Mothering is a personal bond and is practised subjectively but I do firmly believe that the unifying thread among caring mothers is one of enduring joyful love and devotion to their children. Happy Mothering Sunday.
Parenting comes with its own challenges for every generation. For me it's the challenge of how to balance being a mum with being a woman in my own right. Give parents a break, there is no one size fits all and most of us do a great job.
