Raising a new human being to be good, kind and compassionate is hard work. Kids are prone to test our limits and exactly how far we can bend before snapping… and we all snap sometimes. It’s is usually especially hard for moms, not dads, because they still tend to spend more time with the children.
We are stressed and trying hard to be good moms, keep them clean, feed them well and discipline them the right way. When dads take over (because moms need to get haircuts once in a while, too), it’s usually a vacation for kids: they can eat chips and pizza and watch cartoons for hours. Dads have it easy, they can be fun and relaxed, because it’s the mom that keeps things under control and little fingers our of electricity sockets. Not always, but that’s usually the case.
