My biggest fear as a parent is…
If you read my blog, you will know that parenting is a big thing for me. I live for my children, and I do anything in my power to make my children happy and to keep them safe. If you are a parent, you know there are so many fears that come with parenthood. Today, I want to share some of my fears. I have two children, my first-born Janie and my youngest, JJ.
Well, having two children, totally different from each other, my fears for them are very different.
Let’s start with Janie, my 14-year old. My fears as a parent is that she will not find the perfect man/woman to love her. I fear that, due to her sarcastic personality, she will struggle finding a person that can love her for who she is. I also fear that she will hang out with the wrong crowd, keeping her from fulfilling her dreams. Fear that something will happen to her, physical and emotional hurt, those are the things that I fear the most.
With my son JJ, my biggest fear is that someone will dare him to do something that will end up hurting him. I also fear that if he gets away from doing sports, he will be tempted to try drugs and alcohol. I fear that his kind-heart could be broken and that he will struggle to bring himself back up. Like every mother.
Like every mother out there, I want my children to be happy and good and productive citizens. So, it is normal to have fears, the difficult part, is understanding and accepting that those fears are normal, and that God is the only one that has full control of what is going to happen with your loved ones. We, as parents, have to have FAITH in the LORD that everything is going to be OK.by
