How To Be A Good Mother
Parenthood and the challenges of being a parent are very rampant today. A lot of people today cannot manage their homes well. The responsibility of making a child grow to become a responsible citizen of the land is the work of both parents. The father has an important part to play whereas the mother has her area of contribution raising children and managing the affairs of a successful family. Who then is a good mother? Families are organized and managed in different ways but there can be some standard processes and procedures that are common to everyone. Today, we cannot really pick some particular form of conduct for mothers but there is a way in which they can perform same responsibilities though in different approaches to make their contribution count in the society.
Maybe we can start asking ourselves a question that seems too obvious to ask. Why our primary languages are known as “mother tongues”. Well, maybe it is because of the responsibility that has been vested on mothers to give children the initial instructions when they come to this world. A child in her initial and tender life stages lives the way and speaks the language of the mother. Most important to note is that, every other member of the family will take up that strategy. Therefore, a good mother should be able to teach her children how to live their lives to the fullest. The mother should set the right foundations right from the start and support the father’s correction on their little one.
A good mother should always be there for the children when in need of her. Children should learn the significance of self-value from their mothers – a good mother should be committed to have such instilled in the life of the children. Well, it is not primarily the role and duty of the mother but she should not neglect and assume that the father will take over. It sinks so well, if children see that both their mother and father are stressing the same things in their lives. From different backgrounds, women are very crucial in the building of families and their actions can either build or break a home. Therefore, a good mother will still show love, provide shelter and food when required to and set a very good example to the children. Children should enjoy fun moments from the mother, be patient with the children as they make mistakes and teach them loving freely without conditions.
