On becoming a better person.

January 11, 2011

Parents are humans. Parents make mistakes.  When you have kids, you raise them to the best of your abilities. We as parents have to teach our kids everything while knowing nothing.

I had an arranged marriage about 7 years ago (on 02/08/04) to someone overseas.  To date my parents are seeing how I interact with my husband.  What I had to do to get him here, to teach him the English language, to teach him how to drive.  All very hard work.  With my sisters my parents are being more cautious, careful and taking their time.


Surprised? Heck yeah.

I would think that my parents would go the same route as me but with kids you have to realize that no two siblings are alike.  Everyone has different personalities and what they need in life.

So now the question is how does one become a better parent?

    Wow! I was impressed by the effort you made for your hubby to adjust here. Arranged marriages require so much more patience and compassion during those early get to know you days… and beyond. 🙂
