Naija Women Tell Us

13 Naija Mothers Tell Us The Most Difficult Thing About Being A Mother

   

Motherhood is powerful! It does not start with birthing a child and does not end after the child is independent. It is a journey that has no end.

We asked some naija women the most difficult things about being a mother and below are their responses.

MOYOSOLA

Going back to work after maternity leave was the hardest for me. I would call the daycare like 10 times before I close for work and every time, they told me my baby was fine.

BUSOLA

Trying to find balance between work, the children, my business, and taking care of myself.

ZAINAB

When your child does something wrong and you have to discipline him or her, the look on their faces when they know they’re wrong and are sorry weakens me. I want to be the cool mom but I don’t want to raise a spoilt child.

LOVETH

Knowing that the world is a creepy place and that one day they will have to make their own decisions and you’re hoping they are the right ones.

NIKE

When you have to leave them to attend to other things. It’s really difficult to do and then the ‘mom guilt’ sets in.

NGOZI

Sickness. When your child is sick and you can’t take away the pain or discomfort. I hate to see my children uncomfortable.

FAVOUR

Letting them become more independent because you don’t know if you’re teaching them enough to make good decisions as an adult.

NIFESIMI

Parenting each child accordingly. Recognizing that each one is different and need to be handled and disciplined differently.

BOSE

Giving all of them the same attention and love without making any of them feel more loved than the other.

OMOTAYO

Watching your kids make mistakes and learn hard lessons that develop their character and strength.

AHUNNA

Being firm. Letting my Yes mean Yes and my No mean No and knowing when to compromise.

SANDRA

Worrying if they are being treated right when I’m not around. Because it hurts to see other people hurt my child.

GLORY

The fear of missing out on their firsts when you you’re out there doing your best to make them comfortable in life.
