9. Accepting

There will be many times, if not already, when you and your child disagree. In such scenarios, I suggest that you be as accepting as you possibly can. In other words, when you two disagree on something, don’t be quick to reprimand him. First of all, sometimes parents need to remember that times change with each generation; so what was considered inappropriate a generation ago, can be appropriate today.

Second, if you constantly lecture your child, he will want to rebel. Therefore, try as hard as you can to set aside your motherly feelings, and choose your battles.

Being a mother is not an easy job. Raising a child requires hard work and patience. Hopefully these lovable qualities of a great mother have given you a new perspective on parenting. Do you have any parenting advice? Are there other spectacular qualities that you, or your mother, have that you can share?
