The Impact Of Mother’s Employment

Posted by – January 8, 2014

In a typical and patriarchal type of household, women or mothers are usually unemployed and are focused only on taking care of her children, abiding her husband and making sure that everything in the house is in order. It is the role of the mother to take care of the family emotionally whereas the husband or the men are task to provide the financial and material needs of the family.

055 mothers impact

But as time goes by, years pass by the role of men and women are interchanging and sometimes you can hardly differentiate the both. As what they say, there is no such thing that men can do but women cannot. For all the things possible to human can also be done by women, but definitely there things that only women can do such as getting pregnant and breastfeeding.

As I have said, the roles of men and women nowadays have switches. There are actually homes wherein the mother is the breadwinner of the family and the father is the one who stayed at home to take care of the family. And that is where the concept of househusband comes in. Househusband refers to the family set up wherein the husband who supposedly the one working for the family is staying at home to perform the role of the wife and the wife on the other hand takes the shoes of her husband as the provider of the family.

An employed mother is not the same as the mother who stayed at home. They say that children grow up better if they have their mothers at home to take care for them. So what are the mother’s impacts on their children giving that they are employed?

An employed mother will have lesser time to be with her family especially with her children. And with that, the children will not likely to have a close relationship with them especially if they seldom see her. Another mother’s impact is not their children feel less loved. It may not be the case for everyone but to most, it is.

Children will also feel less secured if they do not have their mother with them always. Psychologists say that it is the mother who can emotionally understand the children well compared to their father. Jealousy to other children will also develop to the children of working mother. As a kid, children always tends to be dependent to their mother, they always seek the care and the comfort that their mother can give to them. Mother’s are the number one supporter of the children, so in case the mother is missing the child will less likely to be productive.

The Impact Of The Mother To A Child

Posted by – December 11, 2013

157 mothers impactThe actions of what our mothers do for our sake are most often taken for granted. We often forget all the things they do for us when all their acts are being overshadowed by our self-centeredness. Let us take a moment to remind ourselves how great a mother’s impact is to us. Let us remember how important these women are in our lives.

 

A Mother’s Touch

Even before you were born, a mother’s touch already has a significant effect on your growth. Her touch was a mother’s impact on how you developed on her womb. The way she rubbed her belly made you kick inside her womb. When you came out in the world, it was her hand which held you most of the time. It was her hand that helped you after you fell. It was her hand you would hold when you crossed the street. As you grow up, you would have those bad days or those days when you would feel really scared. It was your mother’s tap on your shoulder that encouraged you to face the day with strength and confidence. Through those rough days when you would end up going home in tears, it was your mother’s hug that would make you stop crying. It was her hug that would make you feel a lot better. That is a mother’s impact.

 

A Mother’s Smile

A mother’s first reaction upon knowing you were growing inside her womb is a feeling of joy. It is that smile on her face that marked her joy and excitement of having you. When she was in the delivery room, her smile will appear again as soon as you come out of her and you are placed on her chest by the doctor. Even when all her energy is drained during delivery, she will still put an effort to smile on you to welcome you into the world. As a kid, it is your mother’s smile that brightened up your day. Remember how she comes home with a big grin on her face because she is about to see you after a long day of being away from you.

 

A Mother’s Praise

Growing up, we all experienced being teased in school for how we look, for what we wore, and for anything. But, we are constantly praised by our mother. She would always tell you how beautiful you are, how smart you are, and how funny you are. She would always emphasize all the positive things about you. In becoming an adult, it would always be her praises that we would seek from the grades that we get in school to how we raise our own kids. A mother’s praise even motivates us farther to doing better and achieving more. That is the mother’s impact on her children.

Pros And Cons Of Being A Young Mother

Posted by – October 30, 2013

In today’s generation more and more women are being a mother at a younger age. By younger age, I mean women getting pregnant at the age of 20 and below. Although the society, more often than not, considers this as a bane, there is also a boon in being a young mom. Here are some pros and cons of being a mother at a young age.

