Children usually grow up in the care of their mothers. For a baby his mother fondly feeds him with milk, pats him and cradles him. The baby is lulled to sleep in the fond hands of its mother. The baby in time grows up into a fine young man or women, who may even rule the world. It is to be remembered that the greatest conquerors of the world had all been helpless babies once. Had it not been for the fond care of their mothers, they would never have grown up to conquer the world. As a baby, it is dependent on its mother for everything. And the mother usually takes pleasure in caring for her baby and seeing it grow. The child learns many things from its mother. The mother’s influence on the little one during the formative years plays a vital role in shaping the child into an adult-whether good or bad, hardworking or lazy, careful or careless, an achiever or a loafer. It is the mother who moulds the child into a great leader. So we can say that it is the mother who trains the little one to rule the world in future. The often quoted proverb underlines a mother’s influence on the growing child.
