I feel that some women should not be mothers. I feel that if a woman were to start a family, give birth to children, she should understand that putting the kids as top priority is NOT AN OPTION. I feel that although she is entitled to look and feel good, the kids are not decorative items. I feel that if you can give birth to a child, you CAN….I repeat, CAN take care of the child on your own. I feel that even if you work outside of the home, you should look at the kids’ homework, ask them what they ate for lunch and what they want to eat for dinner and if they made new friends in school. Even if the kid is below par, a mother’s job is to be concerned, address the issue, speak to the teachers and carefully help the child around his or her problem as best as you can. I feel that as a mother, you have NO OTHER CHOICE but be concerned about their health, diet, mentality and happiness (not limited thereto). I feel that if you don’t care whether your child comes home from school safe and sound, then you should not be a mother. I feel that if you don’t bring your kids back home from the nannies with you to spend some time together with them because it’s BOTHERSOME during the weekdays, then don’t have children. Many other mothers are willing to do that and yet, they cannot. APPRECIATE the fact that you have kids. I feel that moms should ENJOY their kids while they are young. I feel that moms can say ‘sorry’ too when they do something wrong. If kids are required to say ‘sorry’ when they make a mistake, mothers should do the same. I feel that mothers can throw a tantrum too….she’s human. But never go to sleep angry at your kids. I feel that there are fewer good mothers out there compared to during my time as a kid. Career is important (I should know this) but so are the kids. Accept it, deal with it and be responsible about it. If feel that some single mothers are irresponsible about their kids….leaving their kids to their maids. Maids ARE NOT MOTHERS. It is not a replacement just because you can afford a live-in maid. I feel that grandmothers are not mothers as well. They are GRANDmothers and it is not a replacement. Most of all, mothers, I feel, is a friend to their kids. Connect with them, play with them, understand them, be sad with them, laugh with them, roll around in the bed with them, get angry at them, punish them, take them to the park, get to know their friends….and you have the passport to take these memories to the grave with you. Otherwise, thank you for delivering a human being to join the human race. Your job is done, so, be gone!
