Mommy Wanders Parenting Magic Spell
“Babadi Babado Babadoom!!!
You, monster kid, go out of the room!
Babadi Babado Babadoom!!!
Your crazy behavior I cannot control!
1,2,3.. I will turn you into a well-behaved angel,
listen as I will whisper to you my magic spell!
Babadi Babado Babadoooommmmm!!!”
YAAAYYY!!! Yes, it worked! My magic spell worked!!! In my dreams. Haha
How I wish it was that easy to turn my kids into angels. If only there’s some sort of real parenting magic spell, I’ll definitely buy my own wand. And an extra for my parents. HAH!
Unfortunately, it doesn’t work that way. And I’m glad it didn’t, or else my parents would have used one for me. LOL
Parenting is a real struggle.
No matter how many kids you have, how much income you earn, or where you live, there will always be some challenges that are unique to us, parents. While we face different sorts of issues in different levels, there is one particular concern that is most common for all of us – dealing with our kids’ behavior problems.
As a mom of two preschoolers, aged 2 & 4, everyday is a kind of crazy day. Granting I could use some magic spell even just for a day, I would.
The 10 Preschool Behavior Problems I Wish to Solve With a Magic Spell
1. Aggressive Behavior
For my son, I wish that with a single wave of my magic wand, there will be no more biting, hitting, or throwing.. ever again. Like forever! “Babadi Babado Babadoom BEHAVE!”
2. Behaving Shyly
For my daughter, I wish she’d be more confident being around people, other than the family.. Uhm can you at least respond with a HELLO to your classmates? “Babadi Babado Babadoom SAY HI!”
3. Destroying Property
I know this is not always intentional, but kids, please take care of our things. “Babadi Babado Babadoom PLAY CREATIVELY!”
I hate this. I understand that some lies are just “imaginations confused with reality”, while others are to cover things up. I always pray that you learn to differentiate fantasies from the truth and that you keep to be honest with everything. Not just to me, but with everyone else.“Babadi Babado Babadoom SPEAK THE TRUTH”
It’s crazy how you, little kids, make the biggest mess. Why can’t you be more neat and responsible? “Babadi Babado Babadoom CLEAN UP!”
6. Not Sharing
Yes, I know those toys are ALL YOURS, but will you please share at least one piece of lego? Or learn to take turns? “Babadi Babado Babadoom SHARE!”
7. Not Wanting to Eat
Didn’t you know that everything on our table is edible? Why so picky? For the love of food, please.. “Babadi Babado Babadoom EAT!”
8. Resisting Bedtime
Kids, I’m trying to be consistent with our bedtime routine, but why are you making it so hard? Please cooperate, it’s really so simple: (1)Lie down, (2)Close your eyes. That’s it. “Babadi Babado Babadoom SLEEP!”
9. Sibling Rivalry
Kids, you know that I love you both EQUALLY so much to the moon and back. I don’t want to punish or be upset to one of you for fighting the other. I’m doing my best to give you individual attention. Please play fairly. “Babadi Babado Babadoom GET ALONG!”
This is annoying. Whining isn’t the way to get what you want. Be nice and polite and I’d gladly listen to your wants. “Babadi Babado Babadoom BE PLEASANT!”
Hey kids, is it too much to ask? It’s not so hard, right?
