My Mother - In Kids’ Eyes

In school, I am sure our kids have been asked to write essays on “The Person I Admire Most”, “My Family” or even “My Mother”.

When we have a chance to lay hands on essays of the above topics, I am sure we get a better insight of our kids’ version of us. We get excited to read on to find out how our kids feel about us.

As mothers, our hearts melt when our kids describe us as the person they admire most or when they describe us beautifully in their essays.

Sometimes, our kids express their impressions of us in pictures.


This is ME in Darren’s eyes:)


As mothers, we know that there is no progress card to assess our performance.

When the going gets tough, we sometimes ask ourselves whether we have played our role well as a parent.  When our kids get on our nerves or misunderstand us, exasperation creeps over us.

As mothers, we become motivated when we know that no matter how badly our kids agitate us and in return, even when we discipline them, our kids DO appreciate us and they DO understand.

They may not express their appreciation for us openly in words or daily actions, but when their gratitude for us are put into words in writing, it seems like we have been injected with a new drive of energy to power on.

When my 9-year old wrote down his thoughts for me in my birthday card and surprised me with these words of motivation, I was almost in tears. I was inspired to be a even better mother.


As a mother, the best gift I value from my kids is not heaps of gifts for Mother’s Day, for birthdays …. Just knowing that I have at least earned that little respect and appreciation from them, is enough to power me on for a long long time.
