Momi Musings: Momi Berlin is no expert on parenting nor on child discipline. She is guilty of being the too caring mother to her youngest son as to being too strict a mother to her eldest.
Now, Bunso has his walk-out moves and I-will-cry acts just to get his every want. Firstborn, on the other hand, has grown to be more aloof to his mother. He always runs to and trusts his grandmother who gives in to almost all his wishes.
Momi Berlin does not know how she has raised Second son. The boy is growing up to be more like her – too neat and orderly with his things. He is too preoccupied with orderliness. He is a perfectionist and seriously considers quiz bees and examination as important school matters. And just like Momi Berlin, he feels anxious when he perceive things are not right or not in their proper order. He takes rules. He has his routine. He is very different from his two brothers, more so to his father.
How do we discipline our kids then?
