essay help – Should mother work outside the home?
i need the notes, or sample essay. thanks!
A mothers opinion:
“Ideally, you would think that that is the best solution for all. When my daughter was born I knew immediately that I would be the one staying home with her. However, I have seen time and time again so many women that just went absolutely stir crazy being a stay at home mom, and in the end her kids suffered too because mom was so unhappy. Once these moms got out and went to work, even if part time, it made a lot of difference in their household.
There are so many different things going on these days also to take into consideration. First, single moms usually do not have a choice. Second, with rising costs on just about everything, some moms just have to work out of necessity to supplement the family income. I know many people say to just cut back on things, but unfortunately that does not always work.
If we are talking about just out of pure choice though, I personally chose to stay at home (well work at home but I was still home), but I won’t knock anyone who decides they need the outside world of work as well.”
But there are some people who find it working out more comfy it actually depends on them
If you are on the negative side:
“You know, I really think that the world went downhill when Moms went to work. I know I’ll be attacked for that, but when I look back at the disintegration of the family unit, it really began back in the 60’s and 70’s when equality was the rage and keeping up with the Jones’ was our priority. Don’t get me wrong, as I am for equality, but at the same time, my mother worked, and I’ve always resented her for that. That’s the hard truth. I wanted that Donna Reed existence. Times are such now that mothers have to work, but I feel sorry for the children. I feel like I lost something. Right or wrong, that’s how I feel. We lost the family unit at that point. Kids lost a place to go home to. Everything changed. “
