7 Mom Rules You Need To Implement Right Away!

Team WOWRAL Apr 21, 2016

Why? Because we all are being spoilt and going bad with our habits!

When was the last time you actually behaved like a proper human being with all the goodness and love? yeah, we know you will have to think more!

It is not easy given the routine of today that we cater to a lifestyle that is a little slower and need to perform the procedures step by step. We need patience and time and we are running out of it for both. We need information on our hands, calls at our ease, connectivity to the world and regular updates of everything (even Kardashians and that is so sick!).

But what about the good old rules and discipline that our generation learnt and practiced to an extent? And the worst is we know that we are succumbing to a hollow that has no moral values and ethics yet take no pains and pay no heeds to what we witness.

Perhaps the time has come to bring back the good old mom rules back!

1. No washed hands? Well you cannot touch anything.

1. No washed hands? Well you cannot touch anything.

Don't we all know the havoc that broke loose in our homes when we would touch something with dirty hands; specially something that was to be eaten? Then and there would our moms hold us and take to the bathroom doors to be clean and tidy. Well we miss that dragging and how!

This emphasized hygiene. Not sanitizers or tissues. But real cleaning.

2. That look..

2. That look..

..defined every thing. The moment your mom would give this look, you knew that whatever you are either doing or have done, she knows it ALL. Now there would be a million things that could be wrong. Some scandalous while some as simple as not closing the door while leaving. But that look- made you so alert. We really need to bring that back for our children.

3. Are you going to wear that?

3. Are you going to wear that?

How many times do we send our children to school without polished shoes or wrinkled shirts straightened with hands or books not arranged according to the time table? Or even us- going to office without having breakfast or wearing the same old clothes. Well, moms would not let us do that. So we need to impose this rule asap.

4. Don't lie. Or...

4. Don't lie. Or...

Nopes. never ever. Mom I promise!

5. Staying by each other's side in sickness and health.

5. Staying by each other's side in sickness and health.

Ever remember that you were sick and lonely as a child? No. Never. Even when moms went to fetch the medicines they made sure that someone from the family was at our side. Her smiling face and assuring words healed us faster.

Why don't we do that more to our children now?

6. Keep that thing away!

6. Keep that thing away!

No phone, nothing of your tech stuff on my dining table when food is laid. Clear?

Yes Mom!

End of discussion it was. Now can we take off our hands? Well, think about it.

7. Family accepts, never neglects.

7. Family accepts, never neglects.

Point out what is wrong with someone but help them improve. Not just sideline them with blames and names. Families are not stepping stones that you go ahead forgetting what helped you. But they are like ladders which help you climb higher while maintaining the balance. Never forget that. Make it a rule that there are 'sorrys' and 'thank yous' in the house. Love needs nurturing. Take that up as a challenge!

Over generations, moms have known the best. Finally it is our task how to lay the same values and discipline forward and build a strong foundation.
