I put a lot of effort in preparing healthy meals for RJ. I usually spend hours in the supermarket, choosing the ingredients that doesn't have much or any preservative, for the week's menu.
For a person who doesn't like to cook, yup that's me, I am becoming exasperated with his picky eating. One minute I'm jumping with joy because he likes what I cooked, then when I cook it again he says he doesn't like it because it's yuck! It doesn't matter if I cook it again a few days after, the second or third try is always yuck for him.
Should I just give up and give in to what he wants? Bacon, ham, eggs and other processed food every single meal everyday?
I'm going to be very strict again. My being lenient, since June - the start of the school year, has made my son irresponsible. The trial period is over. As much as I don't want to be a very strict mom, I don't have a choice. My being a very understanding mom, seldom gets angry, has turned my son into something that we both don't want him to be.
He has tried my patience more than a dozen times. He doesn't copy his assigned homework and the schedule of quizzes. This has happened a lot of times, I talked to him calmly, explaining what it will do to his class ranking. Maybe because I was sooo understanding, he tried doing that a lot of times. Mama won't get mad anyway!
Today, I just had enough. I will not allow him to be an irresponsible child because I don't want him to be an irresponsible adult. From now on, when he does something wrong, I will make sure he understands the gravity of what he did and I will make sure that he doesn't do it again.
I am participating in a blogger campaign by Bucks2Blog and was compensated. However, the views and opinions are my own.
Hopefully he'll get higher grades next quarter.
My son’s drink special for tonight is this…
… a mug of warm milo chocolate drink with marshmallows.
He’s been asking me to prepare this for a few days already. But we’ve been coming home late for the past few days and there’s no time for him to have this bedtime drink.
But tonight, finally, he was able to enjoy a big mug, he used my mug, of warm chocolate drink. He went to sleep with a smile on his face.
