by Lori Alexander of Always Learning – Career Women Lead to Wasteful Living
Editor’s note: By whose standards are working women leading wasteful lives? Quite the contrary, women in the workforce are doing some very important things. There are women doctors, lawyers and in all segments of the working world making things just a little bit better for everyone, including easing the onus financial burden placed on the under educated husbands in evangelical Christianity. Some women aren’t gifted in the areas of hearth and home and that’s perfectly fine. Not everyone needs to stay home to find fulfillment and do themselves and their families a disservice when forced into a role they are ill-suited for. Isn’t this one of the good things to come out of feminism is that every woman gets to determine if she will stay home or work? What about those mothers that do both, work part time and take care of their children? All her words in this article are dripping with white Christian privilege.
When a woman works outside of the home, she has no time to garden, hang up clothing outside to dry, make her own non-toxic cleaners, clean her windows and home, find the best prices, go to garage sales, nurse her baby full-time, use cloth diapers, learn to sew, cut and color hair, and a multitude of other things full-time wives and mothers are able to do.Our government wants to spend more money on daycare so mothers can leave their homes and work. They are very good at wasting other people’s money. They have no wisdom. It is much less money to encourage mothers to learn to live within the money their husband makes and live frugally.Working at home full-time is not only healthier for the family, it is healthier for the women in every way. If you are working full-time, keep track of all of your expenses for a month. Subtract that from what you make plus the taxes that are taken out and you will probably find out it is better to learn to live frugally and within your husband’s income than have a job outside of your home. After all, a penny saved is better than a penny earned for a mother since your children need you way more than any job needs you.
