About this Quote

This quote speaks with the humbleness of motherhood. A mother knows that her child is capable of making errors, and that she needs to be gotten ready for any consequences that might emerge. She is not arrogant or happy, since she knows that her child's actions can have severe effects. The quote also talks to the unpredictability of parenting. A mom never knows when the school principal might call to report that her kid has done something incorrect. This quote functions as a tip that moms must constantly be gotten ready for the unforeseen, and that they must remain modest and understanding in the face of their child's errors.
