great expectations

snow leopard three and a half months old watermarked

After watching mum and three month old snow leopard twins girls, over a period of two hours at Twycross Zoo, last night, and reading a local business’s call for a new apprentice, this morning, it occurred to us that great mums are like great employers.

The requisite ingredients of mothering and employing, in pursuit of the best possible enlightened self interested result:

care and compassion

caring to teach and loving to listen

guiding and shaping

watching alertly (even when, seemingly, at rest)

engendering respect

showing not telling

Clearly, the above list is not exhaustive, but, perhaps, it isn’t a bad start.

Much Love Maggie the mum and Mark the dad
