being a good mother is a very complicated matter because it takes a lot of courage and patience specially when your kids are toddlers..but being a good mom comes from the heart and from God.. its my first time to be a mom.i am enjoying every single moment of our lives together,because i know the time will come for her to grow and i can never bring back the time when we simply hugs and laugh together

likewise, i have a 2 year old daughter and i think at that stage she's just doing what she wants. She may always hurt me when we play but she's just a toddler afterall. She doesn't know what she's doing because she's just playing. that's what kids are only doing. For patience, i really wish that god grant me millions of those because sometimes i lose it when my daughter keeps messing the whole house and throwing all the stuff she see.

being a mother is full of responsibility. you have to nurture them, teach them good morals,teach them to be a good person, to make dreams and fulfilling them. guide them as they grow older and supporting them in all their decisions they make in life

Well there is no such thing as a perfect mom, we all know that... A good mom though yeah maybe.. Though we all do what we can.. Being a good mom to me means, loving your child, giving your child what they need food, love, caring for... Making sure they bathe and sleep and have enough to eat.. I think that's what being a good mom is to do and all about.. Just my oppion!

Hi, i think that all mothers do try their level best to be good mothers to their children as no mother will ever want any harm or ill for them and would try her utmost to give them the best. I try to be a good mother too, by trying to instill human values, making them clutural and understand relationships, share their joys and sorrows, be with them and for them whenever they need me, as a friend, guide, teacher, parent, we have to be all in one for them. The children gradually learn the feelings adn emotions also, and thats a beautiful phase too, all this is beside their educational side, which as a tis is taken care of, its these other values that make the person who they are, so need more attention and looking into.

I think it is very important to really listen to your child and to show them some respect because if you do they listen to you better and have more respect for you. I am very close to all three of my girls but at the same time they know that I am the parent and what I say goes. Second love them unconditionally.

It's hard to answer how we could be a good mother to our children. I think "LOVE" is the perfect way to be a good mother to our children. With love we can do whatever to make our childs be better. The most important thing to teach our childs (in my opinions) is humanity and respection.

I can be a good mother for my child in my own way by giving him the best of time as i can give, spending quality time together as a family and giving him all the love that i can. With the help of God I can mold my child become a better person by educating him, opening his mind in the word of God. Disciplining him in a good way is also the best thing that parent can give to their children. My husband dont want to impose any punishment to our son when he done wrong or things that we dont like in front of many people, he talks to him in a nice way in the place that no people around him except us. Though we dont ignore his foolishness around so many people but we didnt hurt him by spanking him or punishing.

I think being a good mother is doing what you think is best for your children.

Being a good mother is really a difficult task especially in guiding children to be a good person. In my own style and method of parenthood, I guide my children through modeling. I let them see what I did for them to follow. But I'm not forcing them to do things that they don't want yet I let them realize things being in the other shoes. I am guiding them not as a mom but a bestfriend. A best of friend that can trade secrets, making some naughtiness sometimes....LOL, that comes my mind that let them be more closer to them. :) The most important is...we all do good and avoid evils.
