They noted that mothers should always be appreciated and also be showered with love by their children and the entire family.
Despite the huge responsibility of care mothers shoulder in the family ,Mrs Oladimeji and Bamigboye stressed the need for mothers to adequately protect their children against peodophiles that lure children and assault them .
They condemned the trend of things recently where underaged children were victims of rape, urging mothers to be more proactive in shielding their children against all forms of Societal ills.
Another respondent, Mr Dayo said mothers should be appreciated everyday and not on a single day as they remain irreplaceable in the life of every family.
