Stay-at-Home Mom vs. Working Mom
Stay-at-Home Mom vs. Working Mom
04/23/2013

I listened to a parent vent the other day about another parent extolling the virtues of being a stay-at-home-mom. She was upset because she was a working mother and felt she had covered all of her bases and simply didn't agree that being a stay-at-home mom was necessary. I listened with interest because I think it is really important to be home with your kids for a number of reasons.

It didn't occur to me until later that this same mom had previously told me her older child was having sex in their home during high school and engaged in a significant amount of underage drinking as well. Had she been a stay-at-home mom, chances are that never would have happened. Just another reason it is so important to be at home. God bless the parents who make the sacrifices to do so.
