When your child is born you are not sure what interests they will have and are not even thinking about it at the time. The blessing you have before you is all you see through the happy tears in your eyes. After all the sleepless nights are over and they have grown into young people they will express interests in doing different things. Please let them try and, when the time comes, participate in the activities your child is involved in. It will make a huge difference not only in their life but in yours as well.
So precious and yours
How Do You Participate In The Activities Your Child Is Involved In
There are several ways you can accomplish this. The easiest way is just to be there. Your child is going to look for you at whatever event they are involved in. They want and need your support…Please don’t let them down.
A second way is to become the team parent. This will involve taking more time and organizing things like carpools and snacks. It can be a rewarding experience and you will get to know all of the parents and children in the activity. It is fun but only if you make it so!
A third way is to help out at the games or event by officiating, selling candy, or whatever else is needed. At most events parents are needed to assist in things and when you help it helps both your child and the rest of the team.
The last thing is to coach or be an assistant to the activity. This would mean giving more time but most of the teams will need help until your child is in high school. You don’t have to be an expert to help run drills and be an assistant coach. If you are an expert you could be the head coach and share your knowledge.
Teach the kids to love the outdoors
Just Be There
Your children should be the most important children in your life. Watching them play a sport, sing a song, play an instrument, debate, or whatever they choose to do is a privilege you must not miss. They want you and need you in their lives…Please be an active parent who really cares and don’t disappoint them!
Thanks for visiting!
I know that raising children alone is no easy task. I started raising my children alone when my son was 6 and my daughter was 4. The reason I am writing this is to express my true appreciation of the unconditional love and all out effort given by single parents. You are really raising children alone and putting the needs of your children first!
You can do it! It can be a tough situation at times. You have to give up a lot of your patience, time and energy but you will succeed! When you are raising your children alone the difficult areas are many. You must exercise patience in dealing with their illnesses , picking them up from school when they get hurt or sick at school, dealing with friend issues, teaching the kids to do household chores, answering questions, and many other things. Always think before you react to them! Try hard to keep a smile and not do something you will regret later.!
Tackling all of the issues presented to you by your children without hurting their feelings can be difficult. Responding to them in a reasonable, loving manner, is what your child wants. A loving and trusting parent child relationship really turns out to be a lifelong rewarding adventure. You will build a solid foundation with them that will last a lifetime! This closeness will extend into the relationship you have with grand children and the bonds you are able to form with them.
Raising Children Alone: You Can Do It!
I know you will do well because your kids are your number one priority. Human beings make their share of mistakes but it is okay to apologize to your children if you make one or even more! We are not perfect people and we should acknowledge our errors. All of us must believe we can succeed at loving our children enough and taking great care of them because if we didn’t we would not be parents
Loving your kids is so natural and such a wonderful feeling! After we get through the busy traumatic childhood then teen yeasr they will become adults. We will have watched the kids we will always love with all of our hearts become parents. They will count on us because we were there for them and it is a wonderful thing!
It may say daddy on the sign above but it does not exclude single moms out there. I respect all of you too..I know how hard you have to work, the sacrifices you make and the extra love you give everyday to your children and I say you are the best!
Thanks for sharing your time with me.
