1. “No candy today”
Sweets and treats galore,
But not today, my dear.
You’ve had enough sugar,
Now give your teeth a break, here.
2. “Clean your room”
Toys strewn about,
Clothes on the floor,
It’s time to tidy up,
Or there’ll be no playtime anymore.
3. “Do your chores”
Dishes to wash,
Laundry to fold,
Don’t forget to vacuum,
Or you’ll be scolded, bold.
4. “Homework first”
Video games, too,
But your studies come first,
Or your grades will surely rue.
I am the mean mom, hear me roar
I won’t let you off easy, that’s for sure
Your whines and pleas fall on deaf ears
I won’t back down, no matter your tears
I set rules and boundaries, to keep you safe
To guide you through life with grace
You may think I’m unfair and cruel
But my tough love is a powerful tool
I want you to grow strong and wise
To navigate life’s twists and surprise
So I’ll push you, challenge you, make you see
You’re capable of more than you believe
So listen up, my dear child of mine
I’m not here to just be kind
I’m here to help you reach your potential
And that may require some tough love, unconventional
No excuses, my child, no excuses at all
I won’t let you settle for less, stand tall
You have the power within you, don’t you see?
To succeed in this world, to be all you can be
Don’t blame others, don’t whine or complain
Take responsibility, strive to maintain
A determination to excel, to work hard
And you’ll find your dreams become your reward
I won’t accept mediocre or half-hearted tries
You have the ability to soar to the skies
So don’t hold back, don’t give up or surrender
You’re capable of more than you remember
No excuses, my child, no excuses at all
I’ll be your champion, your cheerleader, your call
To take on each challenge with strength and might
And emerge victorious in every fight.
You never let me do the things I want to do,
You make me eat my veggies and force me to chew.
You always say no, never a yes,
Making life miserable with all your rules and stress.
You make me clean my room and do my chores,
No time for myself, not a minute for tours.
I always have to study and learn,
No fun and games, just yearning and burn.
When I want to go out and play,
You just say no and make me stay.
When I want to hang with friends,
You always find some reason to not make amends.
You scream and yell when I don’t obey,
And make me feel bad in every way.
I hate it when you call me names,
And I never know who to blame.
But I know deep down inside,
You just want what’s best and want to guide.
You only want to keep me safe,
And make sure I don’t make any mistakes.
So even though I call you mean,
I know it comes from love unseen.
Thank you for everything you do,
And for always being there too.
The Iron Fist of Motherhood
Listen up, children, and hear my tale
Of a mom who’s not afraid to wield the veil
Of discipline, order, and tough love
For her mission is to raise you up
You might think she’s mean, harsh or cruel
But she just knows every rule
Of what it takes to run a home
And raise kids who can stand alone
She’ll make you do your homework first
And limit time with screens and bursts
She’ll serve you veggies on a plate
And make you clean up your own crate
She won’t let you stay up all night
Or skip breakfast, no matter how light
She’ll insist on manners and respect
Especially when you might object
She’ll teach you how to do your chores
And show you how to sweep the floors
She’ll model kindness, empathy, and care
And help you learn to love and share
You may not see it now, my dears
But one day you’ll shed those tears
Of gratitude, pride, and awe
For this mom who stood against the flaw
Of laziness, ignorance, and apathy
And pushed you towards clarity and proficiency
For she knows that life can be tough
And thus wants to equip you with enough
To handle challenges and find your way
To be successful, happy, and okay
So don’t resent this mom, my friends
But thank her for the lessons she extends
Of strength, resilience, and accountability
Of standing tall against adversity
For one day you’ll thank her, yes indeed
For the iron fist of motherhood you need.
