Now don't get me wrong. I think it's wonderful for women to be able to stay home with their kids. It's important. I was raised by my grandmother, who was retired and home all the time. I was at home for 6 months with my first and I currently work part time. However, I do see something wrong if a SAHM does not have any prior job experience or a college education. It is so important for women to establish themselves in a career first, become financially independent, prior to becoming a wife and SAHM. Why be dependent on a man? I see so many young girls in our area who get married at 18 and have babies at 19, stay home, and have no way to support themselves when the man leaves. It's so sad. It's also important for a prior career woman to keep up with her skills while being a SAHM. You may eventually need to head back to work. Just had to vent this!
I am a SAHM I have work experience and college dipolma. by the time i go back to work. 2018ish.... my schooling will be outdated. But I will def. have the work experience granted it will have been 10 years of SAH. eeeh what can ya do
It's worked opposite for us. I was home 7 years and now I am pursueing my dreams. It's worked well for us and I am extremely happy that I was able to give that to my kids. I don't think I would have stayed home if I had an established career before kids.
