Women, at some point or another, whether it is by societal pressures or their own families, are forced to think about their biological clock. A time comes when they feel the need to define their identity as a woman, sadly, often this identity is set by the ability to bear children. At first glance it may seem that the mothers are the children’s shield, protecting them from the world and evil. But it is in reality a symbiotic relationship, the mother acts as the child’s shield, and in return, the child acts as the social shield for the mother. Many women get to a certain age where they don’t know what to do next, and in some cases this void (dictated by society) is filled by this shield; the child saves them from becoming worthless in the eyes of others.
