‘Teen Mom 2’: The Lessons Kailyn Lowry Wants Her Kids To Learn Before They Get Older
Teen Mom 2‘s Kailyn Lowry hasn’t had the best of luck when it comes to romantic love. But where she did luck out is the kids department. She has three sweet sons who are her entire world. She’s said on several occassions that her main and favorite purpose in life is being a mother.
In Lowry’s most recent book, A Letter Of Love, she features life lessons that she’s learned through the years. She learned many of these lessons the hard way, and she’d love for her boys to learn them the easy way: by adhering to their mother’s advice.
How to handle rumors
Lowry has written and spoken about how her children are bound to hear/read rumors about her and their family. She’s always been worried about how it’d affect them. In A Letter Of Love, she urges her sons to “see things for [themselves].”
“It is possible that you will hear a lot about me from the perspective of others. I want you to remember that so much is easier said than done. If nothing else, I want to open your hearts to see things for yourselves and to change your perspective on love. I want your hearts to be opened to love always,” she wrote.
Lowry writes that she didn’t “gain perspective until it was too late” on this. But Lowry tells her boys that if they love themselves and love each other, rumors don’t matter.
“If I can teach you anything, it is to love yourself first and foremost. I also urge you to love and trust each other. Doing so will mean that you won’t be forced to look for it in other places. Love should enhance what you already have and know; however, it should not be the only focus of your search,” she wrote.
Don’t trust too quickly and always be honest
Lowry also warns her children against trusting people too easily and too quickly.
“At first, you will never be able to know a person’s true intentions,” she writes.
The mother of three also encourages her sons to be relentlessly honest.
“Be honest even though it may be incredibly hard. Be honest with yourself and be honest with those around you. Be honest with friends and those who are not close to you. I’m not advising you to go out of your way to tell someone what is wrong or that you don’t like a chosen outfit. In the end, those things won’t be important. I am saying that you must learn to be honest about your feelings and your intentions. Doing so will ensure that no one will be able to question you, your morals, or your convictions,” she wrote.
Kailyn Lowry wants her children to be kind
Next: Never seek revenge.
“DO NOT retaliate. Karma is real, and she doesn’t need your help. If someone does mistreat you, I promise you that it has nothing to do with you,” she wrote.
Lastly, Lowry wants her boys to be kind to people.
“All the people you encounter will feel a little piece of you, so even on your bad days, be the best you can to people,” she wrote.
