While we are doing our daily homework for school, after a difficult afternoon with much intensity and after repeating many times “come on, do you homework” it comes that silent moment.
I tell to my 8 years old son”why don’t you are more concetrated in order to finish in time and to have much free time for activities,playing?”
He does not answer. I know that he is trying enough but i also know that every one is different from the other. Every one learns on its own rhytm and way.
I change room and try to show as much understanding as i can because don’t forget that i am a simple human , i am not perfect .I am just a mum who tries and sometimes my patience deserts me.
In the meantime , i watch him and see that he is writing something
Then he comes and gives me e piece of paper. I grab it with curiosity and start crying.
Mixed feeling inside me
On the one hand i feel proud that my son shows a warm attitude and on the other hand i feel guilty that might have pushed him more than i should. Maybe i must avoid situations of intensity?Maybe my child wants to transfer a message to me? Ι make many thoughts in a whole minute and i finally give him a big hug. We are both crying
Obviously our childen understand our efforts although they don’t show it all the time. They feel us more than we think
Their hearts are so kind and sweet that they don’t hesitate to express their feelings even in difficult moments in which we as mothers have much need to hear it
This piece of paper is a part of my personal collection for which i will talk to you in future. That helps me to become better and to stay firm
How about you?Have you ever faced with similar situations?Do your children write you notes?
