for 18 years on living in this planet, i have met thousands of people already, some remained close to me and some sis not. but of all those people, i can say that my mom is the most patient person i have even known.! i try to be as patient as her but i can't. i even asked my friends bout it but they often tell me "it's normal for mothers to be that patient, but i wish my mom is like that" so meaning to say their mom is not as patient as mine... what do you think guys, are mothers really patient? of let's just say, does our patience change when we become mothers???

Tammy, mothers are one of the best creatures that have been created. They are not just patient, they also posses the quality of endurance. I believe that when a woman becomes a mother, her endurance level rises, she can endure any pain or aches from the body to the heart. Mothers can also be as strong as a bear especially if they are fighting for their children's right. Noone can hurt their children. Mothers also posses automatically the power of having unconditional love, not just to her children but to friends too. A woman becoming a mother is a miracle so just having us their children is a big gift from God. For some it was easy for a woman to have children, but there are women who can't have any. Yes, my mother is a very patient mother. She is my idol in many cases. For me, her patience is extraordinary. For many years people have tried to break my mom's string of patience, I confess, I tried too but mind you, she never gave up. Her perspective about life of any individual is different from her, her children, relatives and friends. I always see her being humble to give way for other people's time to speak, to succeed and to laugh. She knows how to enjoy life as it comes. I want to learn how she does it. I am happy and thankful for having such a patient mom!

the endurance thing is so right, thanks for adding that. i totally dont understand how mothers can endure certain pains. up to now, being able to see how my mom lives her day to day existence in this world, she still amazes me in so many ways. i love her so much.. :)

You're welcome. I am glad that you could see the hardship your mom went through. Only few children notices that, most of the kids now just know how to say "my allowance." ...

Patience is an important character that a mother should have but not all mothers have it. Mothers who took care of their children from the day they were born and until reaching the right age are already patient. By the time you will get married and have a children of your own you will know how to be patient.

tammy, do you write at triond? I saw an avatar like your there and I even befriended you. Am gaby7 at triond. Back to your post, i just want to say, mothers are unbelieveable creatures. They deserve more respect than they actually get. I love my mother because, i know just how much I nagged her yet she never was fatigued by my nagging!

You really never think about the patience part.But I do believe you have a lot of patience with your children and grandchildren.I do believe your patience changes when you have children.I honestly didn't think I had any patience,but when you look back on it.You have more than you think.I have even more patience with my grandchildren or it seems that I notice it more anyway.

Mostly becoming a mother tends to make a woman more patient in her dealings especially with her kids. However not all mother are patient. Some of them do not care of their children, some of them are ignorant and tend to made bad judgment on their child and some of them may be strict with their children.

I think that alot of things about ourselves that we didn't know existed come out after we have children. Some are for the positive and some are negative. Parent's need to be good role models for their children and I think that it may try us in many areas to be all that we can be. Striving to be the best parents we can.

Mothers are really patient. I know my mom was very patient with me and my siblings. I can remember my mom telling me all the time that I didnt have any patience, I didnt. She would say when you have kids that will all change. She was right, I relaized that when I had my first daughter. From the beginning I had to be patient. Mom are patient

Let me begin with the with this "Patience is a virtue", and i say hardly few people have the skill to be patient. Not everyone gets the same kind of childhood and upbringing, childhood, to a certain extent, is the mirror of your future, though not always. As far as i know Patience usually emerges from your life's experiences, the more you go through tough times, the more you become patient. A modern mother could be patient like the mother in olden days, and vice versa. So let it be anything, any trait you have, you learn it from seeing someone or from your upbringing or your life's experiences or all of the three. Who knows you could also try to maintain the same patience as your mother does.

since im a mother now for 11 years, i can say that being patient with my kids is an attitude you will acquire as time goes by. maybe because, now that i am a mother, i can understand my kids because ive been a kid too. you are very lucky for having such a mother. because not all mothers are like that. this is because those people are not yet ready, i think, for motherhood. and they dont have the heart of being a mom.

I beleive that a mother has to be endowed with a sufficient amount of patience. she puts up with so much from a child. the burden can be quite cumbersome without patience to balance the load.
