There are normal stages in the life of a housewife: At the beginning, the euphoria, we taste with relief the lack of time constraints, the boss is no longer on our backs to put pressure on us. We are delighted to be at home, making meals; decorate, to pamper our household. Then comes the time or it starts to get pretty boring and routine, we begin to find a long time, does not “see the world” to be stuck between four walls of changing diapers and preparing bottles.

Here feminist roar and wave the right to independence. Each made his choice. When you live in a balanced Christian home with a father and mother and officials present, there is a true love and mutual trust between the spouses, family economy must be regarded as a distribution of tasks and responsibilities the mother and father make a contribution to the family structure, there is no history of domination there. In good economist, I would add that economically speaking, the mother who is raising her children is also creating wealth. If you doubt this, do a numerical value assessment tasks incumbent upon you daily at the rate of an outsider: 3 hours cleaning $ 10, child care, 24 hours at $ 50 3X10 dollars of meal preparation, budget management and secretariat family: $ 15 an hour, etc…
