You know you’re a parents when someone messes with your kid, and you just can’t take it.
That is exactly what I felt so many days ago. I sometimes feel a bit uneasy when accompanying my daughter as she plays with her friends. Most of her friends are a year to 3 years older. What makes me feel uneasy is when my daughter gets hurt accidentally by any of her friends. I often ask myself, is it just the-over-sensitive-me or… what?
I still remember some days ago when I watched the kids playing in our house. Some of her friends (our neighbor’s kids) were playing here and there. As I paid attention to my daughter who fell on a boy’s lap because she was pushed by the other friend, being pushed against the boys as well and almost hit the wall if I wasn’t there catching her. I felt so offended! 😡 In my mind was like: “Hey, she’s just fell on you, not sat on you for purpose”. But I chose to be quite and just staring. I know he was just a kid. But I felt more offended when that boy yelled at her, calling her bad and so on. Silly me, I just wanted to cry 😆
I didn’t want to see that boy’s face for some days because of this.
In the other side, I sometimes saw my daughter was holding her toys when suddenly her friend took them away by force. Her friend was older and my daughter was just staring, cluelessly. The contrary might happened when my daughter was the one who wanted the toys. Her friend will just hit or push her. Well, this happens a lot on the playground. But sometimes I think I need to teach her about possession and the ability to stand up for her rights. Am I being too far? Well, I don’t like seeing my daughter being treated that way, honestly. So I’m confused. Hahaha.
When I talked about his to my mom, she just laughed. She said that the feeling is normal to every parents, in here it’s me as a mom. She said she was feeling that way, too. My mom then pointed an example by saying that if ever my hubby did something bad at me, she and Dad would never forgive him and chase him wherever. LOL, watch out, hubby! 😀
