Any parents here..

Postby chanta76 » Mon Jul 28, 2014 6:46 pm

I know most of the posters here are single men that want to go abroad maybe but there are older posters here either living abroad . Wondering if there are any parents here?

If not for the difficulty of C-sections I guess we would have had two or three more.

Hard if youre not around supportive extended family, living in a good safe family neighborhood. But IF you can arrange those things, and your man earns a nice paycheck, then it's still a lot of work, but it's all good.

But anyway as a sexy young mother and loyal wife you are so far ahead of many women today.

That's true I'm far from all my family so I definately end up tied down. The freedom I had before is gone! As a parent you have the choice to care, or not to care as much. If you decide to care enough you'll have to give alot of your time to growing them & educating then on your own terms.

People who say being a parent is 'easy' are either lying, not doing a very good job, or letting the school system & others raise their kids. Alot of parents don't realise most of the child's day is spent away from them at school, so kids learn what they live and that's the outcome.
