Moms Are Sharing A Story About “The Dangers” Of Rocking Children To Sleep, And Every Parent Needs To Read It

Raising a child is one of the most demanding jobs a person can take on. Naturally, doubt about child-rearing can creep its way in, making parents question the way they’re handling their struggles. “Am I being too hard on my child?” “Am I being too hard on myself?” “Am I raising Hitler?” From time to time, mothers and fathers need some encouragement, reminding them that everything’s gonna be alright. Recently, for one parent, that support came in the form of a Facebook post.

A mother had received a barrage of criticism on a previous post about her child, with people saying she was giving her child too much love. Fifteen years later she got the satisfaction of proving them wrong, and it was sooo worth it. Scroll down to read the emotional text that has already received nearly 10,000 likes and let us know what you think in the comments. (Cover image: Juanmonino)

In many Asian countries, children sleep with there parents in same bed till they are 12 or in some cases even 15. Sometimes it has to do with less living space or no spare room for child or sometimes its just a cultural thing passed from one generation to another and everybody keeps doing it. Cuddling your child, giving extra love, doesn't makes them weak or less independent, look at how Asian countries grown and developed in recent years. Love is endless, there is no limit to it, if a child or person need a cuddle or hug, it doesn't always show weakness, it could be simply a way of expression. AND A HUG FROM MOM, IS A HUG FROM MOM, no other feeling or thing can ever outshine the love in that HUG.

When I had my heartbroken recently my mom knew it right away, she didn't ask or say anything, she just knocked at my door and hugged me and said "it will pass" ... That hug made me able to compose myself and carried out my other duties and obligations... "A HUG FROM MOM, IS A HUG FROM MOM" is a treasure that I always hold dear to me. My heart was broken when I was 32. (I go home to stay with my parents every weekend, and as an Asian, I never understood the stigma of living with your parents...I mean who else is going to take care of them in old age if not family)

if you never listen to your child when they talk to you about the little things, they'll probably not talk to you about the big things. you can't have too much love, too much time, too many hugs. It's all we've got.

This reminds me a lot of a former friend, who claimed that he could never speak out to his family. They would go as far as to ignoring him even though he is emotionally unstable and a cutter :/

a child should never feel they are too old to ask for a hug or a cuddle if they are in need or distress
