Maintaining or Raising Your Child/ren?
Power thought food for Single Parents Maintaining your children rather than Raising them. What do you mean Victoria?
Lets look at what the word Maintaining means: adj
To provide for; support: maintain a family. To keep in an existing state; preserve or retain: to keep up or carry on; continue
While this word has different meanings for different situations, I choose this one since we're talking about a family.
Now lets look at the meaning of the word Raising: adj
To bring up; rear: raise children. Increase, promote, Nurturing; cultivation; providing sustenance and protection for a living thing from conception to maturity.
Now that we've examined the implication of these two words. And while they're both good in and of themselves, we can now see a little clearer how we're playing our role as Parents.
Lets see how these interpretations are played out as Parents. When you are Maintaining your children, it looks like you are providing food, clothing, shelter, school supplies & maybe transportation.
When you are Raising your children, it looks like, all of the above along with teaching, educating, spending quantity & quality time together, socializing with each other, asking questions, answering questions, etc.
