being a mother isnt just a biological one but also a social one...a woman can be called a mother if she had given birth to a baby(biological) and if she showed a motherly love and boding with someone and treated that someone as her own child (social). thats my own opionin.

A handmade card, cooking a meal for her, and spending most of the day with her. Oh, and telling her that you love her.

Biologically you are a mother but being a mother is a lot more than just simply having a baby. Being a mother entails a lot of love and responsibility.

What makes a mother a mother? Simply because God Himself has chosen each moms to be a moms themselves. Sounds confusing huh, but this is just a straight answer to it's point.

I am not a mother and not yet married. But Motherhood is something special, i believe. Happy Mother's Day to all mothers here. Being a mother is not limited only to give birth ... it will require more of everything. That is what make a mother a mother. Mother will take care the children of hers for the rest of their life.... teach them... look after them... be there for them... advice them... and even sacrifice themselves for the sake of the children. For mothers, enjoy the day that is dedicated to all of you... very special peoples... And my Mom... happy mother's day. Love you forever...

Giving birth to a baby is a mother. But there are good mother and bad mother. Being a good loving mother require a woman to nurture, guide, support, love and care about their children.

Hi there! Being a mother isn't just about having a baby. For me, being a mother means being able to love unconditionally. When you become pregnant, you don't know how your child will look. What the baby's gender will be. But the even when the baby is still inside your womb, you are already loving the baby. And when the baby comes out, you won't care no namtter how he or she will look like and instantly, you love your baby more. And when your child grows up, no one's really sure how he or she will be like. But still you love your child. And even when time comes that you get hurt by your children, you still love them.

No having a baby is not enough to become a mother, yes we mothers has the role of taking care of them but not the ends of our role. Being a mother has many ways to be a mother loving them,gives them support, being their playmate,their gurdian their bestfriend. Words cannot describe being a mother, like me who'se a single mom without emotional support from their father it's very hard for me to be a mother at the same time to be a father too. I will do all my best to gives them the best future for kids like them.

Loving children without expecting anything in return makes mother a mother. Not only smiling with child, but also crying when child is crying makes her mother. Touching even dirt of child with care and love makes mother a mother. Always raising her hands and praying for good life of children makes mother a mother. Guessing what is going on in minds and hearts of children even if they don't tell her, makes mother a mother. Spending whole life just worrying about her children , makes mother a unique mother in this world. The day a women become mother, she knows she lives now only for children. This is a great sacrifice, which only mothers can do and that is why mother is mother.

You are a mother when you gave birth to your children or adopt a child. A mother is a person who tended her child when s/he is sick. Making sure they get enough nutrition and attend to their needs, at all time.

A woman becomes a mother by having a baby but the responsibility of being a mother doesn't end there. A mother should take care of him and guide him until he grows up into a mature, responsible citizen of the society. Still, motherhood doesn't end there. It could take a lifetime since a mother should always be there whenever she is needed. Sometimes to give support either morally or financially.
