The Value of a Mother ---

A mother laughs our laughter and sheds our tears
A mother fears our fears and lives our joys
All of our cares, hopes and dreams
our mother shares
-author unknown

This Mother’s Day marks the 100th anniversary of mother’s day. For centuries, however, it’s mothers who have been the care givers working hard to support the family in immeasurable ways. As we search for the best gifts and best ways to express gratitude to our mothers, can we truly place a value a mother holds in a household?

There are some things we don’t want to consider when we think about our loved ones, such as what we would do without them. Until we are without them, these things don’t come to mind. Considering what could be in the event of such as loss is something many of us avoid discussing even though we should be.
The value of a mother is priceless, and hard to place a financial figure with. She is a chauffeur, a chef, a housekeeper, a tutor, and so much more. In 2013, MSN compiled a chart based on the expenses required if one were to pay for the tasks of a mother. The value of $62,000 per year was based on occupational wages from the Bureau of Wage Statistics, and this does not include any income the mother may be providing in addition to her motherly duties. If you are in a dual income household, the mother of the household could extend above a $100,000 per year value. Most families cannot afford to replace that financial loss on a yearly basis. Unfortunately, most families are also either under insured or not insured at all in the event of such a terrible loss. To calculate an amount of life insurance needed to prepare for such an event, consider all that a parent does for a family and how much it would cost to replace what that parent provides. The solution is to invest in life insurance to protect your family!



Mothers tend to be underinsured. Married couples are less likely to buy individual coverages, and most single mothers have not even considered life insurance. Calculating how much life insurance to purchase depends on a family’s circumstances. Aside from the painful expenses of medical bills and funeral costs, we must also consider her household duties, the income she brings to the household, household bills including mortgages, childrens’ education and so much more.
