stay at home mother - quotes and descriptions to inspire creative writing
My mother stayed home to care for us, and we had the greatest childhood imaginable. What irks me though is when people say she didn't "work." And that's not just because she worked hard every day caring for us, it's that the words themselves suggest she was in some way broken or defective. Perhaps an old radio doesn't work, or some electronic gadget that got all wet... but my mom, she worked better than most folks. By making all those loving choices every day, by showing self control when your average office worker would lose their cool, she built a truly better brain. My mom is smart, funny, loving, self controlled and responsible. Frankly, for those who can't do all that, irrespective of your employment status, can you say that you really work?
The stay at home mother works for love. She is a nurturer, a nurse, a psychologist, a chef, a sports coach, an educator, a personal assistant, a cleaner... what she does is priceless, not only for her child, but for all of society. When the individual is broken there can be no relationships, no functioning society at all. So perhaps its time to really raise the status of mothers and give them the time, practical support and emotional support they need to do their job right... the future of humanity could well depend on us doing just that.
