In an era of multitasking, it might be easier for a male to co-relate several tasks at a time but for a working female, co-relation between the task of upbringing a child and that of office work is not very easy. Children in the age group of eight to sixteen years have almost all the information that an adult can have. Mobile has given an easy access to all sorts of information whether appropriate for the tender age or not. So guardians should be smart enough to deal with the situations. Sometimes they face severe problems in handling a growing child as they cannot go violent with the child.
Smart children need smart care. Smart moms show anger at a moment and bring smile at the same time at the same moment. ‘Spare the rod, spoil the child’, was a popular saying prevalent during old time. A decade ago, moms used to be the friends of their kids and now the time requires a mingling of both the attributes. Women are in touch with all the modern techniques for keeping themselves aware of the recent facts and findings. This range is very wide right from the best quality of huggies to the best quality of healthcare drinks. They want their children to keep a good stuff of knowledge in their minds. At the same time they want them to give proper respect too. Smart moms want their children to learn three Es to lead a peaceful life, they are, respect for Elders, Ethics, and Emotions.

Emotions are essential to keep mutual bonding strong. It makes a person sensible and it is the one on which a relationship is maintained.
Modern moms never want their children to compromise on the point of moral values. Though they are free to attend socials yet they are instructed to come back before late nights. They are in touch with children when they are out after school hour. They are too apprehensive to know that modernity does not mean going far from ethics. Morality and humanity are the parts of lifestyle. If it tends to be erased out, then it might create destruction of a family. Parents want their children to get up smartly but at the same time they want their association with the rituals. Marriages and festivals are the occasions where one needs a combination of both.

Such a company provides her solace in grief and hope in despair. The pleasure or pain derived from any activity must be told honestly to such a confidential mate, it will give satisfaction and confidence and the smart mom will feel relaxed.
A recent survey conducted on about five hundred ladies in Switzerland concluded that if you describe all your activities of a day to your closest mate then it not only deepens the mutual bonding but also renders a healthful mind and body. Psychologists give a different terminology for this concept which is very explicit and vivid. It is the interaction of listening and speaking therapy.