059 being an older mom

Being young means you still have a lot to learn and a lot to improve on. You are still on the verge of discovering the world and how it works. Going through this stage might be difficult as you are still trying to be independent in a lot of ways, but doing this with a baby on your watch can be very difficult not just physically and financially but also emotionally. It can be easier for you if your family is well off or your boyfriend, live-in partner, or husband is financially stable. However, if not, then prepare yourself to be facing struggles over money and constant fighting with your partner or family.

Although maturity is not measured through age, but being an older mom has a lot of benefits compared to being young and having a baby. Getting older often and should mean that you are more secured with your finances, your partner, and your decision whether you want a baby or not. When you are old enough, you might, although not all, have a stable source of income and are mature enough to handle emotional and financial problems. You are also not getting younger and your option is reduced, and so you have to decide whether you want to have a partner to grow old with or not.

However, it is sometimes difficult for older women to get pregnant. According to some experts, women are in their pregnancy prime when they are in their early 20’s. Older women are more at the risk of having complications such as miscarriage, genetic disorders, and surgical deliveries. Plus, when people age, we are being more at the risk of having various medical conditions which could limit us to procreate.

Recent studies show that babies who are born when their mother is in their early 20’s have longer life span than those whose mothers gave birth to them when they were older. The risk of having miscarriage is also lower in young mothers. It is also easier for younger women since they are at lower risk of having high blood pressure and diabetes. Also, younger women are less likely to have premature babies.

Being ready for pregnancy, though, does not depend on what age you have. If you are physically, emotionally, and financially stable then you are much more ready to become a mother, whatever age you have.-

What Are The Traits Of Being The Best Mother

Posted by – October 14, 2013

004 being the best motherWhat does it mean to be the best mother? Every mom can be the best mother for their children as long as they are doing the right things and giving the love and care that their children need. Nobody can tell you how to be the best mom but you can learn from others and especially from their mistakes. Not all children are blessed to have the best mother in the world because there are children who are victim of abuse in any form. Now, if you want to be the best mother for your children, you need to know and develop the traits of being the best mother. Let me tell you some of the good traits of being the best mom.

 

Loving & Caring

If there is one person that would give so much love and care for their children that would be the mother. Mothers spend more time with their children than the fathers. It is their responsibility to nurture and raise their children in good values and god-fearing. But on top of that, mothers would always give unconditional love to their children. No mother can bear seeing their children in pain or suffering. They would always do things that would keep their children safe from any harm. This is the number one traits of being the best mom. You should be a loving and a caring mom.

 

Understanding

Another great trait is to be understanding. I understand that children most of the time could be naughty and hard-headed but it is part of our responsibilities as a mom to be understanding. Before you get mad, try to know the reason first why your children did it. Try to understand that they are children and they way they think may not be leveled to your level of thinking.

 

Patience

Next will be patience. As a mother, this I think will be the hardest trait to develop. Children could be naughty most of the times and hard-headed especially if they reach the age of adolescence. They would start to answer you back, disobey, your rules, and even disrespect you. So, develop that patience and never give-up because when they reach the mature age, they would realize the things that you have told them.

 

A Friend

Last, you need to be a friend to your children. A friend knows how to listen to the problem, go down to the interests and their level, and try to support him with his or her interests by providing her with the things that he or she needs.

These are the traits of being the best mother. These are not easy traits to develop but as you strive to be the best, it will pay off.

Stress Relief Tips That Really Work

Posted by – September 25, 2013

153 stress relief tipsWe all have our own stress factors that we need to deal with every day. Stress can be dangerous if it’s not managed properly. Stress can cause and trigger so many serious illnesses like heart problems, diabetes, high blood pressure, psychological problems, and emotional problems which can also lead to depression. These are not good because these illnesses are killers. They can kill you. So, if you care enough about yourself especially your health, you need to find ways on how you can manage your stress and just live a normal healthy life.

