See them as they are...
Let them Bloom as they are meant to.
Keep watering, keep nurturing.
Nature has its own beauty as it transforms n reveals.
Kids will be kids. They HAVE TO act n behave like one. And that signifies they are LIVING as one.
What they say or do if we don't see it as What's coming from a 6 Yr old or 4 Yr old or 1 Yr old...
We will only lose out living their childhood together with them as they Bloom.
I learnt that beneath every behaviour, breathes a feeling and a need.
And as a parent, it's on me to look thru and beyond all that n see what is the actual concern and assure them, reassuring(an ongoing one ) , build their trust (this one here is a huge process) and attend to them in the best of manner.
To not see (most times) :
a 6 yr old as 16. - or else everything will seem rude. What will that child grow up into?
Thou sometimes yes that child could be as wise as a 60 yr old.
Or a 4 Yr old as 40 - or else it's just too much expression for that tender age. Old soul.
Thou sometimes yes that child could be as matured as a 14 yr old.
Or even a 1 Yr old as 10 - or else it's gonna be misjudged for being spoilt n asking for too much.
Thou sometimes yes that child could be as tender loving as a 100 yr old. So pure.
A child is still learning. Learning to express themselves using only what they have come to know so far thru their exploration so far.
Come on, even adults struggle with this, at times we regret our words or emotions and how we even express it in a not so pleasant or best manner. So imagine, that child's plight🤣
N let's not get real innocence mixed up or mistaken for disciplinary matter.
Take a step back if needed. To also see it thru a child's eyes
*I know I'm not alone in this, definitely. 🥰
