Day 23 (November 2) – This is my rant for today. I have been reading about kids that appear sad and depressed about their life circumstances and then go to the edge. My inner thoughts are ‘NO, you can’t. You have family that loves you’.
Then I have heard the question asked, ‘Have you talked to your parents?’ And the answer is usually ‘No’. That is when I have to scratch my head and wonder why.
Coming from a relationship with my daughter which she told me 90% of what was going on in her life. The lost 10% were thinks she knew I would disagree with. I was unconditional. I didn’t overreact or underreact in front of her.
The ability to do this came from many hours of counselling and it worked. My daughter and I were the closest we had ever been during the final year of her short life. My words of wisdom to kids and parents would be to ‘forge and work at a relationship where understanding is present’. We all make mistakes (young and old) and we all learn from them. It is through communication and discussion that are the building blocks towards a comfortable and trusting relationship. Lots of times, it happens between kids are in their 20’s before they understand their parents.
Let’s work at bringing this age down. To all those out their in cyberworld helping to make the world a better place right now by eradicating bullying.
Sleep well my angels… xoxo