Now, let me give you my top stress relief tips that really works for me and I’m sure for you too. We may have different types of stress factors but the solution to that in simply proper management and relaxation. Stress cannot be cured or manage by another stress. You need to find something that would combat it. Like for example, the factors that can cause your stress could a person, a place, event, memories, tragedy, responsibilities, and guilt. It is important that you know what is causing your stress so that you will know where to start and what to manage. So, for example; the factor that is causing your stress is a person let us say you boss. Boss can be annoying and you might hate them because of their attitude, rudeness, and putting pressure on your work. But you need to understand that it is his job to do that. If you are stress with your work and him shout and yelling at you when you make mistakes, that is exactly the same treatment that he get from his boss too.

So, when the situation is tough and if you have deadline to catch up, try to compose yourself and be organize. I know that when pressure strikes you are all panicking. But panicking will not solve any issues; instead it will only cause more problems because your mind can’t think very well. So, try to relax your mind so you can think well of the things that needs to be done. If you are relaxed, you don’t easily crack under pressure. Or, try to get away from the situation and breathe some air outside. This will help you relax and calm your mind. Your mind can function very well when you are relaxed and calm. Don’t let your emotion control you. If your emotions is the one leading your actions, you will probably end up messing thing up instead of solving the problems.

158 parentingBeing a parent of one child is not an easy task. How much more parenting several children? Being good a good parent is not an easy task. You need to be able to properly monitor your child and provide all their needs physically, mentally, and emotionally. You need to ensure they become good individuals as they grow up and will also become good parents to their children in the future. You need to do a lot of sacrifices just to be able to provide all those needs so that they will grow and become the person you want them to be.

There are some parents who thought providing all the material things their children wants will already make them become good parents. That is actually only a small part of parenting. As you know, children also seek for their parent’s love, care, and attention. How will you be able to properly guide your children if you are always busy and you spend most of your time away from them? Sometimes, such action leads to the child finding the love and attention they are looking for from other people around them. In most cases, the lack of attention from parents leads to the child becoming rebellious and easily gets influenced by other people whom they are always with.

That is one reason why learning how to balance your time between work and family is an important part of parenting. Even though it may be quite difficult to achieve, it is achievable if parents would only try their best to find solutions for the problem. Yes, parents do need to work hard in order to provide all the family’s needs and wants. But, it should also be done without affecting your time for your children. Thankfully, technology has provided people with many ways to communicate. Through this, you will be able to talk to your loved ones even if the distance between you are very far. So, even if you are not there physically for your children, always try to make sure to ask them how they are doing by calling them. Even just a simple act as that will already provide your children with ideas that you are always there beside them even if you are not physically present. As a mother or a father, you need to let your children understand that everything you do is for their benefit and for them to be able to live a comfortable life.

If you have decided to have your own family, you don’t only need to feed yourself. This time, you have children to feed with. Are you sure that you can raise your own children? If you are not ready, you better not try. It will be difficult. If you just get into this stage without considering your future and your children future, regrets arise. Therefore, seek proper guidance. Talk to the right persons. Don’t be shy. Your age is not an issue. Preparing for the possibilities of married life won’t happen in just a day or a week.

Is this age enough to finally settle? Some don’t consider the significance of the age when planning to start their own families but others do. What are the pros if you really hit 35 or more than before you become a parent?

Maturity is the first thing. If you become a parent right after you turn 36 then you are mature enough when it comes to many thing. Your level of thinking is totally different. You see things in brighter perspectives. You can handle stress even the worst. You are mature enough to handle little conflicts. You know what really your responsibilities are towards you partner and most importantly, towards the kids. Little children are very dependent. In everything they do, they need their parents with them. So, if an 18-year old mother simply cry when she is in conflict with her kid, a 35-year old mother will work on things than cry. Instead of regretting, you probably think of how to solve the problem. When maturity is ripe, problems can be easily solved.

