Mother's Day or March 8 is an emotionally charged day for all moms, but also for children alike. It is a day full of maternal and parental feelings that come to light, emotional hugs and loving and loving statements made by children to their mothers. How is this day for children without a mother and how can they be helped?
Even if grandparents, dad or other people take care of a child who is left without a mother, it is important not to isolate him or her from the events of this day or to wipe them off with the sponge in the calendar.
These children must be taught to face this day and to spend it as beautiful as possible! In addition, they must feel that they have a mother near them, even if they are not physically and that they are not "motherless" children; there are people you love.
It brings out the memories of my mother!
She removes the photo albums, the mother's personal belongings and especially brings to life full of life stories and fun about her past. For example, tell him about each picture separately, what is found in it, when it was made, tell the story of hailstones and fights, moments from his birth, tell him how much he loved him and still love him from there. from where it is.
Create new Mother's Day traditions!
Most of the children give gifts to their mothers on this day, they give parties and have dinner in the family celebrating this holiday. It does not mean that your baby cannot pay tribute to the mother. You can help him buy flowers and put them next to a beautiful picture where he is with his mother or go and throw flowers in a lake or on a water as a symbol of affection and appreciation for her.
There is no need to go to the place where she is buried (if she is dead), in order not to give a sad note to the moment, but you can bring a tribute in other ways. Then you can take it to the table or a pleasant playground. Always tell him how much you love him and that you will never leave him!
Find her a "mother" for this day!
It does not mean that the father must marry or that someone should adopt him, but that he must have another person in sight on this day to celebrate and to focus his attention on. It can be aunt, sister, grandmother, fine, nose etc. It is better if there is a person who cares more about him.
So guide him to make a nice March 8 gift for this person and explain the reason. He must know that he is not his mother, but that that person is always with him, and for good and evil and that he deserves his appreciation and affection as a mother.
Encourage him to write to his mother!
Even if his mother is no longer near him, it does not mean that he cannot convey his thoughts. Encourage him to write a letter for her and make sure no one will read it except him. Keep it well in a memory box and give it the letters accumulated over the child's time when it will grow old to remember. It will be exciting! Maybe even on the occasion of another March 8th!
Spend it with Mother's Day!
It is a holiday and the child must feel it, like the other children.
Remind him every time that although his mother is not physically close to him, she is still his mother and will always be there and watch over him at every step and take care of him.
