The Typical Mother

I am blessed to be on the receiving end of an eleven-year-old’s homeschool journal assignments, and here is what this wise, young girl recently wrote in response to the prompt, “Describe what you think of as the typical mother.”

The typical mother should raise her children in the Lord, take them to church and Sunday School (we’re talking about this right now in Catechism). She should love her children, and treat them kindly. She should punish them when necessary, and reward them when necessary. She should submit to her husband as to the Lord. This is what I think of as the typical mother.

I agree.

A blessed Mother’s Day this Sunday to all of you typical mothers out there! xo
