Perspectives Series: Should Mothers Work?

I thoroughly believe that a mother may work as well as taking care of her children and providing the best for them in terms of comfort and basic living equipment.

While a mother is caring for her children, earning the income for the family is also a need, in order for the family to stay up and going. This will help the children to stay healthy and have a good immune system as well as a balanced diet and not becoming malnourished. It will also help the child to grow as an individual and do things that they like without finding any difficulty, the child will also want to take on new and exciting opportunities this will help with their cognitive thinking and ability to take and make decisions for them-selves.

I believe that in order for a child’s development to grow they need the income to be living on so that they can afford basic everyday life essentials such as food, this however may be influenced more by the emotional health of the family, how the family feels about the mother’s working, and the quality of child care that is being give to the child by the parent. A child who is emotionally well adjusted, well loved, and well cared for will always thrive regardless of whether the mother works outside the home or stays at home caring for the family.

A mother who successfully manages both an outside job and parenthood provides a role model for her child. This will help the child both in terms of the child’s development and their needs. The child will also look up to the mother and will follow the footsteps as they believe what the mother is doing is correct and they can see that what the mother is doing is helping the family out in many different ways to grow and stay happy.

However, people also think that mothers should not work outside the home. They should stay at home to look after their children. What are your views on this?

I personally believe that a mother has the same rights as the father to be out there earning for the family. And the income earned by both parents should be praised so the children look up to both parents and take notes on what is right.
