Our first teachers are undoubtedly Moms. There are a thousand things we learn from them – taught and untaught. Here are 4 qualities we imbibed from them and can’t be more thankful for.
- Patience – the biggest virtue of a mother – Wondered sometimes if word patience came from the word Parent 🙂 When the madness is at its height, and you know that you have to slug it out, its perfect time to remember how your Mom would have handled the mayhem. Infinite inspiration descends ofcourse.
- Healthy food choices – Superfoods, high protein diets, organic – these words may have sprung up now but our mothers’ kitchens were taking care of all dietary essentials long before we realized. Thank heavens we are now able to give it to our kids.
- Together is Family – No celebrations are complete without over fave people around. Great that we got this early on and now don’t miss a chance to bring everyone together for our kids.
- Think tomorrow – Living in debt is definitely not a value our moms regarded as one. We saw them maintaining savings stash somewhere to fund a dream or take care of proverbial rainy days or simply for better future. Imbibing from our moms, we ensure there’s always some surplus so that slipping into debt doesn’t become a practice.
There ain’t a mother without dreams for her children. This is true for fathers too but nothing like a mother’s innate love and desire for her kids’ bright future.
Through cinemas, tv commercials, and other media forms, we have grown up picturing a sacrificial mother – Mother India rings a bell? Giving up her own pursuits, subjecting herself to odds at work or around the house yet giving unflinching, unrelenting care is the hallmark of an Indian Mother.
But honestly, other than your love and encouragement, what does your child need to realize those big dreams? The right answer would be – Financial Planning. Have you thought about back of hand calculations of cost of child education? Right from start to higher studies. In future it may touch a few crores. And what about expenses along the way – lifestyle, indulgences for him / her like a holiday, a swanky gadget, special coaching if your child is in performing arts or sports? And Oh wait! The big fat indian wedding is not even getting accounted for. Let’s not get there, as they say.
We know raising kids is by no means economical. Then why not be smart about it and have an investment plan around it? Merely saving up is not sufficient since inflation bites hard into savings. Today’s earnings have to be channelized to meet demands later. Question is, how do you do it? Well it’s nothing short of a scientific process, but an easy one. Through this blog, we will be your friend and guide to make dreams possible. We will give out simple tools, methods and suggestions so you would be able to set your personal & financial goals, make right choices of investments and accomplish your goals.. So you Mom, won’t just be a dreamer, but also an achiever.
