Richa is a super patient mom Find out how

We’ve all heard the saying, ‘Patience bears sweet fruits’. But I only understood the real meaning of patience when I became a mommy myself. Before that I was impatient, but my whole life changed and the only way I could handle the changes was by being patient. Here’s why I think being patient is crucial, especially if you’re a new mommy.

1. Whatever has to happen will happen: Ok, so there are certain situations you have no control over. Your toddler spilled her milk—there’s nothing you can do about the spilt milk, but you can definitely control your actions and reactions. Losing control and shouting at your toddler will neither help them nor is it good for your health. So let go and try to make a joke of it.

2. Keep calm and enjoy motherhood: I get angry at my daughter, irritated even. But once the storm dies, I feel guilty and regretful; but the damage has been done by then. Remember, your toddler also has feelings and may get miffed at you.

3. Faith keeps you going: There’s no better solution to any problem then being patient. When you’re patient and calm, you can think and plan better. Like I said earlier, don’t fret about things that are out of your control. If there’s a problem at office or at home, don’t make your child the scapegoat. Have patience and faith and things will work out sooner rather than later.

4. Patience lets you enjoy your baby: Time will not remain the same forever; your baby will soon grow up. So just let go of your impatience at a messy kitchen table, or dirty linen and enjoy your baby. Besides, it’s better to have a messy home rather than a messy child growing into a messy adult isn’t it?

Do you agree that being patient is important? If yes/no please do share your ideas, views and feedback in the comments section below.

i agree wid u but sometimes i feel that if i will take things lightly with him, like u said the spilled milk( which he has intendedly done) ,he will become like dis only and will not learn good manners ( as not to throw things especially food around) so in order to teach him i become strict n scold him for it but still no good as he do more n more of such things.

we have 2 toddlers at our home , one is my son and other is his cousin they both create a mess at home daily and we enjoy because this childhood will not come again, so enjoy and live your childhood again in a different way with your child.

yes.. i agree. most of the time it happens that my son just kp banging the utensils kept on the stand. when i shout n make him get out from there out of frustration, he come back. he just enjoys that. then i think, wats the use of getting angry on him. i only wasted my energy. this is the time he will follow me wherever i roam in the house. once he grows up. , he will hardly come to me or hug me with love coz he will b busy studying or playing his fav game.

Yes... patience with kids is very important... my 1 yr baby remove all bangles and oil bottles and all my things from dressing table and throw it... but he feels fun in that... if he found water he spread on full floor and play in that... but i keep calm myself and sumtime enjoy playing with him... once they grown up we will only miss all these thing so enjoy with patience... !!

so true.... I know kids keep testing patience but still be calm ....my child loves to play with kitchen utensils n cutlery... so what I do I allow him to do whatever he likes doing.. once he goes to the bed I clean it n it hardly takes half an hour to do so....
