Mother's love can be really beautiful and incredible but that's only if you are fortunate enough to have one, know one or even be one yourself. Generally, parents should love their children, care for them and protect them but then the love of a mother is always exceptional in most cases and even as some father's don't show their love towards their children, that doesn't rule out the fact that they can't also be loving and caring even better than some mothers. At some point in my life I never really cared about the love that mother's have towards their children because I grew up with the love of a father and I was satisfied.

But that doesn't mean my mother didn't love and care for me but, there were buts. It took me quite some time to get to know how the love of a mother truly feels and when I started getting that feeling, I knew I've missed a lot not getting a mother's love but then I'm happy because that also gave me the opportunity to have a lot of mothers love. I literally got love and care from most elderly women I got to know and that paved way for me to start appreciating the love of a mother even more.
The way mother's show their love towards their children and even other children around them is something that shouldn't be taken for granted by any child because there are a whole lot of children out there facing this cruel world all by themselves, without no one to care for them, no one to scold them, no one to guide them, no one to provide some basic needs for them, they have to do everything by themselves and trust me, those of us that had a taste of our parents especially our mothers love won't understand what they are really going through.
But then, the question is how do we know our mothers truly love and care for us? Is it by them giving us all we want or by them praising us even when we are obviously doing the wrong thing? Or maybe by them defending us or taking sides with us when we do something bad? Well, I bring it to you that non of those things I just mentioned is a way to show love, especially from a mother to a child and vice versa. Sadly, most parents, mother's especially are scared of spelling out their children's wrongs because they think the children will think they are wicked, but is that really true?


Here is a short story that would send you a message, there was this boy child who happened to be the only child of his parents. Due to the fact that the couples could no longer give birth to children, they made sure their son lacked absolutely nothing, to them, they showed him love and care. Although the father of the children tried his best to instill good morals in the boy, the mother would always plead on the child's behalf and even going to the extent to threatening the father of leaving him. And because of the fear of losing his family, the man had to let the mother take care of the child as she wanted.

When the child grew up to an accountable age, the father passed away and that made him even more free to do what he wanted because he knows he is always right in his mother's eyes. When he got into high school, he mingled with the wrong friends and with time, he started engaging in criminal activities like stealing, raping and others. Whenever he got into trouble, as always the mother would look for a way out for him but on this faithful day, he got caught by the people of his community for stealing and the people were raged to the point that they took him to the community townhall to use him as an example to others who might be thinking of living their life the same way.
While all these was happening, someone who saw the boy being dragged to the town hall, and quickly went to inform the boys mother and before she got there, they've beaten the boy almost to his death and the boy pleaded that he should at least say goodbye to his mother who was already in tears and they allowed him. When his mother came closer to him, he bit her ear so hard that it cut off. Everyone was surprised by the boys action, he asked his mother one question, which is, MOTHER WHY? Why didn't you correct me when I was wrong? Why did you made me feel like I was doing the right thing? And many more questions he asked.


According to the story, you will realize that the boy at first was feeling his mother loved him so dearly because he got all he could ever ask for, he could do anything and get away with it. And there his mother was, thinking that by covering up for her son, shows how much she loves him but that was not how everything turned out. In the end she still lost her precious child and in a very cruel way all because she refused to realize that when you spare the rod, you spoil the child. As a mother, you only love your child/children when you take note of their mistakes and correct them immediately. The child might see you as wicked but that shouldn't matter so much to you if you truly love that child.

A mother's love is not something that is crystal clear to everyone, if it is then you should know that you aren't doing it right. Nobody loves it when they are being corrected and your children or child is not left out. They might be angry with you at that moment but then, it is left for you to draw them closer to yourself again and let them know why you had to discipline them the way you did and also plead with them not to do it again. And as they grow older, they will get to understand better the love you have for them whenever you scold or discipline them.
From the so many words I've said, as a mother or even father, do you really love your child by actions or just mere words? You don't have to give me your answer, just know it for yourself, that's what really matters. And if you are loving your children as you should, I give you a thumbs up because it's not easy, not at all. And if you are not, I hope this helps you to start making the right choices henceforth.

Until next time, stay AWESOME!!!

Hmm, deep, that's such a tragic story don't love a child to foolishness, no wonder the bible says, spare the rod, you spoil the child

Yes dear, it was tragic. Thank you so much for your contribution, it's highly appreciated 🥰

Wow...this was a deeper insight my dear
Reading the story of that boy and his mother , I felt so bad ..tears almost ran through my eyes especially when he said "mother why"

Spare the rod and spoil the child indeed

His mother failed

Yes, mothers love is unique but not when you fail to do the needful 🧐

I am a mother and I know when to use mere word to correct and when to apply severe disciplinary measures

My first son can explain to you better 🤣🤣
.I hate nonsense
.you can go out there to paint my motherhood journey black 🖤.

No way,I am not sparing any rod oo

I am loving but I discipline as well

Thanks for this amazing tips

The first time I heard that story, I actually cried for the boy but then, I still blame him too for not using his common sense to know what to do and what not to do but his mother was the major cause of his death.

I trust you on that, words do the magic most of the time but if you notice it's not working effectively you can use the rod of discipline on that child. And yes, you shouldn't care about what other's will say if you truly love your children, tell them when they are wrong, don't take sides with them when it's obvious your neighbors child is right and many more. With time they will understand better.

Thank you so much for your contribution my amiable ambassador, it's always a great privilege having you around ❤️.

That's right, every woman is a mother and that's why we shouldn't be so disappointed when we don't have children because we do, start being a good mother to some else's child first, it will help a lot in making you a better mother to your children.

Thank you so much for your contribution dear, it's nice having you around.

Great post dear... You really got the whole concept of motherhood.

Mothers although our maternal mothers speaks volume but honestly, every good woman we have met on our way growing up are indeed mothers and if we are patient enough, we will feel the mother's love Through them

That's right Sam, there are good women out there and they don't have to be our mother first before they show us the love that they want to show to us.

Thank you so much for your contribution sir, it's always a great privilege having you here, I can't stop saying that because it is, hehe so deal with it, lolz. Don't mind me oo😂 just want to make you smile 🤣.

Hahaha and I did smile reading that

Thanks as always

I'm happy to know it worked 😀



Do not spare the rod..... this means that though you love a child, it doesn´t mean you should not caution him when he does the wrong thing. The mother only loved him and would cover him for things he does, not knowing she was taking it the wrong way. Loving and letting children know what they do wrong is the right upbringing you will give to them because, in the end, they will come to be proud of you when they are moving higher in life.

The story of the boy is a sad one because, to me, it was love and negligence that made the mother lose her only child. I came through #dreemport and it was a nice read from me too.

Yeah, sometimes children just need conviction that what they are doing is wrong and when they don't get that info from someone they love, it's very hard for them to accept it. And this is one of the main reasons why we have to be the one to spell out the wrongs of those we say we love because coming from another person might not end well.

I heard this story too. You are absolutely right on this. Some parents hardly correct their children, they say "he is a small boy". Some hate to see their children cry, without asking questions they are ready to make life difficult for the person who caused their child to cry. While showering gifts is fine, correcting, discipling, teaching the child morals and the way of God are all included in what makes a good parent. Thanks for your work

Yeah, that story was popular at some point, I'm happy you heard it. You have digested my lesson so well and I must commend and appreciate you for that. We love people when we show them the right path to go and also guide them in that right direction.

Thank you so much for your contribution, I'm really grateful 🥰.
