhood is the Base of any human. Let’s serve their Base with all our unconditional love and devotion. [Read Things to teach your kid before Teenage.]
