The video of a Spanish woman living in the United States has made the citizens of that country think about raising children in the United States. Ana Gildersleeve, the creator of TikTok in question, shared on the well-known video platform her opinion on the differences between the growth of children in Spain and in the United States. And, at the moment, her reflection comfortably exceeds 300 thousand likes, a figure to which we must add the more than 3 million reproductions and, in turn, all the comments praising Gildersleeve’s thoughts.
As can be seen in her video, the influencer notes that she believed she was “depressed” as a result of the lifestyle habits she had adopted in raising her children in the United States. However, after some time of reflection, she realized that the problem was that she had realized that she was in “the wrong country”. Thus, after this statement, she emphasizes that motherhood in both countries is different because, while the United States is “boring and isolating”, Spain has a more open culture that encourages parents and children to socialize with other families in the park or in places prepared for the little ones.
Thus, Gildersleeve talks about how normal it is in Spain to have a drink in a bar or a cafeteria next to the park while the children are playing, an aspect that is “unthinkable” in the United States. In addition, she also affirms that, according to the vision of the North American country, it is usual to finish the day when the children are sleeping, a situation that is not experienced in Spain, since it is normal to see the little ones sleeping in the stroller while the parents walk around. In fact, the influencer said that working in the U.S. is so exhausting that, after finishing the day, she doesn’t feel like anything else.
In the comments on the TikTok video, many people praised the Spanish view of life and went so far as to declare that they are in the wrong country. In fact, they pointed out that in Spain they enjoy life and the little moments, an aspect that Americans do not share as they stress over bills, work and other types of situations.
