May Mask, mother of Elon Musk, a famous model and expert in raising "geniuses".
The 72-year-old was able to achieve her personal glory and raise three successful children on her own, including Elon Musk, the most famous billionaire in the world, so how did she do that?
Long before the world was fascinated by billionaire Elon Musk, his mother, May Musk, was a famous star in the world of fashion, fashion and healthy nutrition, and millions had taken her as a role model in raising the children of leaders who swept the world in many fields.
The 72-year-old was able to achieve her personal glory and raise 3 successful children on her own. They are billionaire Elon Musk, CEO of the electric car company Tesla, and the owner of "Space X" spacecraft, while his brother Kimball owns a famous chain of restaurants, and their sister Tosca is a successful filmmaker.
May Musk was born in Saskatchewan, Canada in 1948, and is one of five siblings. She moved with her family to Pretoria, South Africa in 1950. At the age of 22, she married her high school boyfriend, but after 9 years of marriage, the two separated. May Musk raised her three children alone.
To provide for the needs of her children, the mother worked as a dietitian to help patients suffering from diabetes and high cholesterol and as the first model in South Africa, where she appeared in the largest magazines including Vogue and Cosmopolitan, and her white-haired pictures are still in the top of the most famous international magazines to this day.
Musk, 72, has released a book that recounts her career and her way of raising successful children, titled Women Make a Plan: Advice for a Lifetime of Adventure, Beauty and Success. A Woman Makes a Plan: Advice for a Lifetime of Adventure, Beauty, and Success.
Musk says in her book: “I raised my children as I was raised, I was independent and serious about my work, I did not treat them like children and did not scold them. I never asked them to review their lessons..I did not check their homework, which is their responsibility. Responsibility early.
"When they went to university, they were living in very bad conditions. They slept on a mattress on the floor of a dilapidated house and shared rooms with their classmates, but that didn't bother them. If your kids are not used to the luxuries, they live well. You don't have to spoil them..Let them." They take care of themselves.
I am proud of my kids, my eldest son, Elon builds electric cars to save the environment and launches rockets. My child Kimball has opened farm-to-table restaurants and builds fruit and vegetable gardens in underprivileged schools. My daughter Tosca runs an entertainment company that produces and directs best-selling films.
