My baby is due next week and I’m really scared. Oddly enough, it’s not because any of the pain it will cause. It is because my family has a history of not getting along with their oldest children. My mother and I can’t stand each other, she couldn’t stand her mother, my grandmother hated my great-grandfather, and he despised my great-great grandfather. That is five generations of family drama and I don’t want to do anything to make my baby boy and I the sixth one. The biggest fallout between my mother and I came when she would never believe me or take my side in any situation. I already love my baby and I want him to love me. I’m just wondering how do I keep a good relationship with him throughout his life?
-Something’s Gotta Change
***Something’s Gotta Change, you are absolutely right! It sounds like your family is dealing with a generational curse. Five generations is roughly a century and that is far too long for any type of family drama and discord. I am sure, over the years, you have heard the stories as to why your various ascendants have been at war with one another. Take those to heart to learn how to prevent them and not perpetuate them. If your child has all of your strengths, and none of your weaknesses then you will have done a great job raising your son. Trust me, there’s no manual for parenting and “The Lipschitz” is just a Rugrats character. You two will always be good company with another--claim it and believe it!
