Should Mothers Stay At Home? One Woman's Perspective
Thursday, 12 July 2012
Should mothers stay at home or should they go to work? Why not both? Quite honestly, there are many opportunities that can make a stay-at-home mum a working-stay-at-home mum. I'm proof of that.
One of the debates that often comes up when a woman becomes a new mother is, should mothers stay at home or should they enter the workforce? This is something that is often rather heated, with some people on the side of women who should be staying at home with their children and others who say that they should be contributing to the household finances. To be honest, it is difficult to find a family that is able to get by on a single income so it would seem that in the “stay at home mums vs working mums” debate, there is not much room for debate at all. In reality, however, it is possible to do both. And if you do it properly, you will find that you are not only staying at home with your children, you are able to afford your finances easily. How is this possible?
If somebody should happen to ask you, should mothers stay at home or should they go to work, you can answer with saying, why can't they do both? Quite honestly, there are many opportunities that can make a stay-at-home mum a working-stay-at-home mum. When done properly, they will not only be contributing to the finances of the household, but they will also be there to take care of their children on a daily basis. This does require, however, that you find an opportunity for business that is going to allow you to do so properly. It also requires something else that many new mothers are familiar with -- proper scheduling.
There are many opportunities that are available online which can be taken advantage of by a stay-at-home mother. These will allow them to do their work at their own pace and according to their own schedule without having to give up the responsibility and enjoyment of being at home with their children. It is important to note, if you do plan on doing something like this, you are still going to need to work hard with the business. As long as you schedule yourself properly, however, you will find that it certainly is possible.
So, in the debate of stay at home mums vs working mums, there is really no need for you to choose one over the other. You can do both -- staying at home with your children and giving them the advantage of having their mother with them during their tender years while, at the same time, earning money that will help with household expenses. That’s what I do.
