To treat our children as children of God, we would first have to treat ourselves as embodiments of God. If you were to try to define God in a single word, it can be none other than love. But what is the nature of God’s love? God’s love is infinitely selfless, expansive, and deep, and it is in that direction that a parent’s love has to proceed. God created parents to share this love with all of creation. So the main job of parents, especially the mother, is to shower the child with all the love at her command.
