As mothers, we always have the best interest of our children at heart. We want them to be healthy and happy. We want to provide them with a good life, a good future.

Parenthood is a phase of life where demands are high and resources like time and money are limited. Out of love, many parents choose to put their children’s needs above their own and sacrifice their personal needs. However, if we truly want the best for our children, I personally feel we as mothers need to take good care of ourselves too. And it is possible to find the balance.

This May as we celebrate Mother’s Day, I am dedicating a series of articles to enhance the financial well-being of all the wonderful mothers out there.

Mothers – You are Important and You Matter.
