what does it mean to be a mom???

During my day I thought about this question and wonder what is it to be a mom..

Is being a mom means nurturing, raising, making the kid safe or what???
I think that the most important thing is to provide your child with love and accept him the way he is.

It is important to understand that this child is a gift from God and we will be asked if we full fill our mission.

Well being means:
1- provide ur child with his primary things such assaulter, food,...

2- teach ur child life and social skills. such as self defense

3- listen to him and enjoy his stories

4- share part of your life with him and let him now that he is important to you

5- make him choose. for example let him choose his bed sheet color or his pigamas.

6- respect him as a person and love him the way he is and don't ever compare  him with anyone

7- play with him and have quality time together

8- teach them rules and explain why you say for things no

9- check ur blood every six months

The secret is to enjoy his laughter and his stories. Enjoy going out with him, enjoy playing with him, enjoy being a MOM.
And remember the way you treat him now the same way he will treat you later..

Also it helps to have a mother community practice back in kuwait my friend was doing some mom gathering were mom will gather and exchange their experience..
lucky me my kid's school ,the children's school, does the same thing.. some moms will gather with some teachers and they will be chatting about parenting issues.
I went to one meeting were they were showing us some useful parenting books, also in the gathering we talked about our kids' food ect.

talking about parents I would like to thank my great mom and dad who always listened to me and provide me with strength. they are always there for me.



  1. Hi Nour, Reading your post made me think about a quote I heard once that really resonates with me now that I am the mother of teenagers - "Parents can only be as happy as their unhappiest child." It is a hard job, mothering, isn't it?

  2. I haven't had the honor of becoming a mom yet, but I think you are absolutely right.

    I also love your quote Stephanie :)

    I would also say that mom can even extend to being the owner of animals... because your motherly instinct kicks in whenever one of them is feeling sick or just wanting their overall well-being.

  3. Wow Nour, what a beautiful post. I'm not a mom but I have a lot of little nieces and nephews and I think your post can help me connect better with them. Even though I am not their mom, i am still a huge part of their lives, so thank you for your wise words.
