They invest themselves fully but also are able to keep their priorities in order. As a child I never understood anything that my mother did or said but now that I am an adult I realize that my mother had a valid reason for everything she did. My entire childhood my mother has molded me to become a great leader and all the lessons that my mother has taught me I can spread the knowledge to my children. Successful leaders keep it all in perspective because they are able to separate the important from the urgent, and devote their time
I consider my life unique and not like many ordinary lives today. Since I was very young, it has always been a strong feeling that my future job would be caring for many individuals. I grew up in a wonderful home with two loving parents. Yes, I am an only child, but don’t hold that against me just yet. I had many first cousins, whom I gladly call my sisters and brothers.
She said, “I’m a grandmother, my love for you is just like having another daughter.” I realized that she was my biggest supporter and teaching me how to be independent was something she did from the bottom of her heart. She also felt that since my father wasn’t in my life that I deserved to have all the support from family. My mother is a single mom and my grandmother stepped up to the plate and helped where my mom fell short. I will always have the up-most respect for my grandmother because she went over and beyond for me. I felt as though my grandmother did everything out of love and not because she felt obligated to.
Both she and my step-father say how proud they are of me and the woman, mother, and wife that I have become. Being that my mother was a single parent and worked full time I spent a lot of time in the care of others. Our text highlights the risk to Mother-infant attachment about daycare, especially poor-quality care situations. My mother was always vigilant when it came to my care, I was always enrolled with in-home caregivers which my mother had screened diligently. This early time, birth to two-years, is the sensorimotor stage according to Piaget.
I do not ask him either, but he playes and speaks to me when he's home so I am happy. Either way, I was practically raised by my mother. She held my hand and told me stories about the world. She has the patience of a saint. I regret to say that I was quite a problem child in the past.
I turned out to be a daddy’s girl. My mom and I spent everyday together with my dad so it was like one big family again. My parents remained really good friends. My mom eventually met the love of her life who is now my step dad. My dad and stepdad used to work together.
My grandma is one of the most important people in my life and I’m so happy that I have her. Since birth the one person that was always by my side except for my family was my Grandma. Once my parents needed to go back to work she was there everyday to watch over me. She took me with her every where she went and was proud to show me off and that she had such a wonderful grandson. My Grandma was around for all of my “firsts” that happened as an infant.
She is strict and educated me to become a good person. I can’t say how much love her. I am grateful to her because she gave me birth, brings me love and helped me grow up. But you know she just takes care of me a lot. Every day she tells me the same words.
Make no mistake, however, as the legacy of spirit that she has created in all of us will continue to live on. Family : My Grandmother Mildred truly defined the word family as I have come to learn and live it. Holidays and family gatherings were the celebrations they were because they were surrounded by Grandma’s love. I watched family such as my late uncle Reginald become the amazing family man he was because of traditions instilled by his mother. I have also seen her daughter - my aunt Milinda – raise three beautiful children by the love and traditions passed down from Grandma.
But, now I do, and I use this principle almost every day in my life. Before that accident, mother always told me that the appearance doesn’t matter, but I fully understood it only, when learned it on my own practice. So, I fully agree with Anna Quindlen, that there are things, which person should learn by his / her own. I hope that in future I will be a good parent. However, I will always remember that a really good lesson is the one that can be leaned on personal experience.
