Moms run the world. Yes, it’s as simple as that. From the micro to the macro, the moms are making those decisions. But regarding policy decisions, would moms do a better job? I hear a resounding yes! Here are five reasons why.
Moms are selfless
Moms by nature are devoid of ego. Other than trying to have the best cookies at the PTA bake sale, they’re hard-wired to think of themselves last. Moms don’t have ego problems. It’s hard to be an egomaniac when you spend serious time researching what the color of your child’s poop says about their health. Having said that, a mom in charge of the world will make selfless decisions. Rest assured her actions will not be based on what benefits her.
Moms are multitaskers
Moms are not capable of doing one thing at a time. It’s just an occupational hazard. So, in this fast-paced world that demands split-second decision making and having many irons in the fire, I daresay that a mom is uniquely qualified for the role. Moms don’t forget things and they don’t complain about being confused with too much to do. It’s their perpetual reality.
Moms are organized
Running the world takes a firm, organized hand. Those are the only hands that moms have. It’s not possible to raise three kids with varying interests while holding down a full- time job and keeping a husband happy, if you’re not organized. It’s downright heroic.
Moms understand conflict resolution
Tired of the wars? It’s either the oil, or the human rights, or whatever. Guess what? Welcome to a mom’s house. It’s always something. And I guarantee the basis of all wars, domestic and international, is that someone took someone else’s toy without permission. Once again, mom to the rescue! People have no idea the kind of peace agreements that moms negotiate daily without bloodshed.
Moms are tenacious
The biggest qualification is that moms are tenacious. They just don’t give up. Even when the world seems to be going to hell in a hand basket, moms are trudging along, getting the job done.
What are your thoughts? Even if you’re not a mom, you had a mom. I’m sure you also know a terrific mom. All prejudices aside, couldn’t they run the world?
