As mothers, it's in our instinct to provide all the best things for our little ones, especially basic needs like food, clothing, and shelter. But other than basic needs, we wish that our children can become the best version of themselves in the future so that they can contribute well to their family and the society in general.
One of the things my mom would always push me to do well in is my studies - and no, she's not the type of mom that would freak out if I got a B+ or below on one of my tests. Whenever exam week starts she would always set a prize for each time I got an A- or above. I remember it being at $10/exam, so you could imagine how focused I was during those times. Back then she would mention that she was doing that because people who do well get rewarded accordingly - but the 12-year-old me couldn't grasp that idea well, after all, I just wanted to buy toys and candy with the money I got from my exams.
Today, it seems harder to get children to study, especially when a lot of them are glued to a phone, television, or even the computer.

Knowing that our little one's body and mind is as optimal as possible is one of the greatest feelings in the world. A sharper brain in your child's formative years gives them an advantage early on in life which makes it easier for your baby to grow up and accelerate ahead in class. In turn, graduating from school with great accomplishments will also help your future grown-up to land a job that can propel their career further in life. As a mother, wouldn’t that be the best gift you can give to your child, the gift of intelligence?
