Ralph Waldo Emerson once said," Men are what their mothers made them." Very true, isn't it? Mother is the first lady in a boy's life. She is the one who takes all pains to make things possible for her son. One who loves him unconditionally and who provides shield to protect him from external threats. She makes him perfect by instilling sense of care and responsibility in him. She helps him open his wings and fly in the atmosphere of wisdom by showing her confidence in his abilities. She holds him tightly in storms of struggle and makes him rise up every time he falls. She keeps us under her umbrella of care without any expectations. 'Mother', a mere thought of this word gives immense calmness and confidence as if she is standing by our side. Greatness of mother can never be denied nor can it be questioned. Mother has been simply great since a long time and so the relation of mother and son. Let us check out the relation of a mother and a son in detail.
Bond Between Mother and Son
Mother of yesterdays used to be a mode of communication between father and son. She was like a bridge between her husband and son. That was the time when father, the head of the family had the position of dictator and an authoritative attitude. He was considered as mature and intelligent enough to take care of the well-being of his family. Any suggestion from any of the children was strict No-No. That was the time when son used to speak out all his thoughts, and frustration in front of his mother who listened to him patiently and calmly and always tried to console him. She was the lady who could stand for her son against the dominance of her husband. Since then or may be many years before that time, son and mother share great bonding. There is an invisible thread of love and care which keeps them together however physically distant they are.
Many families still follow the traditional rules laid on by a father, but to a very small extent. Now-a-days, the scenario has changed significantly. The authoritative father has changed into cool Dad. He is not only open to suggestions but he also thinks over them and adopts them whenever possible. Today father and son share a good bonding; they discuss things from movie to F-1 race and from politics to share market. Does that mean mother son relation is not significant today? Not actually, today he needs her more than yesterday! Yesterday the son needed mother to convince his dad, but today he needs her more because of externalities. Yesterday's need was in-house, but today they need her care and advice to tackle issues of soft nature. Today he goes out of his comfort zone, meets several people on his way and gets various experiences. His mother counsels him and teaches him to differentiate between the right and the wrong. Today she provides him a shelter after huge fight with world. She makes him independent and brave to take challenges. She also empowers him to take his own decisions. She unleashes his potential to succeed and helps him to choose his path. Her dedication and commitment towards her children is endless. No gift in the world can match the gift that she gave us-Life.
Now is the time to shower your love and respect on her. So, rush out and plan a surprise for your mother on this Mothers' Day.
