Yes, children can be boring. I mean, how thrilling is it to play 14 games of Candyland? But let me let you in on a little secret…it’s not about entertaining you! It’s about making your children feel secure and loved and happy. Spending fifteen minutes pushing your child on a swing pays off in spades.
No, SCT. You’ve completely missed the point. There’s not a parent among us who hasn’t wanted to strangle their kids, who would much rather sit through a movie but have to leave because the baby won’t stop crying, who has to give up the hot Mustang convertible for the minivan. Raising a child to be a functioning, contributing member of society is an awesome, painful, sometimes unrewarding job. It’s not all fun and games. I certainly don’t find my children thoroughly fascinating and enjoyable at all times. And you know what? I bet they feel the same way sometimes about me! It’s called life…it can’t be all martinis and chocolate all the time.
Guess what, toots…no one enjoys that! But you do it because your HIS MOTHER!
First off, what research, and second off…condescending much? Do you know how much fun it is to make a three year old giggle? To get a child to name the colors on your shirt? To take a teenager to get her ears pierced?
Guess what? One is teaching your child responsibility, and one is being involved in your child’s life. But I guess you missed that on your way to the beauty salon instead of your kid’s soccer game.
Yes. That’s all it takes. :smack: You should have gotten a cat instead of pregnant.
