Cupid’s Advice:

It is so fun to fantasize about which specific aspects your child will inherit from both you and your partner. Although, you should not let that overtake the beauty of nature. Your child is going to be so beautiful and will inherit great aspects from you and your partner. It may not be exactly what you hoped for, but you will end up finding it to be perfect anyway. It may be hard sometimes, both before your child is born and much later down the line, to keep your expectations from affecting your children. Fortunately, Cupid is here with some tips on how to help:

1. Let go of timelines: Children are supposed to walking by the time they are one and be potty trained by two, right? No, not necessarily. Don’t place such high standards on your child meeting the typical deadlines of when they are going to accomplish these ‘firsts’. Every child is different and runs on different schedules. Don’t worry, they will eventually take their first steps and be potty trained when the time is right for them. Just enjoy the moments you have together because when they are older and out of the house, you’re going to wish you could still be changing their diapers!

2. Let them know they are enough: It is unrealistic to say that you won’t have any specific expectations for your children. Even if you do, let your kid know that they are perfect just the way they are. You can encourage them to be the best they can be, but try not to expect so much that you end up getting let down, or worse, your child feels as if they let you down. Shower your child with love and appreciation.

3. Support: One of the greatest things you can do as a parent is show support for your child’s interests. Maybe you wanted your child to be a star soccer player like you, but they seem to be more interested in swimming. Great for them! Even if it is not what you originally expected, be happy that they are showing interest in something and support them. Remember, your child is not just a younger replica you, they are a different version of you so let their own light shine!
