i owe a lot to my mother.whenever i used to start acting funny,she used to say,"One day you'll have kids, and I hope they turn out just like you!"now,whenever ,i see their naughtiness,i wonder whether her prediction has come true???????

Your mother was very much right. When we have our own children then only we realize, how naught and disorganized we were, when we were kids. We would not eat so many vegetables and pulses and will make hue and cry for food. Now, when our own kids do the same to us, we get to realise that how did our parents tolerated us. Now, we have become more submissive and learn to adjust with the situations, because now we are not kids, we are parents and we need to listen to our kids' demands and attend to their pranks.

It is you , who attends to your kids most of the time and you definitely would scold them and shout at them, when they make you dance. However, hopefully, your hubby spends lesser time with them (in your comparison), hence they like him.

Hello my friend riyasam Ji, Yes, you are very much right in concluding these facts. It has some natural formules, like one saying that whatever is sowed is always reaped same. If some one has laid stones/thorns, how one can have fruits to eat. Also, in fact children only teaches. Same thing was applicable to your mother as well, while she must be of your children's age. This gows on and on. There is no escape. Every child will pay you back in the same coins. This is Godly arrangements. may god bless you and have great time.

Hello my friend riyasam ji, I only know, 'CHILD-HOOD IS THE BEST ANDPRIME TIME IN ANY ONE'S LIFE" so let's encourage children to enjoy and try and sustain their naughtyness, under control, so that it does not harm them. may God bless and have great time.

That is a beautiful thing to say for a mother.It is tinged with affecting and yearning to see her grand children being mischievous.No mom will want her son to suffer with the children.Your mom must be a very nice lady. "Spread a smile"

I guess it IS justice on many levels, yes. And I'm sure that our own Parents will often smile quietly to themselves because now they are in the position of being able to enjoy their Grandchildren without the hassles we put them through ourselves. They get to take part in their Grandchildren's lives and then hand 'em back at the end of the day! lol. At least you will get to feel the same way when your own kids grow up and start families of their own.

You know I hate it when parents say such a thing to their children. My son is expecting their first baby and I hope they do not have a son just like him. He was a horrible child that drove me to drink when he was growing up. I do not wish that kid on anyone. He was crying before he came out of the womb, I had C-section and he never stopped crying. You would look at him and he crying. He also had so many food allergies, milk and soy milk allergies he was sickly. I pray his baby is like our daughter who was a happy and quiet baby.

May be you are still naughty now and your kids are just imitating you! All children are naughty and I dont think we would like to have very quite kids at home. So naturally all parents think that the grandchildren are as naughty as their children were! By the way I have had the hear the same sentence when my kids were small.....

My mom used to say similar things this one and "one day you will be a mother and you will see how it is when...." I used to make fun of her. Now I know how right she is. When I tell my son to clean his room I get a flashback, when I get angry because he wont eat I get a flash back, when he is sick I get a flashback. Now I know mother knows best.

Ummm your mom is sure have her sweet revenge now It may be so but don’t let that cloud your mind. After all, our kids are supposed to resemble us to some extent and even then, kids of certain age will always act funny, no matter whom they do or do not resemble. It was just your mom’s way of warning you of things to come

I think your mother just wants to tell you how it is to be a mother and one day you will experience such feeling. It is not easy to be a mother I have to say. I am not yet a mother, but I am afraid that I can not take the responsibility under grace the way my mother does to us (up to this very moment).

I'd complain about some misbehavior of my children and my Dad would say "you're payin' for your raisin'". You know the old saying What goes 'round comes 'round. While our children may not behave exactly the way we did, we were kids once too, and I doubt there are any of us that didn't misbehave.

My mother - World's best mom, my mother
Was your mother my mother, sounds like the same advice that I got when I was younger.. My mother didn't just say that we would have kids like us one day, she wished them on us.. I remember her saying that "she hoped every one of us had at least one just like us" and I believe that so far we have.. It is a mothers curse on her children, one that you never realize until your kids give you the same kinds of trouble that you gave to your own mother.. I do wish that I had been better to my mother, life would have been easier now..

This is both justice & science. After all your genes are expected to similar in behaviour. Regarding divine justice- there is golden saying " you reap what you sow" If you sow wheat you get wheat, when you sow mango you get mangoes.... so is it not fair that get naughtiness in return of naughtiness ??? Enjoy the beautiful naughtiness till it lasts. Kids do grow up fast now-a-days. Love to the imps.

My parents have said the same thing me. They said that whatever you have done with your parents this will be done to you with the children. Is it like children are born and they will tell you " it's pay back time mom!" LOL. Maybe it happens or just a mere coincidence. But I usually hear this from the olds that you'll surely payback with what you have done with your own parents.

i think your child's naughtyness is hereditary. they got it from you, and as your mother used to warn you abou it and would not listen, they will also do the same to you. its like this saying that like mother like daughter. it will go on and on with the family line.
