Need for MOMS
Having survived being a single parent because of divorce in my life, looking back I can appreciate the struggles that modern moms are facing. I found the best solution for me was to work PART TIME. That wasn't always possible when I was the only wage earner and child support was minimal or non existent. Extended family members can help with child care and other support.
It's still an emotional struggle for working mothers to return to the workforce after the birth of a new infant who is so dependent 24/7 for care. Not to mention the guilt involved in leaving a helpless newborn with a caregiver and returning to the responsibilities involved in any full time job. If there's any possibility of staying home to participate in the raising of this new little person, it's well worth the personal sacrifice of finding your most fulfilling career that can demand your best skills and awarenesses to use them at home.
Children are not an option but a responsibility that is God-given for many purposes: for parents (mom's and dad's) refinement and for society's advancement and progress. If we stop having children or raising them, why are here?