At the age of 35 or more than, you already have a stable job and getting a stable job is definitely important especially if you have kids to feed with. Those who have no stable jobs who are already family men and women experience a lot of difficulties. Therefore, wait until you are stable before you build your own family.

Fertility slows down and some don’t have enough producing hormones. There are also complains telling that they find it hard to play with the kids due to age. Well, put limits to what you can do. If you think you can’t run longer, take a rest. Make your kid understand. For those with pregnancy issues, they need to consult their doctors or change their old lifestyles.

Discovering What Is A Mother’s Impact To A Child

Posted by – February 14, 2013

085 mothers impactA lot of people are usually shaped by their mothers which can explain how they see the world when they are older. It can also explain a lot about what one should see as something the way their parents do. These are people who mold their children since birth because they would like to be able to allow them to be great people and adults. It is not easy being a mother too and the best way that one is able to see to it that these things can really happen is when they are able to make sure that they have an impact in their kids’ lives. The results are usually seen when the kids do grow up to be adults.

Parents really have a big impact on the childhood of their kids because they are the ones who are putting how to see things and what is right and wrong. Sometimes, it is not easy to be a parent if one is unable to teach such necessary things and concepts. That is why there are books about parenting and what to do about kids’ questions. They are the ones who teach their kids the concept about religion, politics, and money. They are definitely the ones who teach about love and hate which can even have a blurry line most of the time.

A mother is someone who teach their kids to be human in a more nurturing way than a father. This is because they are definitely emotional about most of the things that they are concerned about. A father is more about discipline and hard work. A mother’s impact on their child’s life is really something to be careful about. This is because how they teach their children to love is crucial because they are also the ones who teach their kids to hate.

This is also why whoever said that everything starts at home is definitely right. We learn to love and hate when we are with our family which is why it is important to really teach the kids how we should see this. We also learn the concept of what is right and wrong when we are at home. A lot of people think that we learn from friends but the truth is that we really do have our friends influence on us. Though the truth is that it is our parents who have taught us about the world that we live in which is why we need to also learn to think for ourselves when we go through our lives.

When we start to grow up, we see things that our parents didn’t teach us. So, keeping an open mind is crucial when we do because we will definitely end up learning more when we do. A lot of people also know that there are things that we learn from the people we meet when we are older. If our parents didn’t teach us to be open yet cautious, then we might not interact with the world around us. That is why it is important that we learn and we are taught to get out of our comfort zone.

Our vision of the world is greatly influenced by our home and what is taught to us. However, one should realize that when we are growing up, it is our responsibility to take care of ourselves. Even when one has their own children, it is important to teach them how to be honest, love, care, and understand without sacrificing their own values or stepping on other people. Sometimes, that is the key to allow the child to develop beautifully.

To begin with, you need to understand that there is no such thing as a perfect way in becoming the best parent because each child is so different and their needs constantly change as well. Common sense sometimes works, but children don’t always respond to motivators for the adult and this is something that you need to remember all the time.

With the ever-changing world and issues that grandparents never had to deal with, a skills list to help parents become better may prove useful. The list starts with having a consistent discipline. This simply means that you have to be fair and firm with discipline, but always act out of love. As you punish your child, you need to let him understand the reason why you are doing it. By doing so, he will do the same when he becomes a parent himself.

In addition, as you become consistent in your reactions, your child will always recognize the boundaries and will do all that he can to never disappoint you. Yet, you still need to make sure that your children know the rules and what behavior you expect of them. They should know the consequences of their actions. You also need to do a daily care with your child.

You do need to set a regular bedtime so your children get sufficient rest. No matter what happen, you need to make them realize that a goodnight sleep is a must and that this is there is no way they can be healthy without a proper sleep. If your kids are feeling sick then you need to take them to the doctor or dentist for preventative medical care and to help them heal when they are injured or sick. You also need to be with them the entire time so they can feel the warmth of your love too. The display of love you have given your child will make him to be among the most confident adult later on in his life.

