Raising boys especially only boys, can be a total crazy job for a mum. Their boy brains will startle you make your heart skip a beat or two oftentimes. Underneath I share few points that are commonly not understood about boys but a mom knows.
1. Boys cry:
Boys need to be tough. But they are just human. Little boys do cry and its completely okay to cry over a broken beloved toy or a physical hurt or even an emotional dilemma. It takes a strong person to show his feelings. They need a shoulder and heartfelt sympathy specially from their moms instead of telling them boys don’t cry its better telling them don’t make someone else cry.
2. They are energetic:
Certainly a hell lot more than you. Probably will beat the energy of a Tasmanian devil too. It takes a lot to tire them out. Make them run and take laps around the house and may be they ll sit down for a few minutes. Not more than that. Expect them anywhere other than being on the floor like normal human. They are better off climbing kitchen counters or hanging from the window grill. Monkeying around they take it literally.
3. They can like “girl toys”:
No, little kids don’t know what boy or girl toys or colors are. They might fall in love with a pink wand at the toys store or they may enjoy a toy kitchen set so much it ll keep them busy for various minutes. Its okay totally. Its us grown ups that differentiate that cars are for boys and dolls for girls. So let their little imaginations fly. They ll play ball once they r grown for sure.
4. Bathroom smells like pee:
No matter how regularly you wash the bathroom floor it will smell like pee. That is apparently because no matter how careful the boys stay(chances of which are low) some pee will land on the floor. Tell your boys to wash or wipe the floor everytime they get the floor peed to keep odour at bay as much as possible.
5. Jokes may smell bad too:
But don’t worry not all boys are same. Bathroom and fart jokes can be funny or not will vary from one to the other. Although grouching is considered funny among a vast majority still not all boys enjoy getting their clothes messy.
6. They can be kind:
Sweet and loving and considerate too. You will not see it coming while you are sad but one of your boys is sure to come up and wrap his arms around you and say are you okay. Not just hugs kisses too a lot of them when they are younger. A compassionate boy is the cutest creature of the planet.
7. You have an important responsibility towards the society:
Yes, you are raising a man. And the world needs more good men. Anger and violence is in plenty it takes a great woman to raise gentlemen.
