The Invisible Mother
Kayt Molina

I think dads have a job to do here: To not let their kids take their moms for granted. Modeling good attention, respect, and care can go a long way.

But it’s also true that moms often simply need to insist on this respect and teach their children to be aware of what they do. Children are, as you mention, naturally egocentric … and when you add society’s pervasive taking-for-granted of “women’s work,” it’s very easy for kids and adults alike to miss the obvious: How much a particular woman is actually doing for them.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
