As a young girl I admired my mother for a lot of things, but majorly for deciding to do nothing but take care of us. I appreciated the fact that nothing was as important to her as her five lovely kids. To me, that was truly a priceless gift to give. Unlike me, my mom was a full house wife. Meaning she did nothing at all, which was the most detrimental part of the beautiful decision she took, funny how I didn’t understand this till I was well advanced in age.
A stay home mom is a woman who decides to be her own boss in order to have control over her time, for the sole purpose of raising her kids as desired, while a full house wife is a woman who does nothing except take care of her home and kids. Being a full house wife is mostly instigated by the man in the relationship, sometimes the wife gets paid and in some situations she doesn’t.
My decision to be a stay home mom was as a result of
- The generational challenge with 21st century kids (the abuse, neglect and extreme exposure to internet)
- The success my mom had with raising us, I would like to say she did a great job
- Mychildhood experiences,educational background and the picture of the life I will like to live. I will explain this further as we go on with this series.
However, as much as being a stay home mom might be your decision as a wife or a mother. The success or ease of it is largely dependent on the support you get from your spouse or partner. This is a decision that will most likely change formation and structure as you have more kids and also as they grow. In the next article, I will be talk about things needed to be put into consideration when planning on being a stay home mom.
