While some people say that it is a curse that is swallowing our generation today but here it is where I personally choose to differ.There are days when I don’t feel myself when I just want to sit alone or I just want to have a cup of coffee by myself.That is when I feel that the phone is the best invention for mothers. No doubt that too much of everything is bad but again anything done in moderation is never harmful.
At times when I get a call from an old friend and I want to catch up on all the gossip I have missed or I just want to take a beauty nap or I want to watch my favorite series that I have missed.That’s when this thing keeps my baby at bay. keeps her engaged, keeps her busy. Is it a bad influence?I don’t think so. Yes, I have been judged and judged a lot but I care less.
Back in our times when there was no phone we still we had a television which too was new to us. How excited we always used to be to watch our specific series.Though we didn’t have the power to watch it whenever we wanted to, but kids today have it.This too is a part of the change I feel. Our kids are the next generation kids and yes certain changes are clearly noticeable in them.
So why is it that mothers who look for respite in technology are shamed? I have personally come across people who on one hand push other mothers as well to keep their kids away from the phone and on the other hand, they smuggle their kids there phone considering themselves to be in the non-judgemental zone.There are mothers who keep their kids packed in a pattern like sheep are reared and then there are mothers who let their kids relax and also relax themselves.
No matter on which side you are, the society will anyway judge you. I do what I like and I’m raising my little one to the best of my ability.
Doing this does not make us any less of a mom. All of us are moms, some a little less super, a little less perfect.But definitely just moms at the end of the day.
Well, I’m sure you all could relate to it, do let me know in the comments below if you could.
