What to Write in Your Mom's Mothers' Day Card Based on Her DISC Style
You've finally found the perfect Mother's Day gift, but you still need to get her a card. The greeting card companies may do a great job with the design and standard greeting text, but what are you going to write on the inside of the card? You can't just sign your name or write "Happy Mother's Day" to the woman who brought you life! Read ahead to help you craft the perfect message for your mom based on her DISC personality style.
The Dominant Mom
The Dominant mom is always busy, and she knows how to take charge. If you have a "D" style mom, you were more afraid of her disciplinary style than anyone else's. Her dominance reigned. "D" moms are active and task-oriented. Their communication style is direct and to the point. They seem to take their job as your mother very seriously, and they don't like it when you question their authority. This mom might have enjoyed the phrase, "Because I said so, that's why!" Your mom was protective of you, and she had high expectations for your behavior and accomplishments. Because you turned out so well, she's proud of the job she did in raising you because she knows you know how to get things done.
Mother's Day Card Message for the "D" style Mom:
"Dear Mom- Thanks for raising me to be the man/woman that I am. I couldn't have accomplished all that I have without your support and guidance. Thank you for showing me how to be strong and make decisions effortlessly. I can realize my dreams because of you. Love you."
Why your "D" personality type mom will like this message: It shows that she taught you how to accomplish your goals and be strong, and it gives her some credit for getting you to this point.
The Inspiring Mom
The Inspiring mom wants to have fun and be your best friend. Popular with your peers, she always knows how to make you laugh and what to say to encourage you. The "I" style mom is fast-paced and spontaneous. She is social and creative, and maybe just a little bit flighty. "I" moms always want to talk about a problem when it comes up because they dislike when there is tension in the house.
Mother's Day Card Message for the "I" style Mom:
Pick a card that is funny or creative, and beautiful (like a pop-up card or one that plays music.) Bonus points if it refers to some inside joke between you and her.
"Hey (insert the cute nickname you have for your mom here)! Happy Mother's Day to the coolest mom there is! Thanks for being my best friend and my inspiration. You always know exactly what to say, and I love you! From: (the cute nickname she has for you)"
Why your "I" personality type mom will like this message: It shows that you appreciate her for the traits that she likes most about herself - her ability to inspire and the fact that she's a great friend with a sense of humor.
The Steady Mom
The Steady mom is the most self-sacrificing. She sees her primary role as part of an unbreakable bond - the bond between mother and child. The "S" mom seeks security and is very protective and possessive of you. Because you will always be her baby, and she will never stop worrying about you. Her whole identity revolves around the fact that she is a mom. She is people-oriented and family-oriented, and she appreciates traditions. "S" moms are very nurturing. She probably always made sure you (and your friends) were well-fed, well-rested, and ready for the day. She took good care of you, and it seems like it is her favorite accomplishment.
Mother's Day Card Message for the "S" style Mom:
"Thank you for everything that you have done for me, for all of your sacrifices, and for making it known that you will always be there for me. I love you with my whole heart, and I will always be there for you. I'll always be your baby. Love, (your childhood nickname here)"
Why your "S" personality type mom will like this message: She desires security, so she will likely love hearing that you're never going to abandon her and that you will always be her baby. She also wants to be appreciated for everything she's done for you, though she'd never ask you to tell her that.
The Conscientious Mom
The Conscientious mom is a mom who plays by the rules. Before she had you, she did all the research on how to feed you, potty train you, encourage your language development, and you name it. She does the research and rarely shoots from the hip.
The "C" style mom kept organized calendars for all of your activities and made you stick to routines, and placed high expectations on your work and behavior. The "C" mom is slow to act, contemplative, and a bit of a perfectionist. She may have kept your house very clean. This mom is the very last mom to flake on you. She takes her responsibilities seriously. Conscientious moms are not very flexible and ask questions about everything. You may have resented that as a teen, but when you grew up you realized how her firm boundaries and rigid routines trained you to become the practical, wonderful, self-disciplined person you are. Thanks, mom.
Mother's Day Card Message for the "C" style Mom:
"Happy Mother's Day! Thank you for raising me and for taking such good care of me. You are a wonderful person, and I've always admired your integrity. I am so lucky to have such a kind, nurturing, smart, and caring mother. I wouldn't be who I am without you. Thank you for being just perfect."
Why your "C" personality type mom will like this message: "C" style moms are very humble. Any card message praising her will probably make her a little embarrassed, but she will sincerely appreciate being recognized for a job well done. She may have been critical of her parenting skills, so hearing that she did a perfect job will make her day.
If you're not sure what personality style your mom is, give her the gift of knowledge with a DISC assessment.
