Someone needs to stay home with their children. Women tend to be better nurturing souls than men, but I stayed home for many years and raised one of my daughters. I can not imagine what my life would be like today if my mom had not stayed home and raised me when I and my brother were young. She stayed home with us until we were well into junior high school, and then she only went to work part time as a teacher. Once my brother and I were well along, my mother went back to teaching full time. God has blessed her in a mighty way. She has her health, and even though she is officially retired, her income is far greater than most people that work full time. I know that God has blessed my mom for many reasons, but one of them is love that she showed her children. Please, if someone can stay home, consider doing it. The blessing for you and your children can not even be numbered!
