The mortal women in Homer's "Iliad" were mostly known for being faithful wives and very giving mothers. These women care for their children, such as Odysseus's mother did, when he was in great need of confidence and reassurance.

I believe there are three aspects to teaching; touching the mind (mental), the heart (emotional), and the hands (physical).
