her delivery was more painful to than labor ever was because I could do more than The Miracle of Birth Grandmother Mother Surprising are the feelings one has upon becoming a grandmoth er for the first I was totally amazed that I felt a mother again when my great moment I couldnt believe that becoming a grandmother and becom ing a mother were so much I was one of those crazy Ive been who absolutely thrilled at each grimace of I was so aware of the miracle I was allowed to create that I never experienced severe pain or Becoming a was much more I was with my daughter from the time she had her first contrac I felt the pain each time she When my granddaughter made her appearance and I had my first I was filled with the same emotions I had felt when her mother was Again I had created a miracle for had it not been for she wouldnt have been possible in the first The sensation of childbirth was still so vividly in my mind from own I pictured myself giving my daughter advice her turning a deaf ear as I had done to my own mother and her doing things in her own As a mother I was in command of everything I did for my but as a grandmother I can only Grandmothers have so many more I remem ber getting up in the night and stumbling tpward the diaper ing the and doing all of the mounds of Now grandma simply and loves the infant and iands it to its mother the Discipline in child rearing is a constant thing grandchild manages to totally it during her There are those things grandmothers The warm emotional sensation of putting a child to your breast for its very life is no longer mine It is now passed on and I can only remember how it The closeness need never be lost whether one is a mother or a That is one way in which there is no second article was written during a rare quiet tpomentof reflec tion at a time wtyn my children began expressing questions oh how to cope with raising their The art of discipline As a very young child attending Sunday I once had a teach er who made the We dont discipline our children dont love but because we want others to love This phrase has followed me since that very When I married at I immediately began to think of raising a I managed to achieve this goal by giving Sifth four times in lessthan five Suddenly this1 phrase came Sack to I was and still am a very caring mother but disci plining children was a large responsibility that I hadnt consid I soon found that each child was a very different person and each had its own special The first born was a son and gave me absolutely no problems as a young If he would pick up something sharp and I explained that he shouldnt because he might hurt he would immediately put down the the second a was totally the She would quickly proceed to ampu tate a finger in order to find out that I was sincere with my I had to develop a differ ent It worked better for this child if I told her that no one cared if she cut and she would lay the sharp object The third child was torn between examples of the other This little girl couldnt keep up with either one of the oth ers so she developed her own unique style of temper I tried hug and finally resort ed to threatening after this child me in public two or three Being a firm believer that you should not threaten unless you can carry out the I had to my ground andl follow I informed her between her screams that if she didnt stop immediate I would throw a glass of cold water on She decided to test me and when I pitched the frigid causing her to take a deep she stopped crying and the blue color immediately left her AH the while I am saying to You arent doing this because you dont love her bjiit because It somehow made rite feel a little better as I looked at my soaking The fourth little the poor was simply lead around by the npse because the qther three influenced him so He had managed to pick up all of the other childrens bad I have managed to survive raising them with the youngest npw ready to graduate from nigh Raising is a fantastic it ypu Hike Ive found that you do not always win a test with your children because you often dash YPU have IP pre pare yourself fpr the possibility that they might npt like you frpm
