Parenting is hard work. As a parent or guardian, you’re always concerned whether your child is getting along well in school, hitting the right milestones on time and progressing with their age group. Sometimes, that window could be years. So, you let it go and determine that your child is just on the later end of the spectrum.
That window closes and your child still hasn’t met the milestone. You wonder if you should take them to the doctor. Then you find out that it could be hereditary. You sigh a breath of relief because at least it’s normal, for now.
Again, you stop thinking about it so much, thinking that they are just a late bloomer. That window closes as well.
So, you have a heart to heart with the child. They talk frankly about it. After you ask some deep and detailed questions, you find out… you’re child is just lazy.
To finish the sentence this Friday:
I know my child would rather I not reveal this but … my son still wets the bed. He’s 10.
Oh well. Such is life.
What would your child prefer you not reveal?
