Hello! My name is Molly Corin. I am an 8 year old, and I am going to turn 9 soon- in april, actually. I am delighted to be a guest blogger!!!!!! This is what I would like to say about what 8 year-olds need from their moms…
I think snuggles are the best!!!!! #1 rule of life-get at least 3 snuggles a day. We depend on our moms to do lots of things, but mostly love us. It helps us if we know that you are here for us. No matter what. It helps us build confidence. And we know if anything happens, you will be there.
What we love
I play the violin, and I think music is one of the best things ever! I love music!!!!! Other kids might not like music as much as I do, but they do have that little place inside their heart, and everyone loves something so much, something that is so cool it seems that we were put on earth to do that thing. You guys can help us make that dream come true.
Since we are 8 years old now,it seems old-even to the parents. We want to make more choices, and we want you to trust us. When you say no to something we really want to do, we feel like you will not let us do anything. This is not true though, but we want you to trust us. Kids- one way you can help your parents trust you more is by not telling lies.
We want to know you well. One way that you can spend more time with your child is by planing a weekly date to do something fun, like going out for hot cocoa. That time you will really get to know your child. Try to have a weekly date, or every other week. My mommy and me do mommy daughter dates.
Thank you for reading my blog post!!!!!
