Patience Test

They say that everything you say to your child is absorbed, cataloged and remembered. I think so too if I base it on my experience as a child. As an only child, to be exact. I just can't help but wonder why my 9 year old daughter is at a stage where she acts and talks as if she's absorbed and remembered nothing. I frequently find myself giving out a deep big sigh just so I'd let go of the eagerness to give her a slap..err, i mean tap...no, i mean pinch! I really don't want us to come to that point. I think every parent passes through a moment like this. She is definitely very sweet and she knows what's right, she's been well-taught by my (late) mom. I just heard myself last night and this morning asked her - "Do I always have to remind you that?" "Do you not get tired that you have to hear the same reminders everyday?" "Where is that smart Keanna I used to know?"... I am hurt throwing those questions to her but I just have to. I even told her that she will understand my point by the time she become a parent herself, or when I am no longer around. My patience is put into a test, really. Glad that I was trained and gifted with a lot of it.

I guess this is a phase we really have to go through as a parent that no early childhood education degree could help us avoid. Maybe, I will have to look up for a Guide to Online Schools
and see if they have any "later" child education classes. It must be true that kids do pass by a attitudinal change inevitably. They tend to be influenced by a lot of people and things. That is where communication is very crucial and important. I just pray for me to be guided as well because soon, I have to face adolescence and answer questions that may rise about puberty. Waaah! I miss my baby Keanna!

Hay naku sis, I feel your frustration, my son is the same way sometimes. With daughter not so much trouble. You're doing a good job and keep it up.

Your daughter is a beauty. They do grow up quickly. Mothers seem to be able to handle every stage that comes along--you'll do fine. Mickie ;)

Being a mom taught me the real meaning of patience. And is always tested when dealing with my children. But hey, that's what we're here for, to never get tired of teaching them and guiding them.
