My friend always tells me that as my kids grow, I should gradually let them learn how to take care of themselves.  Papa Ed shares the same opinion. As a mom I guess, my kids’ well-beings will be my utmost concern and feeling worried for them no matter how old they are is only natural.





When they are young, a mom is concerned about her kids’ academic performance, safety and health (this echoes my feelings now as a mom of two young boys). As they grow older, a mom worries about their social circle, attitude, career, relationships and health. After they set up their families, a mom continues to show concern for their marriage, grandchildren, career and health (at least this is how my mom and MIL have continued to show care for us).  How then can we be a more confident mom, to set our minds at ease?




Building confidence does not happen overnight. So what does it take to be a confident mom? Learning to expose our kids to doing things on their own….believing in our kids that they can take care of themselves and manage…..knowing that our kids have the abilities to develop more independence and strength….. coaching our kids and allowing them to brave through life difficulties……a confident mom will have to stand by these beliefs. It might not be easy for many of us but moms will have to learn to take it easy and have faith in our kidsJ




A concern that a mom has about her kids, regardless of age, is always the health.  My MIL always asks Papa Ed whether he has enough sleep, taking any health supplements, eating enough or consuming any liquor. My mom always asks me whether I am taking any tonic.  For me, I am always concerned whether my kids are having enough balanced diet, doing enough exercise, or getting enough sleep. Yes, because at a young age, the frequencies that they used to fall sick can be such a major concern! So I have appreciated the fact that building up the natural defenses of my boys is so important. Seeing my boys in the pink of health brings the broadest smile on my face. A good health foundation serves to benefit them for years!
