Mother’s Day is May 10th, just a few short days away. As a mother myself, and teacher of young children, I believe it is very important for children to take time to honor the important people in their lives. Young children are, by nature, very ego-centered; their narrow world often revolves around them and their needs. So when an opportunity arises to have your child focus on another person, take advantage of it! Of course, Mother’s Day also gives a child the chance to recognize how wonderful his mother is and to think about her special qualities.
