• Well, ask yourself if you are willing to give up everything to stay at home and be surrounding by children all day. If that sounds good to you....then go for it. And on a more serious note: -Be kind -Be understanding -Be supportive (no matter what) -Be openminded -Be selfless
  • I don't think you can ever really find out other than trying. There are the obvious things - an alcoholic or druggie is likely to be a bad mum, and someone whose ambition has been to work with small children will probably make a good mum. But the actual arrival of your worn real, actual child can change people completely. People who seemed irresponsible will get their acts together, while those who dreamed of children may find them too stressful, or just overload with panicking with worry. However, given that we descent from an unbroken line of thousands of children whose Mums were good enough, it is a fair bet that most women will be good enough. By the nature of evolution, we are descended from thousands of winners and runners-up in the game of child-rearing.
