Tough Love

This morning, as I brought her to her classroom, she ran back to me and asked if I can go back to the house and get her project in Filipino that she forgot to bring.πŸ™ˆπŸ˜” I told her I can’t.

Honestly, a part of me really wanted to take advantage of the situation to teach her about facing the consequences of her actions, but when she already cried and told me “but Mom, I am the leader of my team and we need to finish it”, I felt like something was pinching my heart πŸ’”

There were a lot of things on my mind earlier – she was just 7 years old and like any 7yo kid, they just want to play; she will disappoint her teammates, she might think that I did not help her when she needed me (I’m teary eyed typing this), and more.

I told Jett about it and we’ve decided that it was a great opportunity to teach her a lesson on responsibility.

when I picked her up and asked about it, she said they were able to do it, she talked to her teammates, some got disappointed but some were very understanding and it’s all good.

I hope and pray my daughter learned her lesson.

When is the right time to teach them responsibility? I don’t know. But I believe we shouldn’t miss opportunities like this. It maybe hard and painful for us parents, but if it will make them a better person, then we should go for it!πŸ˜‰

I took a photo of her but she didn’t allow me to post it. ☺️

I am Anne. A wife, mother, entrepreneur, and healer.

In the past years, I have actively shared bits and pieces of my life to friends and families on social media. In my posts, I have shared: the joys I experienced as a wife and a mother, my adventures in the kitchen, places we go to, people I meet, and positive things that I have discovered, read or learned. I believe that by sharing the many different ways I am blessed through my experiences, I become a blessing to others who learn from those experiences.

At the start of this year (2019), I felt a special mission from my inner self to widen my audience. I thought that I should be a blessing to more than just my families and friends. I was scared at the initial concept, but I was determined to do it, and so I launched this blog - Anne Chronicles.

I hope that by sharing Anne Chronicles, we reap the benefits of growing and learning together.
