“Every being needs to be nurtured, so I believe motherhood will never be outdated, a mother’s love is always there, despite cultural differences” reasons Sara, a mom from New York city.

1 – What does ‘being a mom’ mean to you?
To me being a mom is an honor, to raise my children as best as I can so that they can be the best that they can be, filled with joyful memories.
2 – Do you think motherhood is outdated or should be reinvented?
Every being needs to be nurtured, so I believe motherhood will never be outdated, a mother’s love is always there, despite cultural differences.
3 – Does your mom inspire you to have a family of your own some day?
As a mom to two boys, my mom always told me I’d be a great mom one day…and to always show love, compassion, kindness, patience & that verbal abuse may never be forgotten by a child so I must be mindful of my words. Laughter daily is a must!
4 – As a parent, what would you change from the way your mom is dealing/ has dealt with motherhood?
I would probably change the “helicopter” mom factor, as she kept my siblings and I indoors and busy…unless we were at school or on vacation somewhere…we weren’t really allowed to stray outdoors/spend the night at friends’ homes as much as our friends did. I learned that she had major safety concerns & this was done out of love.
5 – What price would you put on your mom’s love?
As humans, of course we get on each other’s nerves, but, the love we share is infinite…
