Now, we know that very soon we have to care for our mother in every way, the same way she took care of us. My mom will be fifty soon (she’s still young), but she does have some medical issues which interferes with her housekeeping job and I know pretty soon she will have to stop working.

We are living in a society where in order to survive, two-income households are virtually a necessity, but household chores and child rearing are still considered the woman’s responsibility. Men in society are still expected to work and provide. But what happens after a child is born?

Many people feel a mother should be at home with her child instead of working. Many families’ make the decision for mom to return to the working world due to these reasons’ income, self-esteem of mom, and the relationship with the child.
