Difficult decision right? Ancient tradition of the Catholic Church, the “delivery” of a son to godparents chosen for the performance of baptism has been going on since ancient times. However, the dilemma of how to choose baptism sponsors is and will always be very difficult and of great responsibility. Perhaps the most difficult decision you will ever make regarding your child.
Usually the decision is made by mutual agreement of the couple , where the closest family members, friends and people with greater affinity are pointed out and who believe that the good relationship and coexistence will remain forever, in addition to the clear aiming at the attention and care that will be given to kid.
What is a Godfather?
Being a godfather to a child should not be just a status, but a responsibility to care, love, be present and be like “second parents”. Regardless of religious issues, the choice of sponsors is a very serious choice and should be taken seriously by parents and sponsors when they say they accept to sponsor that child.
It is not simply participating in the baptism ritual, wetting the child’s head, receiving a baptism certificate, taking pictures and bye bye. The responsibility of godparents goes far beyond that, it is to sequence the child’s life until adulthood, instruct, advise and set good examples just like their parents.
Unfortunately, the choice is not always right and since the future belongs only to God, many parents may eventually regret their wrong choices. That is why it is good to stop to think, reflect on all situations and see if this connection is really solid enough to give a responsibility to that person and if this “affinity” will not end in time.
A good example is choosing a couple, where the man is a friend of the couple and the woman has become a friend as a result of this relationship. What if this dating ends ??
Will the woman remain firm with her godmother responsibility? Or will the affinity and relationship end with your relationship with the best man? That is why putting all issues in the balance, including the situation imagining the future, is always the best way!
What is Being Godmother?
To be a godmother is to be entrusted with a position of responsibility where your role is as important as that of your parents. It means being present, participating in the child’s daily life, as well as special and remarkable dates for the godchild’s growth. And when that doesn’t happen and the godmother is absent, frustration is certain! !
Inevitably the regret of the choice beats and then, how to talk to the person and report their dissatisfaction? Love is a feeling that must be given without charge, without demands and given spontaneously. The good godmother knows the tastes of her godson, what she likes to eat, to play with and what she finds fun.
Godson and Godmother Relationship
To get to know your godson better, nothing better than creating private moments to be and experience situations with the little one, whether it be a simple lunch or a walk in the park. Moments that are simple in the eyes of anyone, but can make a big difference in the relationship in addition to recording unforgettable moments in the child’s memory.
Being established a way of educating the child and the godmother not only respecting but maintaining the method used makes all the difference in everyone’s relationship. Being a godmother does not mean that you should pamper and make all the tastes of the child, of course that please with special gifts and fun outings is always eagerly awaited by the little ones, but one should not spoil the child and do everything contrary to what the parents recommend in House.

My name is Dr. Alexis Hart I am 38 years old, I am the mother of 3 beautiful children! Different ages, different phases 16 years, 12 years and 7 years. In love with motherhood since always, I found it difficult to make my dreams come true, and also some more after I was already a mother.
Since I imagined myself as a mother, in my thoughts everything seemed to be much easier and simpler than it really was, I expected to get pregnant as soon as I wished, but it wasn’t that simple. The first pregnancy was smooth, but my daughter’s birth was very troubled. Joana was born in 2002 with a weight of 2930kg and 45cm, from a very peaceful cesarean delivery but she had already been born with congenital pneumonia due to a broken bag not treated with antibiotics even before delivery.
