Because of the many challenges that come with parenting, you may find that your own needs take a back seat to those of your children. People who have children understand what it's like to be a parent, therefore they make a concerted effort to prioritize their kids' wants and needs.
Some people may not understand why parents do this, but it always turns out well in the end because no parent wants to see their child unhappy. Parents always make sure their kids do the first thing because they love them. When you truly care about someone, you put them ahead of everything else.
However, there are times when you need to act like a child, not in a bad way, but just a little bit, since kids don't realize that their parents are also people, and that as much as they love their kids, their parents have needs of their own and want to keep some things to themselves.
Lines formed after people saw a video of a mother and father relaxing together in a living room. The reason this video shocked so many people is because children nearly saw their parents enjoying ice pops without presenting to them. When the youngsters entered the house, their parents had to hide food from them and pretend as if they were doing nothing, because if the kids saw them eating, the parents would have had to explain why they weren't allowed to have dessert.
When this happens, it's called a "follow-up." One could assume the worst of these parents based on this film, but the truth is that we can't give our kids everything, and they need to learn to balance their drive for independence with their obligation to their loved ones. a matter of fact, it's wrong because we need to teach them how to share, and you can't teach a youngster something by telling them; you have to demonstrate them by doing. Although it can be challenging at times, many parents read the comments left on their children's posts.
