Secrets Of A Jewish Mother

Secrets of a Jewish Mother: Real Advice, Real Stories, Real Love

jewish_mother Are You a Real Jewish Mother?

Despite what you may think, you do not need to be Jewish to be a Jewish mother. Nor do you need to be a parent. Being a Jewish mother means carrying yourself with a certain attitude that is not necessarily confrontational, but always assertive.

But, before you can officially call yourself a Jewish mother, here is our test:

  • Do you ever give up, stop arguing or accept no for an answer?
  • Do you have to know every single thing about every single thing?
  • Are you always right? The corollary to this: Are you ever wrong?
  • Have you ever been asked to talk a little louder? (The correct answer for this would be no.) How about a little softer? (There we go.) Can your cell phone calls be heard in the next county?
  • Do you start your sentences by saying, “This is what you have to do”?
  • Are you or have you produced a lawyer, doctor or investment banker? No? Not yet . . . What about a dentist or an accountant?
