When You Need One, You Can Rent a Mom

It is not close to Mother’s Day, yet we are going to discuss how important mothers are to all of us. Fathers are important too, but a mother’s role in the family and for her children is unique and special. In many cases she is caring, understanding, nurturing, wise, and loving — to name just a few characteristics she possesses. Unfortunately, not everyone had this type of a mom, and not everyone has a mom who is still living. For these people and for anyone wanting a little more interaction with “Mom,” there is a service you can use to Rent a Mom.

It may seem a little odd, but circumstances may make it useful to rent a mom. Fortunately, our mom is still walking this earth, and we are able to see and talk to her often. Her busy schedule and our busy schedule plus the physical distance between our cities means that we don’t do dinner together every Sunday night, but we wish we could! When we are together or through phone conversations we do ask for advice and feel grateful when she shares some pieces of wisdom.

In our society, the elderly are not valued as highly as in other cultures. This service appeals to those who do value the aged and specifically those who have performed in a motherly role. Sometimes we need some advice, encouragement, or a listening ear. Renting a mom may be a great choice to get that input, as she is unbiased and able to hear without past experience coloring her feedback. Sometimes we just need that motherly love, and if unable to get it from our real mother, why not get it from someone who is willing to provide it?

Renting a mom may seem strange, but the need exists, and at $40 per hour her schedule is filling. (Renting a kid would be more odd.) One rent-a-mom business started in Brooklyn. Another service exists in Cleveland. If there is a need, fill it. Rent-a-mom is doing just that. Great marketing.
