A Proud Mother Of My Boys
Hii.. this is my first post on social media, that too an article on my kids and my parenting!!!! What more can I expect!!!!
I have two teenage boys, elder one 17 yrs and younger one 13 years. Always have found them very obedient, following my guidance and instructions religiously, but often wondered what if they are left in the world to take decisions in my absence. Always some sort of fear n anxiety crept in on such ideas.
In this covid crisis, I and my whole family including my hubby, my parents, and my brother were tested COVID positive. But god’s grace, my kids(boys) were isolated from day one. But the biggest problem was how will they manage when all of us are isolated in our house itself.
We ordered food from one of our relatives. The big problem was solved. But the way these boys managed the chores of the house from morning till night, from washing their clothes, drying them and folding them to reheating the food before serving all of us, to keeping their toilets and bathroom clean. The way they both coordinated with each other about the sharing of their duties, as both were busy with their online classes and exams is really appreciable.
Otherwise, they were always fighting, arguing with each other when things were ok. These 20 days really made me feel low, as the rest of my family members along with me were going through a very tough phase, but at the same time was proud of my teenage boys and of course of my parenting success.
I rested assured that my kids are capable of taking care of not only themselves but have that inclination to serve others too, without a frown on their face. What more do I need in life.
Each difficulty faced in life comes out with wonderful results and gives us clarity about our existence and our ability to deal with the issues and rewards of course will be revealed at the end. It proved right in my life.
