Never ending questions…

Godogcafe’s Tuesday writing prompt : Pick 3 words with “w” and use it in any form of writing.

Why, where, when, which, what

a mom’s most used glossary

dialogue with kids

It is an inherent quality in mothers, the world over to worry about the welfare of their children. While it good to care about their well-being, too much of questioning irritates them and children feel stifled in such an environment.While parenting styles have undergone a  total shift today, adapting to the changing times, these questions continue to be the favorites in a mother’s vocabulary while talking to her children.

What do you think?

    In my experience, it’s likely for my dad to ask these questions and not mom though 😅

      Yes, I agree, it is care. My only point is her questions should not get overwhelming for the kids.

        I was about to ask you the same question you came out. So being a lady you have understood the point. According to your words, mothers words should not be overwhelming, yes most of brilliant children already been ruined in today’s world. Whether you agree or not you can me as an example.
        Thank you for your response. #KeepRoaring

    You have said it so rightly, Radhika. In today’s times mother’s have surely changed with the times but moms will always be moms. Nice post.

    I think I have very well learned to disguise those questions in trying to find more skillful ways of conversing, you are right though, those are the mom words certainly 🙂

    Charming poem, Radhika! The “W” words are for news stories and should be judiciously used by moms. Easier said than done, right? I have 3 grown children. 🙂

    I’m no parent yet, but I can relate to this line of question … if I think back on my childhood. It seems very useful for more than a journalist approach, as it’s often used in. Always impressed about how much ground you cover in your writing: you have a varied array of topics and you always craft them excellently.

    I accept your words ma’am, generally mothers do this. I feel I am not doing this. I showed this post and asked to my eldest daughter she told I am not asking only her father does😀

    All out of concern for the child – and the overwhelming goodwill to coach the child into one’s own model. Very distrubing for the child though! Parenting is a difficult topic to muster. I love these lines from “The Prophet” by Kahlil Gibran

    “Your children are not your children. They are the sons and daughters of Life’s longing for itself… You may give them your love but not your thoughts, for they have their own thoughts. You may house their bodies but not their souls, for their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow…”

      I have read those lines and it is an absolute truth. Excessive concern, care, protection or questions sometimes backfires with children. Unlike our times, we need to give them their space for growth yet gently keep a tab on them. Very challenging indeed!!
