I’m ready to make a sign and just hang them from my kids necks.
My family is giving me a hard time because of how we (my husband and i) have decided to parent our kids.
At first it was really hard to stand up to my family.
The husband and I decided on no sugar or junk food or soda until they discover it some magical way in school.
I got in arguments with my parents and extended family but in the end we won.
My aunt who I adore gave my son chips!!!! and then she gave my 4 month old a taste of a vanilla wafer. Then even tho I saw she tried to tell me she didn’t… she didn’t win.
I was mad to say the least but I voiced my thoughts and told her I was angry and she understood.
My husband was mad but he knew I had taken care of the situation.
My parents sometimes still don’t understand but I know they don’t understand how it is to raise a child with someone of another race.
They want my husband to understand our traditions and values but sometimes they forget he wasn’t raised with the same traditions or values as we were.
I’m glad my husband and I are on the same team. We compromise with eachother and do the best we can to raise our little ones.
