Mother’s Day Dos and Don’ts in Kenya

Don’t let her do any chores – For one day a year, everything is about her and her luxury. Go out of your way in ensuring she does not lift a finger to do a chore. She is royalty on Mother’s Day so treat her like one.

Do the laundry, cook, wash the dishes, buy the groceries and clean the house. All she has to do is sit back and be pampered.

Don’t spend all your time on social media – Gift your mother with your time. It is easy to take for granted what it means to sit down and have a conversation with your mother without your attention being diverted elsewhere. Quality time spent together is better than any gift you can give so turn of your phone and put it away and talk to your mother and exchange stories of your new experiences and work.

Don’t disappear after – do not be the person that only talks to the parents in the time leading up to mother’s day or disappears right after. Let mother’s day be a culmination of the special things you do for your mother throughout the year.

If you want to watch a movie , let her pick which one to watch, if you want to go to a park, let her lead the way when you get there so she decides which spots she likes for pictures. Let her do what she enjoys and you follow.
