To be a good mother is to be all things but mostly it means putting your children first. You have to love them unconditionally, with the wisdom of accepting their faults while at the same time making the best of them. You need to have the committment to encourage their strengths with sensitivity. You must know that children come through us but are not ours. You must be strong as it is in you to be. You must be creative. You must be energetic. You must be so many things!!

a good mother lives with her children meaning she cries, laughs and argues with them. most important is that she loves them more than herself and will do anything to keep them from harm. as long as the heart is in the right place i don't think any mother could be bad even though she might make some mistakes. ciao vicky

i am a mother to two daughters... stopped working since year 2000 to take home of my family and my daughters... a lot of times it's rewarding but there are times also that it's frustrating... by this time, more or less i can determine what a good mother is like... guidance to your children is a priority... providing for their wants is second and please take note that not all of their wants are needed... on top priority a mother has to be there always on times that their children need them most... being a good mother is that and more to the point that you have to give 100% of yourself sometimes... that is a responsibility and a lifetime commitment...

It is the resposibility of a woman to uphold her home,this can be done by pay certain price(prayers,lots of love,patience,understanding,etc).Any woman who can pay this price is a good mother.

For me being a good mother is spending time with my children, nurturing them, listening to them being their friend. Help and guide them into being the best person they can be when they are older. I love my children dearly and they all know it. They are growing up in a very loved family.

loving your babies, keep them safe, and give them what they need. dont worry about giving them stuff that you cant afford or they just think they cant live without.

I think a good mother will put her childs well being before her own, she can forgo her own wishes for the betterment of the child. The hard part about being a good mother is that you don't know you were or were not one until you aren't needed as much by your children. Until you see how your children behave as adults, you don't really know if you were a truely good mother. ps - same goes for a good father...
