Stay at Home Moms - a Great Article

Good morning!! I just read a really wonderful article on MSN about the "new" stay at home moms and I just had to share it. It profiles today's moms who choose to stay home with their children. It also gives great advice and tips. Here's the link:

The New Stay-at-Home Mom

As a stay at home mom who homeschools, I am very familiar with the challenges as well as the advantages of staying home.
For me, one of the biggest challenges is the stigma. Believe it or not, there are still people out there who turn a nose at women like me. They have no idea what a hard job I have. I have heard comments like "do you sit around watching Oprah?". It's insulting and ignorant to say the least. I'm glad the article The New Stay-at-Home Mom, shows that today's stay at home mom is not a slave to the stove or laundry machine. We are a growing group of women who think it is important to be close to your children especially when they are young. We are also a group of women who work hard whether it's starting a business, blogging, or homeschooling.

The advantage of course is the privilege to be there for every important moment of my child's life. Taking charge of raising our kids instead of pawning them off to strangers. My children love the fact that I homeschool, attend every game or school event and take an active role in their lives.

What are the challenges you face as a stay at home mom? Please share your thoughts.
