I wanted to share yesterday about the time when I posted on FB about how parents who want to give the best to their children should attend marriage encounters, parenting seminars and maybe even nutrition counseling and regular therapy. That, instead of breaking backs to purchase expensive gadgets or doing thorough research on which school to send a child to or what enrichment classes in the summer are great. There were several negative reactions to that post, mostly about it being extreme and regular dates should do it.
Regular dates with the hubby ARE important... but regular check ups are equally important. It's like the relationship's well-baby checkup. If we send our kids to different enrichment classes, why not attend one ourselves on how better to communicate with the members of the family, which food to prepare, how to affair-proof our marriage and the like? After all, nobody took up parenting and being a spouse in school, we usually learn as we go... and there is always room for improvement somewhere, even in the happiest of homes.
We take Lamaze classes for a one-time event in our parenting life... why not take classes on how to care and empower that precious child we gave birth to? :)
