A Mother’s Love Goes Far Beyond ONE Day
Although Valentine’s Day is our day to celebrate those we love, a mother’s love goes beyond just one day in the year. One of her greatest loves on Earth is her love for her children.
There are MANY reasons that a mother’s role is the center and most important to a child as they grow up. As a foster mom, I have seen first hand how a mother’s love effects a child! When my daughter was first brought into our care over two years ago, at 18 months old, she was pretty much lifeless. Unable to show love, had enormous fears, and was unable to communicate; yet, as a mother, I knew all she needed was love and security!
Through my journey, I have been able to spot 5 reasons a mother’s love is so vital in the lives of her children.
Here Are My Top 5 Reasons Of Importance Of Mother’s Love
1. Psychological Factors
Although some mental health concerns are hereditary, there are a lot of issues that arise due to the trauma and lack of love one receives at an early age. Having a mother to be a constant place of comfort, encouragement and a listening ear helps create a calm within a child resulting in a solid foundation to build upon as they grow. A hug every day goes a LONG way to a child’s mental health! It is even proven in fighting depression!
2. Physical Expression of the Body With And Without Love
Have you noticed some children just tend to carry themselves differently than others? A true mother’s love gives a child the self-confidence to rise above their peers. When our daughter first came into our home, she kept her head down. After 2 years of love, she now smiles, laughs and holds her head much higher with the confidence that she can do anything she puts her mind to!
3. Creative juices a mother gives a child for any conceivable or inconceivable dream
Seeing a lifeless child become so full of imagination has been so amazing to watch. Giving your child unconditional love will give them the security to feel they CAN dream big!
4. Creating A Higher Self-Esteem
Naturally as a mother, watching your child accomplish big or small tasks allows sincere praise to flow fluently out of your mouth. Between constant encouragement and even expecting responsibility, your child’s self-esteem grows far greater than you could expect.
5. Ease of Social Integration And Building Connections In Life
Your child will be watching even when you least expect it. They will see how you respond to others. In doing so, your child will begin to learn how to socially interact with others. He/she will learn how to treat their spouse, their friends, co-workers and even their parents! Make sure YOUR relationships are how you would like for your child’s future relationships to be. They ARE watching and learning from every comment and every action!
