Parenting is a whirlpool and turbulence of emotional roller coaster.
Raising a happy, healthy child is one of the most challenging jobs a parent can have — and also one of the most rewarding. Yet many of us don’t approach parenting with the same focus we would use for a job. We may act on our gut reactions or just use the same parenting techniques our own parents used, whether or not these were effective parenting skills.

One wrong lapse leads to complete destruction. Balancing every aspect is pretty difficult; just like a pyramid of cards. The reaction is obvious on the knowledge of an error. But to control on the spur of the moment is wise.
There are infinite stages and situations of parenthood. No one can be a cool cucumber always but should be thoughtful. Thoughtful for oneself and for one who approached.
A newborn holds the finger to convey a message; an infant needs affection. A teenage hunts company for sharing. Fortunately, few get good. Children of any age try to express and convey but the reaction blocks and hinder the path. Thus, forms a rift instead of a bridge.
I on a personal note made the same mistake. But realised after a few moments, I was doing a sin. My own nurtured baby approaches me to solve a perplexing situation and what did I return!

A child has millions of conflict to express and share something with else. There is always an opportunity disguised in the time frame. Sensible grabs and fixes.
My daughter had an assignment which crossed the deadline of submission, and she could not complete the assignment. As a punishment teacher sent her a warning note to get it signed by parents. Out of apprehensions, she did not mention to anyone and signed herself, copying my initials. I was shivering in every inch of my vertebrae. But realised, this approach and confession can be the last if not helped.
I hugged my crying baby. Replying “no worries!” Assured her that your mother is a “Wonder Woman “who can fix any error. Though I was very baffled, for finding the way.
The problem was sorted out, apologising to the teacher. With a note of assurance that this would not be repeated. Two years have passed, experience teaches. The incident made a strong bond rather than a rift!
Love and patience are the keys to every lock!
