Working Moms may bring in extra income, but there is another cost.
Are you willing to pay it?
The popular sayings, “everything comes at a cost” and “life is a trade-off” are true in virtually every sense. This includes the costs and trade-offs we make when both parents choose to work outside the home during our kids’ formative years. These would be the years from birth to 5 years old.
I know that for some of us two working parents in a must, but for others it is not. So, although it is not popular we must acknowledge that most of us don’t understand all that is forfeited developmentally, relationally, and spiritually with respect to our kids and family dynamics when mom opts not to delay her career during junior’s formative years. If we did I am sure that most of us would choose the benefits of full-time motherhood. It would not be time wasted.
