Children's Minds, Adult Perspectives

I’m all about understanding different perspectives.

About seeing things from another’s point of view.

Of “walking a mile in their shoes” … because, you know, then you’re a mile away and you have their shoes. It’s not likely they’ll be after you in bare feet.

But you never know.

Really, I do believe that having at least some level of understanding as to what’s going in on someone else’s head. What they value and what they believe in, as well as what they have experienced, or what they may be experiencing in any given moment.

For me, it takes away a lot of hurt, a lot of frustration, and a lot of feeling crap about yourself.

  1. I began to read this same article too after the same “don’t do it” thoughts. I got about 1/4 of the way through and closed it. I was angry that someone thought it was ok to compare the two scenarios and add yet another layer of “mother guilt” to me. I also found it extremely confronting and I was unwilling to continue to be uncomfortable while reading it.

    For me it’s about supporting each other. The comment I make to every friend who is about to have a baby (if they ask me for my opinion) is to do what feels right for you, regardless of what anyone else says – as long as it doesn’t put yourself or your child at risk. I always offer a shoulder to lean on, an ear to listen whenever they may need it and advice if they want to ask for it.
