As I sit down to write this blog, my son is sleeping soundly in the room. In two weeks time he’ll be turning three years old. I can’t believe that it has been almost three years - three years of a bittersweet journey, I should say. There is no amount of book reading and note taking that can truly prepare us for the adventure we'd experience as a mother. If there was a detailed instruction manual that would come with your child, motherhood would be a piece of cake.
In today’s modern society, people are more worried about what we have than who we are. We seem to have an addiction to obtaining something that is valuable and desirable to others. We thought that the only way to be completely happy is by making a lot of money, buy the coolest gadgets, the trendiest clothes and having all of the best and newest accessories. My husband and I are not millionaires so we couldn’t spoil our son as far as our financial status is concerned. So we’ll do our best to raise our son a humble and non-materialistic, no matter our circumstances. If you want to raise children who don’t wrap their self-esteem in their possessions, here are some ways to raise non-materialistic children.
For as long as I can remember, I've always been that type of person who couldn't tolerate pain very well. A little prick on the finger or scrape to the knee and I would literally go nuts. I've always wanted to be a mother but just the thought of giving birth and having a human being coming out of your vagina would literally scare the shit out of me.
