Obsessive single parenting syndrome?

19 March 2014, 12:34

OBSESSIVE SINGLE PARENTING SYNDROME IS WHEN:

• When you think that there is no one who can parent your children better than yourself including your own mother.

• When you skeptically and judgmentally look at your child’s friends and overprotectively fear if their bad influence and behaviors will not somehow rub on “your-well-brought-up-kid”.

• When everyone tells you that all you talk about is your kids; their schoolwork, their birthdays, their activities, their sickness and perhaps their weird naughtiness.

• When you quit living your life and instead live your kids’.

• When you overly frustrate over your children ‘s poor school performance and worry if their future will not turn out to be what you wanted it to be.

·     When you impose your ideas, thoughts, beliefs and suggestions on your children against their will or permission.

·     When you decide on who is eligible to go out on a date with your child based on your approval or disapproval thereof.

·     When you fear that your children will hurt themselves by refusing to allow them to engage in high performance or extreme sports

·     When you presume that your child is still too young to attempt their age appropriate actions or decisions.

·     When you adamantly think that only you know what is best for your child.

·     When you expect your children to act or emulate your actions and thus ultimately cloning you in every sense of your being.

Road deaths need attention

I do not understand the logic of Parliament showing such concern for a few lives lost each year in the mines when we lose 18 lives every day of the year on our roads. Read more...
