I love this quote. As a mother of two daughters, I couldn’t help but be affected when I saw it. Of course I believe that the quote still resonates with mothers of sons too. As parents, it is our job to be the adults we want our children to aspire to be. It’s something which has been playing on my mind recently, especially as my eldest two are now at the very impressionable teenage stage it has caused me to stop and think about what I am really teaching my children and the example I am setting.
I’ve never been one for partying and going out much. I don’t smoke, I don’t drink and I don’t do drugs. But I do have a problem with money. I basically rubbish with it. I suffer with anxiety and depression and one of my symptoms and releases is shopping. It’s something which I need to address pretty quickly, but I honestly don’t know where to start with it. That doesn’t mean that I’m not going to try.
Could you try harder? What traits do you want to pass on to your little ones?
