    My both kids have different reasons to get annoyed about me. My elder daughter does not like it when I tell her about my past - as an aspirant to do medical I joined engineering thinking that i can earn money. But after marriage I left the job. Now she is in similar stage to take decision, so I keep on telling her to think a lot before joing any course.
    My younger daughter does not like me when I "rant" about maintaining discipline, keeping things clean etc.
    But obviously, I don't stop improving them because I believe they will mark my words in their future!

    The number one habit my kids find annoying about me is that I love calling them, with their pet names,in front of their senior friends.They say,I simply degrade their standards in front of their seniors ,but I am sure they have enough of their laughs ,with their seniors ,discussing the way they got their nicknames.It is a way to irritate them to their core,yet give them confidence to face difficult situations in their real lives!

    @Saju Johnson Agreed :)

    My kids say, it's difficult to find just one annoying habit of me because there are many. Well, I asked them all, so I can make some progressive changes and enthrall. And according to them, one most annoying habit of me is not let them watch TV while having meals. I always tell them to focus on eating and encourage them to eat consciously with gratitude. Though they keep insisting me to change this habit, I still continue to make them learn to have meals with reverence and without any disturbance. And they keep on shouting, “Oh no, not again! ”

    One thing my kid find most irritating is when I make bitter gourd and green veggies. I want to incorporate vegetables in the diet. Vegetables are the most essential part of a balanced diet. Hence I want to add it whenever possible. It has become a bit of my habit now.
    Vegetables provide essential vitamins and minerals which protects us from diseases and flights against harmful effects.
    But every time I add it to the diet, the reaction comes, "Oh no, not again!"

    @Debojani Roy Heehehe...you seem to be a clever mom creatively adding veggies to everything...Do share some tips for all of us too :)

    My kids in one chorus sing Mamma not again,when I get coconut oil to massage on their head scalp.They have a prejudiced version that oiling hair makes them look non modern.So whenever on weekends ,I call them to oil their hair they run and hide from me.

    The more you read,the richer you become.I literally force my kids to read the newspaper and they prefer using that time to watch YouTube videos.When I press them harder to read out ,they half heartedly do so ,just because they can't go against mamma.I tell them,on one occasion you will realize importance of the habit of reading,no matter how far technology has advanced.

    Team ParentCircle 74 days ago

    @Jisha Varghese Yes, reading really makes your mind sharp and is a company for life. Great going mommy! :)
