    This video really made me see things differently. It is quite a shock.
    I try really hard to be a smiley, patient mum, but I can t manage it. And every morning I wake up feeling sorry for arguing the night before with the kids (for not doing everything on time, not wanting to brush their teeth, not wanting to study etc) and just now I saw this…and it made me feel worse…

      I am sorry it made you feel worse, but usually I post the things that have affected me the most. Like a reminder. This ad is an old Australian ad (I think six years ago they aired it for the first time) but I believe it is so TRUE. I even see the ‘worst’ side of me when Yianni immitates me to ‘correct’ Iliana. Talk about feeling like a crappy parent 😦

    I haven’t seen this for years as you say – in fact I had forgotten about it. Such a portrayal of life in a bad way. I don’t want to hear more of this ‘crappy parent thing’ either young lady, hold your head high for being a mum… we take the worst with the best, the rain with the sunshine and as I have mentioned before your children will not hold anything you do against you… from what you write about them and the love you show, I do not think you beat them or treat them cruelly..if you are guilty of yelling – you are an ordinary mum like the rest of us 🙂

      NO….I do not beat them (yet – just kidding). Yes, I am a bit harsh on myself. I should give me some credit, right? I have you though to get me back on track 😉 Thank you my dear Jen!

        Yes by all means give yourself credit – us mums sadly do not get a lot. It’s our job – our role – what are we complaining about – we wanted them – pffft they don’t realise how hard it can be…but also how rewarding. If you’re needing to find the right track I hope that I can be of help – thank you hun 🙂 xx
