Not only did I fall in love with Psychology from the very first day I ever knew what it was, I became even more intrigued with it when I found out what Child Psychology was. As a young child I always asked myself “why”… “why do my parents do this”, “why do adults say those things to each other”, “why do I have to wear this hideous uniform to school every day?!” Ok, so I asked a lot of whys, but those questions never left me. Studying Psychology finally answered so many of those questions so naturally it became my obsession. Ok, not in a creepy kind of way! =) I knew I wanted to be prepared for when I had my own children as I knew I wanted to be the best parent I could be.
Now I’m an adult… Well at least I try to be, and I have my own daughters and nothing could’ve ever prepared me for the real world of parenting. I thought I would be prepared for when my first daughter was born, I was wrong. What makes me different is the fact I still remember those questions I had and I try to imagine the girl I was into the girl my daughter is now. I see myself in her so much, all the time, inquisitive, asking me a hundred questions and when I don’t have an answer for something, she encourages me to keep trying by saying “but mom, you know everything!” So naturally then I run and Google it! =)
