My mother’s favorite maxim is to say ‘never argue with a woman who has had children’. I think it is a really great one, and this is the most effective way that I can apply it.
I used to be a pretty good listener, and my mother’s constant advice was to always be polite. It was a life-long lesson and one that I still use to this day. Now that I have a daughter, she’s not saying the same thing. However, she does say that she will still tell me to do whatever I want to do, and I believe her.
I still have this problem with the way i talk it. I don’t. I’ve had to talk to my friends and family about it for a very long time but they never actually talk to me about it. There was never a time when I wouldn’t say anything to them about it. I always just said, “I’m sorry, I don’t have anything to say.
I have to make an exception for my daughter. She just turned 10 and just started talking to me about it. What? I have to say something? Well I just told her that I do not care. She tells me I talk with my mouth full, and then she says that I talk for no reason at all. I am so confused right now. I thought she was just saying that she talks for no reason in public.
People, it is not always so easy to talk to your son. There is a natural language that must be learned, and one that is not always obvious to the uninitiated. There is an interesting difference between how we talk to our sons and how we talk to our daughters. It is important to realize that our daughters are not simply talking to us for no reason, but that they are in fact expressing themselves.
The reason i talk to my boys is because i want to be able to tell them that i am just doing what I do. I am not saying they will not talk to me.
The only time i talk to my kiddos is when they are just talking. I mean, why would i want to talk to them if i am not able to communicate? It is okay for them to be in a room with someone else, but if i am not able to hear them, they are not going to be able to talk to me, they are going to be in a room with me.
I am glad that our generation has the freedom to have our own opinions, and even to speak our minds. I am also glad that we have the freedom to use these opinions to decide if we want to live our lives the way we do. This means that we shouldn’t be so afraid of being misunderstood, or even just spoken to in a way we don’t like.
I had a conversation with my friend about people who do this. He said that I am very loud, and I am not able to follow what I say to others, and this is something I agreed with. He said that this is because I am a very intelligent person. I agree that this is true, but I am also very smart, and I know that being intelligent is not always what it is supposed to be. That I am able to follow is just a good thing.
This is what I think is a good thing. If you are smart, you will be able to follow. If you are a smart person, you can be very intelligent about things you do not like.
