Stay-at-Home Moms Need Praise!
Stay-at-Home Moms Need Praise!

Hi I'm Dr. Laura Schlessinger and I just published a book called In Praise of Stay-At-Home Moms. Now, there are no arguments, there's no data, there's no research. There's nothing about the argument between working moms and stay-at-home moms. This [book] is all about praising you women who sacrifice to make sure that the person loving your child... paying attention to your child... experiencing a bug walking across the room with your child... being with them the first time they discover their fingers or the first time they have a worry or thought?who is there to help them understand it and face it, enjoy it, have some fun with it, learn from it and be able to grow with it? That's you; an at-home mom.

So how does being an at-home mom benefit your kids? Kids are not inanimate objects. It's not food in one end and clean up the other end. They are growing and developing every day. And they're going to be thinking about what's right and wrong, and friendships and love, and God and morality. And just about every thought a human being could have starts churning around in these little minds, and who do you want to have influence them? Somebody you pay minimum wage? Even a family member?not as good as you. You want to inculcate into your children your way of viewing and loving and enjoying the world with all the commitments that are important to making life have purpose.

You are very important as an at-home mom. It isn't just about &'what's for dessert mom?!& . The book is called In Praise of Stay-At-Home Moms and bless you.

See you next time.
