Something struck me today whilst watching my son… He is somehow always “removed” from social situations. No, don’t misunderstand that statement. He is a very sociable little boy who according to his teachers is very popular amongst his peers. What I am referring to is that he CHOOSES to remove himself from the “crowd”. Although I have always been aware of his “selectiveness” – today, for (whatever reason) it hit me! My son chooses wisely!
I am all for BIG families – I am a part of one. We are loud, opinionated and loads of fun! There is truly no limit to the amount of fun we can all have together, but whilst my son has many cousins (with a new addition on the way any day now) he - is an only child, and I think I speak for ALL mothers sitting in the “only child” sphere, when I say – we DEFINITELY spoil more to compensate for the lack of siblings…
Nobody wants their child to be an over confident cocky brat, but every parent wants their child to hold a healthy level of confidence. When I was a kid, I had no problems with public speaking and even won 'best speaker of the school' once upon a time, but as I got older and life shared all its trials, tribulations and experiences with me, I lost that confidence somewhere along the line…
