A new perspective for Mums.

A new perspective for Mums.

Screen Shot 2013-11-07 at 12.51.17 PMThis video has been doing the rounds on social media this week. It depicts a group of Mums sharing their feelings about being a parent. Most of them share various insights and mixed feelings of guilt and frustration. They are worried that they are not doing a good job. They feel as though they are not patient enough, spend too much time doing ‘other things’, and just give a really honest insight into the roller coaster ride that is motherhood.  They generally beat up on themselves, as most Mums too, and question whether or not they are doing a good job for their kids.

Cue their children. The creators of video simultaneously interview each of their kids and ask them how they feel about their Mothers. The Mums are then invited to spend a moment listening to the words of their children. Beautiful, loving words that make each of them smile and cry.

Do yourselves a favour. If you are a Mum and like me, question from time to time, whether you are doing the right thing by your kids, then this video may help give you a little reminder. We are all doing our best. We are all giving our most. Day in day out. And whether or not, your kids tell you that they love and appreciate everything you do for them, chances are…they will all feel like this….
