What Do Mothers Want?

By: Dr. Dorree Lynn


I had a mom, I am a mom and two of my daughters are moms. I loved mother’s day. It was a wonderful contest ---which mom could call the other first. Gifts galore and all the love expressed was wonderful. But, that’s only one day. What do mom’s really need and want the rest of the time?

1. Family love and respect and help in the kitchen, make your own bed and take out the trash without being asked.


An unexpected hug and “I love you mom."

3. Peace and quiet every once in a while.

4. Good child care for those who work.

5. Adequate health coverage for her family.

6. Equal pay and no glass ceiling.

7. Good education for her kids.

8. Safe streets.

9.Adequate after school care.

10. Her own choice about how she wants to teach their kids.

11. A family that cares and shows that they do.

12. Breakfast in bed, even when it’s not mother’s day.

Honoring mom on her special day, is a wonderful opportunity to say and do something special. But, please remember Mom the other 364 days of the year. That’s even more special.

Life is too hard to do alone,
