With the changing intellectual environment, there have also been shifts in the idea of what children need, and what being a good mother requires. Some may think that a parent needs to spend face to face time with their children. But what is really necessary is helping one’s children with their problems. Many businesswomen with children are increasingly using technology to communicate and aid their children with homework. If that doesn't work—and if they have the resources required—they hire a tutor to help their children. The point is, regardless of whatever is happening or changing, a good mother is still there for her children, whether physically, virtually, or both. For better or worse, mothers socialize us, molding and influencing our behavior, teaching us to say please and thank you, as well as being reasonable moral citizens. Mothers and fathers dress their children and get them to understand the importance of an education. That is the sort of stuff that is passed from parent to child.
Don’t forget, Father’s Day is June 15th this year (a Sunday)—fathers tend to get jealous if you only remember Mother’s Day. Plan your presents ahead of time, or else you’ll spend hours wandering around looking for something. I suggest a nice tie or bags of Cheetos. Or a bag of Cheetos tied with a tie. Dads apparently love Cheetos.
