“Do you like to make a promise?”
July 18, 2017 6:58am CST
There are times that we make promises. It is a simple word that can result to either, make or break the heart of others. “Would you agree?” For some parents, they tend to make promises to their children even it is impossible. “Can we blame them?” I think it shouldn’t be. They did it for the sake of love to their children. But then, we have to weigh if it is the right thing to do. “Why?” Some children are not like others who can comprehend it in just a snap of fingers. In reality, the common quote: "Promises meant to be broken” was proven in some circumstances. “What do you think?” Image Credit: a.wattpad.com

I don't make promises. Life is too unpredictable. I don't promise my children anything either, there is enough disappointment in this world and I don't want to be the one that causes more of it for them. I always tell them-Maybe about everything.

@Shavkat You are right my friend. It's hard to make promises if you know deep within your self that you'll not be able to fulffill it. It will be a big disappointment indeed to the person to whom you made your promise and you'll turned out to be a big liar.
I agree. We should be in self-reliant in giving promises. There are so many things to consider in life but we can promise things if it is possible. I do agree that disappointment will be the end result of kept on breaking promises to others.
My word is my bond, I was taught as a young child, not to break promises. My children all know that I would move heaven and earth just to keep my promises to them. I do the same to everyone. If I can't, then I will tell the person so after many tryings. (I am very forgetful these days however, so the kids have to constantly remind me. )
I think you are a good mother like the others. They can give promises and so gentle to explain things if it is impossible. The bond between a mother and a child are so special. Communication will be understood despite promises weren't fulfilled.
