Email of the Day: Investing in My Family's Future

I was listening to your podcasts, and you were asking listeners to let you know how being a stay-at-home mom has benefited their families. I’ll start off by saying I feel incredibly blessed my husband is able to provide for all of us. I was once a career woman. I dropped all of that for my husband and kids. Now life has rewarded me with the best years I’ve had so far.


I feel being home provides my kids with a very important sense of security and emotional support. I can always tell when I pick them up from school if they had a good or bad day. I can talk to them about it, so we bond now, and it does not become an issue later. We know that being a teen is hard for kids and parents so we strongly believe that being there for your kids now will smooth the teenage years. I take pride in being a stay-at-home mom and doing this seemingly "payless" job, but I ask you, is it really payless? The payment is in the future, when we are old, and our kids are emotionally secure, happy, and functional adults without abandonment issues. Being a stay-at-home mom is the best job in the world!



Best regards,
