Understand the concept
I don’t think a lot of mothers around here understand the concept of being a “good parent”. A lot of people think that because they have their child in their care, it makes them “mother of the year”.
Well let me tell you. Far too many people have their kids that should not. Far too many children are getting raised by these young and immature girls that spend their time beefing other people, getting hammered every other night and sitting around all day on a welfare cheque smoking their money away because “weed is legal” and there’s no possible way it is seen as an issue these days for someone to spend all day smoking it. What a child needs is a present parent (mother and father, which may be hard to come by in this city because most fathers are dead beat). A child doesn’t care what you buy them. They care about the love you give them and the time spent. Being a good parent means cutting out toxic people from your life and changing old behaviours in order to become the best mother and example you can be for that child. Everyone has a past, but when you continue to make poor choices not only does it affect your child, it takes away the privilege of calling yourself a good parent.
A lot of people can throw your past in your face, but once you turn your life around none of that matters because deep down you know you’re a good parent. Only you know the sacrifices and the things you do for your own child. So do better. Get off of your high horse because living in housing doesn’t make you the worlds best parent. Living off of government funds while you diss people on Facebook only shows what level you’re on. Just saying.
