A mother is a female parent. If she has children that are not her biological children (e.g. if the is the second wife of her husband, who remarried after his first wife died), she is called their stepmother.
A mother might also be called less formally with words that differ in American English from Queen's English. In American English you might refer to a mother as Mom or the childish Mommy. While in Queen's English you would say Mum or Mummy respectively. Another possible word is Ma, which once was common with "frontier" families in America, and Mama.
- maternal (adjective) - of, pertaining to, having the qualities of, or befitting a mother: maternal instincts.

In Japanese based references, Okaa-(san|sama) or Haha refer to a mother.
Mothers in spanking art
Mothers play an important role in child spanking art because in practice in most families it is the mother's task to discipline the children. This is especially true for younger children.
An example of mother/daughter punishment fiction can be found in the short story collection A Judicial Caning for Mother and Daughter: and Other Spanking Stories by Joy Peters (LSF Publications, 2016).
A stepmother (or step-mother, see also Guardian) is the non-biological mother of children from her husband's previous marriage. The domineering evil stepmother has become a popular stereotypical villain in various forms of fiction, drama, and film – including adult spanking videos.
In corporal punishment videos, the stepmother is usually a strict, sometimes sadistic, practicioner of old-fashioned, over the knee discipline. (See also Aunt videos.) Sometimes she is a more sympathetic character who is justified in giving a delinquent, spoiled, bratty or otherwise misbehaving stepchild a painful "attitude adjustment" via hand, hairbrush, bath brush, paddle, switch, or birch rod.
Adding to the powerless feeling of submission and humiliation, some stories show the child being forced to fetch the punishment implement(s) or going outdoors to cut a tree branch to be used as a switch. Bad language or backtalk may also be remedied by a bar of soap (mouthsoaping, a fetish category in itself). All of these practices are based on what were once commonplace methods used in parenting in earlier times.
A few video titles depict stepmothers getting punished as in Disrespectful Stepmother (Triple A Spanking) and two turnabout titles, both called Step Daughter's Revenge released by Spanked Cheeks and Dropseat Productions (Bobbie's DropSeats).
Ageplay videos and legal issues
Due to strict laws enacted in 1990 to prevent the exploitation of minors in adult-themed videos, children are portrayed by adult actors dressed in juvenile costumes (school uniforms, frilly dresses, dropseat pajamas, etc.) and punished in a kid's bedroom decorated with stuffed animals, toys, a teddy bear, and so on. To avoid any ambiguity, some producers include dialog indicating the "child" is at least 18 years old (and often complaining about being "too old for a spanking"). Titles catering to specific ageplay and power exchange fantasies show adult spankees forced to wear childish or infant clothing (including diapers, pacifiers, etc.) to ramp up the humiliation aspect of the punishment session.
Ageplay videos from Momma Spankings, for example, with women pretending to be young girls include: Mommy's Spanked Schoolgirl, The Bad Little Girl, Little Misbehaving Alice, My Bratty Daughter, Miss Kane's School of Manners, Little Kajira's Spanking, Little Sarah's Spanking, and Slutty Daughter Spanked and Diapered (photos).
Taken to School (Chelsea Pfeiffer Entertainment), depicts Chelsea Pfeiffer forcing adult daughter-in-law Stevie Rose to wear a schoolgirl uniform to further humiliate her during her spanking sessions.
