A recent finding of the PEW Research Center tells us more mothers are staying home with their children than did at the turn of the century – the last turn of the century – 1999.
In 1999, 23 percent stayed home while in 2012, 29 percent reported being at home.
Interestingly, many Americans - 60 percent -believe children are better off when a parent stays home.
Many factors contribute to a family’s decision to stay home or work: financial necessity, desire to contribute to society through work – and a desire to contribute to society by staying close to home and being a stay-at-home mom.
