Don't parent for the 'thanks' you need to parent for joys.

Bush adds that nobody pays mothers in monetary terms for their amount of time, energy and effort they invest in their children. She also says until one becomes a mother, they will never appreciate just how much their own mom gave and invested to them.

Mothers are the keepers of traditions.
