Perfect quote for those who have chosen to be childless.
Having kids is not for everyone. And to be a Punk is to live by YOUR truth. Not by anyone’s expectations of who you should be. It’s your attitude, not the clothes you wear, or a snarl on your face.
I did chose to have two daughters, and raised them my way. My family has lived in 3 different counties. My youngest was diagnosed as dyslexic at 7 while we lived in Italy. And everyone had an opinion, experts, teachers or whoever on what language she should or should not speak or school she should attend. I followed my own instincts, did my research and worked with her Italian teachers who were amazing. I was a punk mom. Now? My beautiful daughter speaks 3 languages and is about the graduate from university with a Bachelors of Science in Agriculture. I’d love to tell the Neuropsychologist who initially diagnosed her and said best we could hope for was she’d maybe graduate from HS 🙄
I did it my way, and it wasn’t easy. Especially for her.
Never set low expectations, for you, or anyone else.
