Motherly is an adjective. It is a heavenly feeling rare to be found or seen in other relations. This motherly feeling takes a mother to such an arena where complexities of feelings never prevail. The sacredness a mother possesses is so natural that makes everyone to be ever respectful to them.
By the way, it's not that they treat their own children affectionately, they are kind-hearted to all .
