It is more rigorous than a nine-to-five job, there aren't any bonuses, no monthly paycheques and certainly no promotions. And yet full-time homemaking is one of the most popular "job" choices today.
The saying goes: "With every baby that is born, a mother is born too." Motherhood transforms a woman for life. Imagine this scenario — two households with their respective mothers, who wake up early to pack lunches for the children while preparing breakfast for the family and ensuring that everyone leaves home for work or school on time. The only difference is that one mother then leaves for her own workplace, outside of the home and the other one stays home to "work".
While some give up time with their children to give them a bright future and a career for herself, others forsake their careers to spend the present with their children.
For those who have invested years of study and have had successful careers before the children came along, staying home could seem tedious. Then there are some who find joy in being completely hands-on at home.
Many might argue that women of our generation are more career-driven and feel the need for a life of their own. But is it really true and has a lot changed since our mothers' time? Unwind decided to meet a few young mothers to find out what they believed.

You are very right about the decision being different for everyone. I too chose to stay at home with my two girls. They are now in college and doing wonderfully. I could not be more proud. Spending time with are young children can not be replaced.

Its definitely a balancing act weather you are a stay at home mom or not. I chose to leave my career and be home with my child. Part of the reason I think I did this was having a horrible motherless childhood and having it take a long time to conceive. I didn't really want someone else seeing my child's first steps are seeing their first smile....etc. I'm the mom, I should have those memories. They shouldn't be wasted on someone else who wouldn't have the same sentiments. But with that being said I know there are career moms who enjoy being career moms and its great for them and their families. So I say to each their own as long as we are loving, feeding and providing for our children then that is all that matters.
