Getting late for a meeting,
Slung his coat over the shoulder,
He bounded out of the house.
As he drove away, she came
Running down the stairs two at a time.
‘Wait, wait’, she said,
But he had already left.
Her mouth crumpled
Like a used wrapping paper.
He forgot to give her a goodbye kiss,
She whispered in a trembled voice.
She called him saying accusingly
That he left without giving her a kiss.
‘I am sorry darling’, he said.
‘It’s okay’, she said,
Trying to be grown up,
As she cut the call.
Gulped down her breakfast gloomily,
Wore her shoes, picked her school bag
And started to walk out of the door.
As she climbed down the steps,
The car stopped outside the house.
He got out of the car.
She ran to him, her face lit up.
‘I’m sorry I forgot’, he said.
He picked her up and hugged her.
Said nothing, her jaw ached from smiling.
The first relationship a son will ever have is with his mother. A well-bonded child does better emotionally, behaviorally, academically and demonstrates resistance to peer pressure.
A mother teaches emotional intelligence to her son, which ultimately ensures that he can not only understand his own feelings, but also can be compassionate to others. This opens a space to teach him the power of intimacy, which ultimately leads to happiness in all relationships.
A son in late adolescence needs emotional support from his mother. He needs that hug and kiss on his cheek, that restores him, no matter what’s going on in his life.
Behind every successful man, there is a controlling mother. By constant communication with him, she promotes his emotional intelligence. Because of this, he has better friendships and close relationships, which help him have a happy life.
Salute to all the mothers. And Happy Mother’s Day!
