It’s crazy how subconsciously connect I feel to my mum. Sometimes she takes the words right out of my mouth. Last night, I was thinking of what to write on the blog and I popped onto her Facebook account to have a read over one of her furious rants.
She literally encapsulated what I’ve been feeling for a while and right on time a that. I’ll leave you with her words;
Stop teaching your daughter that it’s her job to fix her man! Who will fix her when she is busy fixing another?
Stop telling her that she’s the home builder, tell her she must work hand in hand with her husband to build her home.
Society today is littered with over-burdened wives, mothers, sisters and daughters. They are weary, stressed and drained from having to fix themselves as well as fixing an adult who ought to be fixing himself and fixing things around him.
Mothers look around you, you’ve succeeded in raising strong daughters and weak sons… Sons who grew to become nonchalant men who rather feast while the women work.
Mothers teach your son that it’s his job to provide for his family, totally and exclusively that way he won’t expect his woman to share family responsibilities with him.
Remove such expectations and he will very much appreciate any input she makes.
Teach your son that he’s the sole protector of his home, that will make him not run off to chase pleasure with the idea that “my wife will handle it”.
Teach your son that loving his wife is a daily affair, and he must make her feel loved, in every sense of the word.
Make your son understand that he’s not done anything for his children until he loves their mother fully.
Raise your son by loving his mother purely… When he sees you doing it right, he will do it more right in his marriage.
Teach your son never to depend on a woman, that way he will never look at a woman as his support, he will put in all his best to be there for his family.
