Not a Natural Nurturer
By Andrea Umm Abdullah | Saudi Life
HEN we think of a mother, we have this image of a nurturing, gentle, loving woman. But being nurturing doesn't come naturally to everyone. For some mothers, it’s natural to show affection to their babies, but it becomes uncomfortable as the children get older. Others may come from a culture that doesn't show affection. Maybe the mother didn't have a bonding experience with her new baby, or maybe the mother was emotionally neglected herself, or maybe all of the above. But whatever the reason, it can be worked through insha’Allah.
