I LOVE this piece from Pundit Kitchen. And I hope it will strengthen the wills of the already most powerful force in the world: mothers.
While I understand that there are battles my children have to deal with themselves, I have not and will not sit back from my kids being hurt or maligned in any way. You got an adult-sized problem with my kid? You have to get through me first.
And it ain't just my kids. I've been known to gently(ish) discipline my kids' schoolmates if they need it. And a few times I've even awkwardly intervened when a parent was losing their cool with a kid to the point of danger. I hope someone would do the same for me...as much as I love my girls, nobody can push my nuclear button like they can.
In summary, world...take notice. I'm watching. I'm watching how you treat my kids, my friends' kids, my kids' friends, and all those other kids. That team of doctors will be present you with a mighty hefty bill.
