Do you raise your children differently?
With my boys two years apart, you wouldn’t think that I would raise them so differently, as I do. I know many friends that raise their son and daughter differently or children far apart in age. For an example, my oldest sister and I are twelve years apart, of course, we were raised differently. But I raise my boys completely different, even being two and half years apart.
When Bradly was born, he had to stay in the NICU for ten days. (story here) I was a very stressed, first-time mama and my mama instincts were just kicking in. Once we got home, I didn’t want to leave his side. Six years later there has only been a handful of times I left him other than with my husband.
I always pushed Bradly to do more than children his own age. One thing Bradly was interested in was anything electronic. We introduced the T.V. to him probably before the age of two. He was listening to the iPod and surfing through Netflix all the time. My first mistake as a mother?
Kyle, my sneaky little one has nothing to do with electronics. We decided not to introduce electronics to Kyle too early. I’ve never really pushed Kyle to do more. Even today, he doesn’t turn the T.V. on (then again he has Bradly to do it for him). Bradly has recently been trying to teach Kyle how to play video games but Kyle has no interest. He loves playing with his toys, which I don’t mind.
What do you think? Was it a mistake introducing electronics to Bradly or is Kyle now behind? I want to hear your stories. If you have your own blog about this topic share it with me. I can go on and on about my children. With tons of stories to share I hope you stay connected with me to find out more about me and my pride. Love ya, Mary xoxo
