Definition of "Motherhood Statement"

I do not know how many of you get yourself in a situation where you are presenting a project or some idea that you have conceptualised. You start with the scope before going on to detail on the aims and objectives. Normally the audience will be made up of your superiors. Having eaten more salt than you have eaten rice (I hope they die from hypertension or something), they dissect your presentation and ideas. They tell you that you're making motherhood statements they don't amount to anything at all.

Here is an example:

"If we can give our teachers the room, the space, the environment in which they can spend time inspiring the students, leaving a little bit of themselves behind, then I think we would have gone so way further in wanting to develop this first-class education system."

I showed it to a teacher friend. And she said she don't understand the statement as it was too cheem. And she's the supposed target audience.

I told her she'd given a very profound insight. Profound in that she had penetrated beyond the superficial or obvious.
