180 Mom Tag Questions


A commonly held proverb is that God could not be everywhere, and so he created mothers. Mother is indeed the most beautiful and selfless creation of God. She conceives the child, brings the new being into existence, and nurtures the young one till this tiny source of life grows into a mature individual capable of independent existence. The relationship that a mother shares with a child is extremely sensitive and it is mother who facilitates the smooth transition of a young being from the confines of domestic solace to the world outside. The contribution of our mothers in our lives has transcended all forms of expression, and we hold unsurpassed gratitude for all her sacrifices and affection. We cherish the bond that we hold with her and feel fortunate over her existence.

Even as we grow up, we fail to realize that our mother is also a being with a profound untold story held deep inside her heart – the days when she was young, her college days, the days before we entered her life, the early days of our lives with her, the cuddles that we shared with her, and the like. There are many untold tales that relate to our bond with her that has evolved with the passage of time, and many of these tales remain concealed in the veil of the past. We are hardly aware of the sacrifices that she has made during these years to take care of us, and to fulfill her responsibilities as a mother and a homemaker.

Do you wish to fill up this chasm by getting to know your mom better? Well, you can do it now. It is time to nurture and deepen this celebrated relationship with this list of intriguing and engaging questions to be presented to your mother, as listed below.

 

How to play?

 

Firstly, you need to get your mom out of her hectic and tiresome schedule for a while. Help her out with the chores or check-in at a time when she can spare a few hours to play this interesting game with you. When both of you are able to find a match in your respective schedules, go in for the game. It’s a healthy game, where you would shoot a couple of questions at your mom, who would answer them with a bunch of old tales from her memory box. You can even add to the fun by going down the memory lane with a bunch of old photo albums with photographs of the two of you. Here is a long list of reference questions that may help you prolong the game:
