How Your Relationship With Your Mom Can Change Over Time

People say that a mother is she who can take the place of all others but whose place no one else can take. But what if, as time goes by, you become more and more like her? Over the years, a mother’s relationship with her children can grow to become something very different than what it was at first. As she grows older, children grow wiser, and after a while, in most cases, the roles are reversed. For example, think about something your mother always used to tell you. That’s probably something you tell her very often now.

Bright Side wants to present you with 9 illustrations, showing some before and after moments of a mother’s relationship with her children as time goes by. But at the end of the article, you’ll find a bonus that reminds us that no matter how many years go by, there are some things that never change.

1. Before, moms had to make sure their kids were warm, and now it’s their turn to make sure their moms don’t catch a cold.

2. Before, moms taught their children how to use a pencil. Now, it’s them teaching their moms how to use a cell phone.

3. As teenagers, the relationship with moms used to be kind of stormy, but now they’ve become best friends.

4. Before, mothers took their children to the doctor, and now it’s them taking their moms in when they’re not feeling great.

5. Before, mothers took their children to the store to buy clothes, but now children teach them how to buy clothes online.

6. Before, mothers would find keys and other missing belongings. Now, children find the items that moms lose.

7. Before, mothers used to ask their children to call them when they arrived somewhere, but now it’s their children who ask them to call when they get home.

8. Before, moms used to comb their daughters’ hair. Now, their daughters comb theirs.

9. Before, moms begged their children to eat enough fruits and vegetables. Now, it’s their children asking them to eat healthily.

Bonus: Before, moms could always sense what was up with their kids and what they were thinking. And now, they still do!

Can you tell us in what ways you’re like your mother? What do you do for her now that she used to do for you when you were a kid? We’ll be waiting for your answers in the comment section.
