Retirement Resources President, Dave Boike, Praises All Mothers And The Important Role They Play In Shaping Their Family’s Values.

In honor of Mother’s Day, Retirement Resources President and Investment Advisor, Dave Boike addresses the role his own mother played in shaping his values and the role his wife plays in shaping their children’s values as a tribute to all mothers.
Auburn Hills, MI — May 10, 2021—Dave Boike, President of Retirement Resources and co-author of The Ultimate Success Guide with Brian Tracy, published a new article on the company website entitled, The Important Role Mothers Play In Teaching Family Values,” in which Mr. Boike quotes Abraham Lincoln who said, “All that I am or ever hope to be, I owe to my angel mother.”
Boike writes, “While mothers are typically the glue that holds a family together, today motherhood looks different than it has in days gone by.” He continues adding, “Despite the way society has evolved to include single mothers, women who hold powerful positions in huge corporations, and other non-traditional mother figures, family values are still family values. And, while they are taught through example, the mother figure of the family often spends more time with children and is, therefore, a greater influence in shaping a child’s day-to-day behavior through family values.”
“You may wonder,” says Boike, “what exactly do I mean by “family values?” To me,” he adds, “family values embody one’s ideas about how you want your family to live. What kind of behavior do you value as an individual and want to pass along to your children? Traditionally, family values have been passed down from one generation to the next. For instance, what religion your family practices is considered a family value. “
According to Boike, “My mother was truly responsible for teaching her children her cherished values. Like Abraham Lincoln,” he states, “I can honestly say that I owe my mother a debt of gratitude for teaching me what I consider to be exceptional values. I am who I am today because of my mother’s influence. Likewise, my wife, the mother of my children, had strong family values which she passed on to our children. Fortunately, my wife and I came from families with similar values.”
As Boike points out, “Whether your family is traditional or modern, family values help define behavior in various situations throughout life. As children grow, defined family values help youngsters make conscientious choices.”
