Why Parent’s Can’t Always be Carefree, but Kids Should Be

Silly Faces of a Carefree Childhood

 

Have you noticed how things can easily piss you off as an adult?  If only we could keep our childlike attitudes, and be more easy going.  One of the things I miss about being a kid is not having to worry so much about things like we do now as adults. Let nature takes it course, let things fall into place, let what’s meant to be, be.  Naturally everything will work out for the best right?  Wrong!  Don’t burrow your eyebrows.  Hear me out. As a parent, now that we are grown, we need to enforce the rules, make sure that the environment we have for our children is one that allows them to be carefree and happy.  So yes it is nice to let go a little as adults, but we also have responsibilities that little ones do not and should not have.  We have to make sure that they are safe and feel safe.  We have to not only tell them but show them to be kind, polite, to share, to think, to feel safe talking to us.  So while they are outside running around or jumping in the pool, always keep your watchful eye on them, because they are allowed to be carefree only during these years.  When teenagedom and adulthood hit them, it will all be different then.  So have fun, smile, live life like it’s going out of style, but remember to raise the little ones with love, understanding and with rules.  Life gets tougher, our decisions impact our futures and we have to prepare them for this.  Parenting is difficult but coming from a place of love can’t steer you wrong.  Talk to you kids and help them understand why we do what we do and are how we are, it will only benefit you.
