The care that a mother has for her child is an intense bond, which is also driven by a great desire to see children prosper and have a good quality of life, while staying safe from harm. Children learn a number of values from the home, and while schooling and peer interaction can also teach other social tenets, maternal influence can still have the greatest impact on development.
One of the biggest concepts that all mothers try to instill is the sense of responsibility.
This can become difficult since concept and action in this case are not always the same. Further challenges may also arise in cases where modern living has reduced much of the need to learn certain skills that can aid in responsible action.
Children are also a product of the social changes that they experience. With the instant gratification and easy access that technology provides, basic tasks like feeding one’s self and preparing foods can take considerably less effort. However, while this reliance may help children learn to become responsible for self care, it overlooks the fact that the solution to the situation is still dependent upon outside help.
