My literacy in motherhood
I am a mother of two beautiful children and I am also attending college as a full time student. Those are two big important roles in my life because I will constantly be learning new things as I continue in motherhood and in my education. Learning these new skills helped me understand motherhood because I became a lot more patient with myself and in order for me to patient with my children, I must be calm and take the time to really think about what I will do next. I became very responsible because I wasn’t just responsible for myself anymore I had a tiny human to care for so I started looking at things differently and did things in a more dutiful way. My communication skills developed rapidly because I have to give some better explanations to my daughter that way I can be more clear and in depth for her to understand in what I am saying.
My daily routine consists of:
How do I have literacy in my daily routine?
- I show time management by having a schedule, being on time, and having good timing so that way I won't be running late.
- Responsibility is a big skill that I learned by taking care of my children and having their things ready ahead of time.
- Patience and communication goes with me being able to multitask with both children while keeping my cool because it can get a little frustrating, especially if my babies aren’t in the best mood.
For the most part I explained what it means for me to be literate and to help you understand the meaning in motherhood.
how my literacy relevant to my academic situation.
Mothers learn very valuable skills that are used throughout our entire life and are very strong traits to have. My literacy, knowledge, and community are useful and relevant in my academic situations because of all the skills I have from being a mother. Those skills helped me with my academic situation because it actually has improved my qualities as a student. My skills are being responsible, patience, having time management, communication skills, and organization are all things I learned as being a mother.
Why my skills are relevant?
- I must be responsible by being on time and doing my work that way it gets turned in on time, which also shows time management skills.
- I learned that having organization skills are very important. My professors want me to be on top of my work by being organized, so I can find my assignments faster and by being neat that way they can understand my papers I turn in.
- Communication is an important skill that I learned because I must be able to ask my teacher something about my assignment or be able to talk about the assignment with my peers in class.
- My routine also helps me with my education because I also made a routine for my classes as well. Which helps me a lot because I am more organized with all my work and with my study time.
Meeting other mothers at CBC was useful in my academic situation because when I talked to them they would provide helpful information for me. When I was having a hard time studying around my kids they mentioned to go to the tutor center or library. The tutor center was a very big help for me because it was very quiet for me to do my work and when I needed help there was always someone there to ask. They also mentioned that I should go talk to a counselor about my daycare situation. CBC helped me get into a program where my kids now can go to a daycare while I am in school that way I never have to miss. The mothers I met at CBC were such a great help and if I ever needed advice I could always ask them.
