Summary: Mothers are inseparable from their children. Without children, a mother is not a mother. A mother's love is a selfless love where a mother is prepared to sacrifice everything for their children. At the same time a mother’s love includes discipline and should not just accept anything that a son or daughter does as OK. See below for Biblical advice and scriptures concerning a mother's love.

Mothers, Both New and Old, Are Inseparable From Their Children.
Eve was the first mother. Her name means "life, living, life-spring". She is the mother of all of mankind. Without children, a mother is not a mother.
See Scripture Commentary: Genesis 3:20 tells us that Eve was the mother of all living.
A Mother's Love is a Selfless Love.
A mother's love can never be separated from her children. King Solomon knew this and that a true mother would never agree to her child being harmed.
See Scripture Commentary: 1 Kings 3:26 tells of King Solomon's justice and how a mother was prepared to sacrifice everything for her son.
A Mother’s Love is Sometimes a Hard Love.
It is natural for a mother’s love to be forgiving and not judging. At the same time a mother’s love should not just accept anything that a son or daughter does as OK.
See Scripture Commentary: Proverbs 29:15 advises mothers to instill wisdom in their children by punishment if necessary.
