I believe a mother is a child's first teacher and regardless of the child's age, the day is full of life lesson opportunities. Although I try to take advantage of each one, there are many missed moments. If I did take advantage of them, I'd be talking all day! I came across the below quote, which is a great teaching tool.
"The mediocre teacher tells. The good teacher explains. The superior teacher demonstrates. The great teacher inspires."
William Arthur Ward
I guess a combination of them all would equal to a Mother!
