Giving birth to a child is one thing and being able to raise the child is another even more wanting task.
Parenting is a full time responsibility that should be given a lot of attention it deserves. Bringing up small children may be okay for parents who are able to dedicate their time to their children with no other responsibilities elsewhere.
But this may not be the case with career mothers who have other work related commitments and may still not be able to abandon their jobs for the sake of their children’s care.
So for such mothers, they will definitely need the services of a house-help to take care of their child in their absence. But then as a mother it’s good to know what is a good environment for your child’s growth.
Don’t keep changing house-helps for your small baby under the age of five years. Also remember this age bracket forms the basis of your child’s growth.
This is because the child needs time to get used to a new entrant in his/her life so getting only one house-help throughout that age bracket the better. This is a good nurturing environment to your child that will give no room for any confusing element to your child about what is happening in his/her life.
Another thing, don’t leave the entire responsibility of your child to your house-help. Try as much as possible to be there with your child whenever you have your free time.
This is because one is able to know if your child’s growth is headed towards the right direction since it’s determined by some sort of stage.
This will help you as a mother to be able to respond to your child’s sounds and interests. You will also be able to know at what point your child needs play things to handle, bang, and drop.
So as a mother you should always identify any deviation of your child’s growth towards the negative way.
This applies to fathers too..
