How much would mom be paid?
The article below shows us the value of our parents and how much they do for us just for household duties as parents. It should make us ponder; to what extent shouldn’t we keep them happy and not hurt them in any way. In respecting them (in lawful acts) lies our salvation in both worlds.
The following article excludes the cost of our education and the other things they do for us in monetary terms. In short, our parents are priceless treasures. We should appreciate them.
