Just before Mother's Day, we asked some Casey's Pond residents what impact their mothers ahd on them and if they had any advice for mothers.
Here are their priceless answers:
"Patience is a virtue. Time with your children means so much. Give them a lot of affection and what they learn from you is how they'll be. Read, read, read!" -Vi Effinger
"If I ever fell, my mom would say, 'Offer it up.' It made me not a complainer." -Jim Rabbitt
"Love your children. Hug them. Praise them. Try to be positive." -Aniela Endy
"It takes time to be a good mother." -Diane Prichard
"What I learned from my mother is that it is important to have good friends, to want to do things, to teach your children and to give them any opportunity you can." -Janet Regan
"Maintain close contact. Enjoy! Spend as much time with your family as you can. Listen to them. Have fun and show love, appreciation and interest." -Marion Gibson
We hope you take some of these ideas to heart and grow as a person, whether you are a mother or the child of a mother.
