A mother is a woman who is committed to her children & seeks their best welfare. A real mother sacrifices for her children. She wants far better opportunities for them than she wants for herself & works to make it so. She encourages & nurture her children's unique talents. She rejoices in their accomplishments. If they surpass her, she is not envious, jealous, steals their thunder, nor seeks to sabotage them in any way. She never makes underhanded comments or remarks to them because they have an easier childhood than she had. She would never remark to her children that they have it too easy.
She has children to SERVE them, not the other way around. She has the amount of children that she can give them the best educational, cultural, intellectual, & socioeconomic opportunities. She does not have MORE children than she can afford, putting them into impoverished circumstances where there are scarcity of opportunities. She also do not have the amount of children to make oldest/older children forfeit their formative childhood years assuming adult responsibilities. She is TOO SMART & CARING for that. She makes sure that her children have a good, enriching, & normative childhood/adolescence.
She would never compare one child to another. She appreciates each of her children's talents. She would never play the favoritism game. ALL of her children are HER FAVORITES. She knows how insidious favoritism is to a child's precious self-esteem. She puts her children first, even before her husband as her children are precious & more vulnerable than any man would be. After, he is an adult & can take care of himself, thank you kindly.
She wants her children to be self-sufficient & independent. She would do anything in her power to create independent adults who have power & believe that they can achieve & be anything they sent their minds on. She would never tell her children that a dream is unrealistic or too big. She would never denigrate her children's ambition, telling them to settle & get a REAL job. She would never tell them to be mediocre when they can be extraordinary.
