“…and forsake not your mother’s teaching.”

mom.sonProverbs 6:20-23 My son, keep your father’s commandment, and forsake not your mother’s teachingBind them on your heart always; tie them around your neck.  When you walk, theywill lead you; when you lie down, they will watch over you; and when you awake, they will talk with you.  For the commandment is a lamp and the teaching a light, and the reproofs of discipline are the way of life,

In Proverbs up until now, usually only the father is mentioned. As a mother, I am grateful that moms are mentioned here as a  teacher here and in chapter 1 verse 8.  Young men need their fathers AND their mothers!
