Bachelor of Arts in Motherhood

We often hear it said that being a mother is the most important job in the world. Isn’t it strange that there is no training or course of study offered to women for this most prestigious of jobs? If you were fortunate you learned from a good role model, someone in your life, a mother, grandmother, aunt or friend. Probably no amount of training could really prepare us for this journey that is motherhood. If I were to develop a college degree for women to pursue, its courses would look like this.
