Even for moms (and dads) it is never good to assume…always ask what someone wants or prefers.
One of my son’s friend’s Mom (and also, PTO president) I know always suggested we follow the “do unto others as they would have done to them” vs. the other popular addage we all learned at a young age.
With your offspring, it is no different. They have opinions, they have preferences and they may not want to do what you want to do. I know – as you do, too – that there isn’t always flexibility…
However, if there are options or you can be open to suggestions, then always ask. It makes for a much less stressful and controversial day, even on Mother’s Day.
