First let me say that I am a mariied 26 year old women with three kids. I have started a small in home daycare center. I have just started watching two children and may have two more in the next month. I told my mom aout it and she told me that I did not need to do this that I needed to focus on nothen but my own kids. But what she does not realize is that I am still focus on my children and I am doing what I think is best for my family. i am providing an income for my family and I am fulling my dreamand that is to teach children. I went to college and major in early childhood education. My goodness why can't she just be happy for me for once? I would love for my daughter to fullfill all her dreams.

My mother is the same way, she is never happy with what I do. I am married 30 year old mother with four children. I take care of 2 extra children as well. If you think/know what you are doing is the best thing than that is what you should be doing. Focus on your family's needs. That is all that matters. I think it is great for the kids to have other children around to play with, learn with and interact with and at the same time you are also providing income for your family. where is the wrong in that? You keep fulfilling your dreams and your daughter will fulfill hers.

Thank you for your kinf words I am so glad to hair that I am not the only one going though this. The true question is at what point do we stop being kids in their eyes and become the adults that we are?

You need to do what you want to do, what is going to be best for you and your family. There is nothing wrong with running a day care in your home. If nothing else, it gives your children others to play with. You are providing love and care for other's children while at the same time developing your own children socially. Don't worry too much about your mother. You are an adult and she needs to realize that.

I know that I don't need to worry about what mymother says. I guess it just bothers me a little that I am an adult and nothen I do is good enough for her.

It sounds like you are doing really well, but your mum does not understand this it sounds as though she has always expected more from you and it would be nice for once if she approved of what you were doing with your life. Take heart because you know you are doing well and hopefully one day she will realise that too.
