    Could anyone say his idea give their opinion please?
    Thank you in advance
    Is the pro-form in this way correct in the sentence in blue ?
    I noticed this sentence online someone wrote.
    She mothers her plants as she does her children.

    I suggest it is better to write :
    She mothers her plants as she mothers her children.
    OR She mothers both her plants and her children.
    OR for emphasis : She mothers her plant as she does mother her children.
    OR She mothers her plants as she does with her children.
    I think the original sentence is confusing.

    The original is correct, does replaces the verb. Your alternative sentences are also correct, though sometimes heavier.
