Happy Mothers Day

Where would we be without mothers? The World is based on mothers and now more than ever we are in dire need of good quality mothering.

But what is a mother? A mother is a biological and/or social female parent of an offspring but the title mother is often given to a woman other than the biological parent, if it is she who fulfills the social role. What does a mother do? A mother needs to develop a healthy connection between herself and her child in order to form a secure base from which the child may later venture forth into the world.

At the Open Council we recognise the great work that mothers have done over the years and so it is with great pleasure that we wish all mothering members a very happy mothers day. Click for the Open Council 'Mothers Day Bouquet' here.
