Although the world habits dangers of violence and gore,
a young child's task is mostly to play
and to explore.

The job of a mother involves knowing when to hold your child back from the dangers of the world, and making sure the child can handle himself when he becomes too old for you to keep him.

+ Use the mouse to control the mother.
+ You can keep your tiny child near your home protecting him from danger.
+ Letting your child explore alone allows him to gain experience and eventually be able to handle himself.

My son was 23. And died. I must had been a crappy mother.
I got "Momma's boy" medal, so maybe I haven't prepared him for life well? But he died anyway, so maybe I was right?
Because I'm thinking about it now, it's a damn good art game.

I love this game a lot and I replay it often. I just have to ask. Is 'Motherhood' supposed to be a medal or just the ending because I've finished this game a couple of times and 'Motherhood' never shows up as a medal.

I didn't play this for the graphics, or the gameplay, or even the storyline. I expected this to be more of an action-oriented game, about reclaiming your lost child or something, but instead, I got an awesome metaphor for life. The realism in trying to protect your child from the wiles of the world, as well as the feeling of awe and loneliness as your teenager steps out into the world, now much faster and stronger than you, honestly tugged my heart strings. I wanted to tell him to be careful, what was good, what was bad, basically guide him. But he wouldn't stop for me, wouldn't even acknowledge me, and it made me realize the pain and fear that all mothers feel.

You're a God among flash game developers. I wish half of the people on this site who make games could simulate love and sorrow as well as this game did. My hat's off.

A bear killed my 7 years old son... Wonderful. There should be a "DonĀ“t move, you are grounded" option.