Now, the cost of living is very expensive. If the father cannot afford to provide everything just because his salary isn’t enough then the mother should do something. What do you think is the best thing to do? The mom can decide to engage in a mini-business wherein she can earn extra cash for the family’s needs. She can put up a little fruit stall, make her own portraits, sell goods, accept laundry, or even work away from home. This is why other moms prefer to work even if they are not with the kids. But, as much as possible, they want their little ones to be with them. They find ways. These women are not just to take care of the children especially when their partners are not around. Don’t you know that they have the greatest impact to the kids when it comes to their beliefs, philosophies, attitude, and dreams? Kids are really attached to their moms because they are their number one idols. This is why mothers need to be more than 100% careful with what they say, what they do, what they feel, and what they want their kids to become.

Moms do their best to raise their kids. They want nothing but the best for them. They want nothing but to see their kids as productive and settled in the future. In many ways, they finance schooling, buy healthy foods, offer them clothes for good, treat them during birthdays and the like. The kind of mother you are will have an impact to your kids. In what way do you think your character and beliefs will affect them? If you used to be caring and thoughtful to the kids then for sure, they’ll do the same. If you give importance to every school activity, little achievement and weekend then they’ll grow seeing the big importance of spending quality time with the people they love. If you are strict but you admit your faults when needed will make them think that it is not wrong to commit mistakes once admitted. As what we used to say, mother’s knows best. This is real.

When it comes to the character of the kids, what they show off to others are the things they have learned at home. A child learns so many things at home. His ABCs, her moves, his emotions, his beliefs, his attitude towards the realities of life, and more can be traced back to his very home. For sure, her mom is her greatest idol. He tries to follow the recipes made in the kitchen, speak the way his mama did, think just like her, and even models the good behaviors. For starters, teach your kids how to become responsible. Tell them that you can’t be with them all throughout their lives. Give them responsibilities you think they can perform better. Having a good job is cool. Now, when you bring your kids sometimes at the workplace, don’t act negatively. Let them see how rewarding it is to own a job and get paid.

Mothers are often strict and good in handling finances. Yes, we work to earn. But, there are still other reasons. At their very young age, kids should know the right connection between work and cash. They should be taught how to save enough and spend right. See what can a mother do to her kids?

Girls tend to be very conscious of their bodies. Some of them believe that having that slender and long physique is what society consider as acceptable. Few might just naturally be very concern with their health. Others might not even care at all. But they could also be a lot more other things. In some cases, they tend to overeat. It might be because of stress or other emotional trauma that they have experienced. Some might just lost the habit of checking on themselves every once and a while. They just notice the big change when it is already too late to stop. Nevertheless, staying fit is something that most girls wish to maintain. But what if you lost that sexy figure when you had your first baby? Unfortunately, most mothers end up weighing two times more than what they do before. Pregnancy requires a lot from you and eating is just a part of it. Furthermore, mothers do not usually return to their body size just yet.

Reach up the cupboard and stretch those arms. Walk around the counter in order to get the knives. This allows your body to move and get the energy needed to burn some of your accumulated body fat. Having a garden can also be a good idea. Then you will have a reason to walk around, get down on the ground to till the soil, water the plants, or just stroll and enjoy nature. You might also want to try more physical activities by visiting a neighbor next door and have a little chit-chat. Strolling in malls might also help. Go window-shopping if you don’t want to spend. But if you really want to burn those fats sooner, try enrolling in gym classes. Or better yet look for a weight loss program that will suit your lifestyle.

There are actually a lot of different ways to maintain a perfectly shaped body. Most moms are worried because their husbands might not love them anymore because they changed big time. But this does not change who you really are. Losing weight is not a major concern when talking about love of family. It’s just that when you love your family you also have to make sure you are as good as new. Because mothers know best and they are important in keeping the family as one.
