Working Women Make Better Mothers

For the Statement

Becoming a mother is a life changing experience. Soon after having children many women are faced with a very difficult question. Should I return to work, or become a stay at home mom?

But those women who choose career become better mothers than ‘a stay at home mom’. The children of working mothers become smart and active as compared to the children of non-working mothers. This is because of the fact that the mother being working have to move out of the house leaving all the household chores intact, the children behind, understand their responsibilities and manage to do all their tasks without being dependent on others. The other reason is that, the working mothers are now-a-days helped by their spouses with household chores. By seeing the fathers helping these mothers, children learn good habits and inculcate good manners. According to a research, a working mother showers more love to her children. When working mothers are back from work, they show all their love and affection to them as these moms get less time to spend with their kids. The mothers when working, become an inspiration for their kids as they look up to them and say that they aspire to be like them in the near future. This way, the children also learn to work hard in their life. Thus, working mothers are far better than the women who stay at home to look after their children.

Against the Statement

I totally disagree with the statement – “Working women make better mothers than women who stay at home.” The mothers, who sacrifice their career for their children, come up to be better mothers than working women. The working women who work for ten hours continuously suffer from fatigue and tiredness which does not allow the mother takes an eye on her kids, and this way, kids are kept aloof for the whole day. Whereas mothers who stay at home spend more time with their children and pay close attention needed to keep their children out of trouble.

Think of housewives as inspectors in your home, they will make sure the food is on the table, children have done their chores/homework/will talk to the kids even when they don’t wanted.

Whereas a busy/working mother will be humming about, worrying about the way she might lose the promotion to her professional nemesis! The children of a working mother, get freedom in excess when they don’t see their mothers around to stop them from vices. This way they may fall into bad company. But children of mothers who stay at home consider their moms as their best friends on whom they can rely. These mothers can be a good role model as running a home is not an easy task. I could not imagine a either role model than that of a loving, capable and devoted mother. Daughters need to know that motherhood is a choice and huge responsibility. Being accountable for one’s choice is a sign of dignity and maturity. Putting children on the back and burning for personal desires, is an injustice. That is why working moms feel bad about leaving their children. Deep down, the truth hurts. The working mothers have to compromise in terms of motherly emotions and miss all the first words, steps and activities of there kids. Whereas mothers who stay at home are enriched with all motherly emotions and get to see the kid’s first walk and listen the kid’s first call out for mom!

Thus, there is no doubt that women who stay at home are obviously better mothers than working mothers.
