THE WORD ON GOOD AND BAD GOD PARENTS. Lock Rss

I WOULD REALLY LIKE TO KNOW IF I'M THE ONLY MOTHER WHO THINK'S SHE MADE A BAD WHEN IT COMES TO GOD PARENTS. I HAVE 5 KIDS AND A BUB DUE IN FEB AND OUT OF 5 KIDS I GOT ONLY 3 GOOD GOD PARENTS NOW WHEN U DO THE MATH THAT IS 2 GOD PARENTS PER CHILD SO 10 ALL UP. MY 2ND SON HAS HIS AUNT AND UC AS HIS WELL THAT WAS UNTILL MY BROTHER IN LAW PAST AWAY 2 MTHS AGO. AND TO MY BABY THAT IS THE LADY NEXT DOOR SO SHE IS THERE ALL THE TIME. BUT WHEN IT COMES TO THE REST I'M NOT HAPPY THEY DON'T PHONE ON BITHDAYS OR XMAS AND THE REST OF THE TIME THEY CAN'T EVEN REMEBER THERE NAME'S. AND 5 OF THE GOD PARENTS DON'T EVEN KNOW WHAT THE KIDS LOOK LIKE IT WOULD B A BIT HARD SINCE THEY HAVE NOT SEEN THEM SINCE THEY WERE BABYS. IT REALLY MAKES ME SAD AS A PARENT COS I WOULD LOVE TO TAKE ON THAT ROLE ONE DAY. U NO I ASKED MY BEST MATE 2 B MY BUBS GOD PARENT AND SHE SAID WHY NOT AS SHE IS ALREDY A GOD PARENT TO MY 4TH CHILD A DAY B 4 HAND SHE RANG ME AND SAID SHE COULD NOT DO THIS COS HER BOY FRIEND SAID NO COS IF I OR MY HUBBY DIED HE DIDN'T WANT MY KID'S NICE HAY'. SO REALLY WHAT IS THE STORY ON GOD PARENTS. PETA

Hi I am a godmother to two children, one i dont see very often at all ,and i hate her mother with a passion, but i was there for her when she was young and i was only a teenager myself when asked,with my godson of two yrs i see a couple of times a week , but these days we all have different ideas of what being a godparent is all about , My DH and i believe that we are the ones that should be responsible for the child if anything happens to his parents , but the mother of my godson sees it differently and would have her family have him,My DH did not want me to be godmother as the child is catholic and we are not,and believes that his mother is taking advantage of the church by miss informing them of her lack of religous beliefs,and still asking for gods blessing so to speak and taking an oath which she is not full filling,
As for my three children none have had naming days or christenings ,Plus if we were to follow the true meaning i would have to have two godparent who were together as i would want all three of my children to be together if anything ever happened to us. A will is cheaper and alot less complicated.the funny thing is ,If i had to pick anyone to care for my children it would be my oldest sons best mates parents , we dont even really socialise together,but we share the same values..

I have 3 children and only the oldest two are currently baptised -- they have different god parents --
My eldest has the best God parents.... Really close family friends, they see her as much as they can (they live down the coast/us in metro) they send her things in the mail to make her feel special they are awsome..... but the god parents are great to all my kids (they just do that extra little something on the side for my daughter)

My middle child -- she has my 'sister in'law and her partner' as her god parents -- this was more a choice of my partner..... it was a big mistake -- this is her AUNTY and she did not call her on her birthday until i SMS to remind her and when it was the Actual baptismal - she was 40MINUTES LATE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! the one thing that the god parents got to do at the baptism they did not do as they were not there........... SO HOW BAD IS THAT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Im the god parent of her youngest - to me I cherish her --- i dont see her as much as id like but i make sure i call to see how she is by her little things to make her special -- she is even included in my will........

TO ME the god parents of my children are not going to have my children if god forbid something happen to me and my partner --- THEY ARE CHOSEN TO GUIDE AND HELP YOUR CHILD IN TIME OF NEED --- this does not equal only when someone dies it equals ALL THE TIME - (THOURHGOUT ALL THE CHILD/ADULT LIFE CYCLES)

When i pass my Sister will be getting all my children (Her and her husband will be the godparents to my 3rd) and the reason for us leaving them with her is cause 'She reminds me of me - and i want my children to have that -- a memory of me' (if you have never seen the movie Raising helen you must see it)

Hope that helps --- YES THERE IS BAD ONES BUT THE GOOD ONES ARE USUALLY GREAT TO ALL YOUR CHILDREN....
