The stay-at-home mom supports and cares for her husband and their children. The primary caregiver to the children, she is largely responsible for their emotional, physical, spiritual, mental, and educational welfare.
She is also responsible to her partner, to be a partner to him and to handle things in his absence in ways that are not contrary to his own beliefs and feelings. This woman continually has to be mindful of not only being respectful of him, but in teaching their children, through her own example, to be respectful of him and his role.
The Working Wife and Mother
This woman has the additional task of bringing income into the home. On top of juggling all her others duties as wife and mother, this woman also has to juggle employment as well. Time management and not getting stressed out over the additional work are crucial to this woman's emotional and physical well-being.
More heavily reliant upon her spouse for help and support than the stay-at-home mom, this woman is at the mercy of her spouse to help her not quickly burnout with all her additional workload.
