Mother’s Day is upon us again, and one thing we all have in common is that we each have a Mother! We did not just appear on this earth…our Mother’s created us, with the help of our fathers, and then Mom brought us into this world. Whether your Mom is still with you or not, this holiday is a reminder to be grateful to your Mother and cherish your time with her.
A good mother can teach her children the most important life lessons. In essence; how to be good adult men or women in a world full of brash, thoughtless people.
What can a Mother teach her son?
Hold the door for others, not just women.
Stand up when a woman leaves or joins the table.
Walk on the “splash” side of the sidewalk when walking with a woman.
Always attempt (gently) to pick up the dinner tab when on a date or even amongst guy friends.
Get the car and pick others up when it’s raining.
Offer your hand to a lady in multiple situations…
Be a great listener and always be there for your friends and family.
What can a Mother teach her daughter?
To embrace their potential at an early age, and combine that with positive reinforcement and education.
To view exercise and a healthy diet as self-love.
Talk about the relationship she will have with her hormones for the rest of her life. It’s not crazy, it’s womanhood!
Empower daughters to look their best. Help them understand how to maximize their best attributes and minimize the rest. Be classy.
Teach daughters how to handle and thrive among women. Help her to listen, to avoid judging and to learn from other females. It will reduce the drama women experience on a daily basis.
Many of the above statements in both categories are good for either men or women.
Why are Mother’s so special? Mother’s are special because they are always there when needed for their children. Mother’s are special because they are willing to let go of their children, even when it hurts and they care enough to say “no” when needed while bringing up their children and guiding them to adulthood. Mother’s are special because they always welcome their children with an open heart and open arms and their love is unconditional, and as many of you reading this already know…a Mom would do anything within her power for their children.
Mother’s make us feel safe when we are growing up, and that bond follows us into adulthood. Once grown up, we should have a deep respect for our Mother’s that remain with us for life. Children remember how their Moms did everything for them, so the reverence for our Mother’s is immense and grows even stronger as everyone ages together.
