Honor your mother by understanding her personality!

Sunday, May 10th is Mother’s Day and what would have been my beloved mothers’ 103rd birthday. On the left is a picture of my mother and I wearing our fashionable Mother-Daughter dresses, which my mother designed and sewed. We are standing in our garden in 1948. My mother was 31 years old and I was 3 years old.

I was blessed to have a loving mother-daughter-friend relationship with my mother! Her Yellow/Blue Brain Color Personality complimented my Blue/Yellow Brain Color Personality.

Below are Brain Color Clue to help you recognize your mother’s personality traits and understand your relationship with their mother.

Do you bicker with your Yellow Brain Mother because she always says you should save your money, and be more organized and responsible? Or are glad that your mother pays attention to your behavior and cares about how you handle your money and your life choices?

Does your Blue Brain Mother drive you crazy, because she cannot stop talking about her problems and emotionally requires a lot of attention? Or are you grateful that your mother trusts you and knows you are a good listener and advocate for her?

Are you puzzled when your Green Brain Mother expresses her high expectations, but never talks about or demonstrates her feelings for you? Or are you happy that your mother wants you to achieve success and does not coddle you?

Is your Orange Brain Mother fun to be with, but not someone to count on to be available when you need reliable help or sensible advice? Or are you thrilled that your mother also is your friend and minds her own business and not yours?

Green Brain and Yellow Brain children and their  mothers appreciate one another’s sense of responsibility, prudent and intelligence, while Blue Brain and Orange Brain children and their mothers value each other’s need for creativity, freedom and fun.

Last but not least, watch my WGN TV Mother’s Day Video for tips about mothers’ and children’s Brain Colors. The host really get into discovering each others’ Brain Colors and how they work together. It is very entertaining.

    A really excellent article, Sheila. You emphasize the positive possibilities of this important relationship rather than putting ourselves in opposition to different personality types. Always relevant.

      Dear Ellen, thank you for your comment. I appreciated your focus on the positive possibilities of a relationship. My Blue Brain feels it is important to emphasize the positive attributes and abilities of individuals. Yes, that is always relevant to build healthy relationships, like ours!
