Women, throughout history, have always supported each other through motherhood. Even where children were not born of women, that nurturing spirit of motherhood birthed the expression ‘It takes a village to raise a child’. In the times we live in, the structure of a village in the traditional sense has changed, but the support remains the same.
Today, most parents employ a day-mother either in the form of domestic helper or through a day-care facility. This co-parenting arrangement supports both the physical and emotional needs of our little ones.
“As a first-time mother, it helps to share my experiences with other mothers, because we can learn from each other and adapt those lessons to the unique needs of our babies.”
This means, though, that many parents worry about their children, and about their ability as parents, to nurture and raise their children in the best possible way. That is why each parents needs to be able to bare their soul to a trusted groups of parents, and find solace and comfort in this modern-day tribe of mothers.
