We are humans, so naturally, we all are ought to be in situations, which are totally absurd and irrelevant or even inescapable.
What do we do then?
It is hard to say, yet not hard to do.
Most of the times we sugar coat the lies and present them in the most admirable manner, catching the utmost attention. At times, it is irrelevant and unnecessary too.
Imagine you have a baby who eats every minute. It is like unstoppable hunger. Sometimes, it is just not the baby, but the mother itself, overfeeding the baby. I don’t know how far mothers can relate to this, there are times, I have noticed someones assuming that the baby needs more food, as it is not clearly seen on their body.
I look at the child, and in utter shock, I have asked myself several times ” Is she mad, can’t they see the baby is clearly fit and fine, why they have to toss this much food into them :O”.
What do you do?
A totally emotional mom like me will try to fill her/his platter the very moment they ask for it thinking they are actually starving. Luckily kids are totally weird to impress us that they are hungry.
But is it right?
No !! We shouldn’t be doing so, as feeding your child excessively is harmful to his/her health. So what you should be doing?
Great !! That’s when we need to think right. Kick your emotional side off the plate, and strictly say “NO” to your child.
It is expected that they might show off tantrums unbearable. But firmly assure your mind that, you are indeed doing right.
Growing number of obesity-related illness in kids is alarming, hence it is important for each and every parent to check twice what they offer their child to eat. You might be hurting him/her for an instance, but it is for their better future.
Everything we do for the child has something beneficial in the long run. Be it education, or health or even money. Unwanted supply of money to soothe a demand is crucial for any child mental development. It might be an easy trick to calm down the current scenario, but, it is never a wise step.
A small pinch in time will save the lifetime.
Hence, a small hurt will be just temporary as compared to the biggest trauma coming on your way.
