I thought I'd be the best mother in the world! When i was a young girl i adore children, growing up i developed a nurturing instinct that i thought was enough to be a nutturing mom but now i have kids of my own and in every turn i fight with my teenagers. I often ask myself what am i doing wrong. Being a mother is suppose to be simple. My children are my life but why can't i get through to them. Are you a mother like me? Can you tell me how difficult is that?

I guess being a mom is the most noble work in this world.It's hard to be one because you sometimes have to sacrifice your own time, happiness, career and even a night out with friends.I guess being a mom is sacrificing some of the things you want not because you wanted it but you have to do it....Children nowadays needs love, hugs, attention and appreciation from mothers.Me, I stopped working when my daughter is 3 yrs old.At first, I was hesitant but now that my daughter is a 6th grader I can tell that I've made the right decision...My daughter is so smart, consistent honor, very loving,we have this kind of connection I'll miss if she'll be on her own someday.

I think when the kids become teenagers, it is the most difficult time to deal with them. I often think about it, I don't want our baby to be a punk teen in the future... and at the same time, I don't want to fight with our kids or let them feel they are being forced to do something... I think being a parent especially mother is not easy, we need to take care of the kids and we have to take care of ourselves good first and have a controled temper.

Hi jade, Being a parent for me has to be the toughest job in the world. Children do not come with manuals so it is a learning process the entire way. It take a great deal of quality, love, persistence and discipline to handle their upbringing. I have been very successful with the two thus far and attribute it to my hard efforts and prayers.

Hi, I am totally agreed that it is not easy to be a mother. I am a mother of one little boy, I spent most of my time for my son,I sacrifice myself for him. Actually I intend to go out and find a job,because of him, I have to put it on hold and probably have to wait for few more years,then only I will have chance to work again. Of course, having a good relationship with our kids are pretty important and as a parents, we have to spent more time with them since they are young. Bring them out for a walk once a week and play some games with them at night. Read them a storybooks before going to bed. Try to control your emotion not to fight with your kids, have a good chat with them and solve the main problem. There is no point to fight against each other,the family won't live in harmony. You can always consider to have a family getaway,that will be a good chance to know your kids better and understand each other better.
