I was discussing this with a friend the other day and she was saying she would choose her children over her husband any day. I do tend to agree with this, you can replace a husband but you cannot replace your children. The reason for our discussion was that she felt her husband was too harsh with the children and they disagreed over what actions were punishable. Not the most patient of fathers he would either ground them or take away their laptop for arguing with their siblings.
I do agree that this is an over- reaction, siblings argue all the time is that really a reason to punish them? I am a very over protective mother of my children, any punishment is dealt with by me (usually a few empty warnings) I feel that in order to punish my children they would have had to have done something very bad.
Some people say relationships break apart because of children but us mothers will side with them, we carried them inside for nine months they are our babies no matter how old they are. The love between husband and wife will never compare to the love between a mother and her child they are a piece of us and always will be 🙂
