How to Treat Your Mom Like a Queen
To all the mother’s out there, happy belated Mother’s Day! To all the sons and daughters, we hope you treated your mom like the queen that she is! Although Mother’s Day is the designated time to lavish your mom with gifts, compliments and reassurances that she’s the most important person in your life, the reality is that you should treat your mom like that every day (except maybe for the gifts).
Here are 5 ways to show your mom how much you care the other 364 days of the year:
Listen: Mama knows! Listen to your mom and take her advice. She’s not talking just because she likes the sound of her own voice. She wants to help you make good decisions. Listening to her will make her feel more appreciated and might even prevent her from having to worry about you quite so much.
Offer to help: Being a parent is a full-time job. But unlike most jobs, this one doesn’t stop after a 40-hour week! Be a good son or daughter and offer to help your mom with her daily chores. From washing the dishes to vacuuming to doing the laundry, take a load off her plate and give her an opportunity to sit down and relax!
Say ‘thank you’: Your mom works hard to give you a happy life, and she really doesn’t ask for anything in return. While grand gestures aren’t necessary, a simple ‘thank you’ can go a long way. It’s human nature to crave acknowledgement for your hard work, and nobody works harder than your mom. Saying ‘thanks’ will show your mom that you notice and appreciate what she does for you.
Keep it Clean: Your mom is busy enough without having to clean after your mess. Be courteous and keep your room, bathroom and recreation area clean. It’s a fairly simple task, but can make a big difference.
Say ‘I love you’: Nothing is more important than having a good relationship with your mom. You might have disagreements and even get into arguments, but that doesn’t change the fact that your mom loves you more than anything. Telling her that you love her back is a very powerful thing and will only strengthen your bond.
