A homemaker works no less than a mother who works outside the home; in fact, mothers are all the same!

Every woman tries to be an ideal mother, but it is often social prejudices that question a mother's abilities. 

In a world like today, where a woman works to be independent and actively contribute to the economic well-being of the family, homemakers aka "stay-at-home" moms are often seen as less productive members of society.

Although, this notion is far from having any real foundation, nevertheless, this prejudice ends up making some women who do not work outside of the home feel uncomfortable. 

However, the reality is that all moms are essentially the same!

To hear a woman say she is a homemaker or a stay-at-home mom, most people immediately think of the free time she must have and the serenity and tranquility in which her children can be raised, compared to a mother who instead works eight, ten hours a day and who juggles her activities between home, work, family, and children.

But why should a woman who takes care of a household and all of its members almost 24 hours a day, every day, be more relaxed? Is it guaranteed that staying at home provides more serenity? Not really.

Being a homemaker and taking care of the home and children is a real job, with its own burden of stress and responsibility. To be honest, it is a job that is never finished, a shift that never ends.

Therefore, it is not true that a mother who works outside of the home works harder than a mother who is a full-time homemaker. Rather, it is true that mothers are all the same, and it is certainly not a job that makes the difference.

In fact, all mothers love their children more than anything else in the world and, whether they work outside the home or not, they will always try to provide the best for their children. As mothers, it is their concern, their warmth, and love that nourishes their children, not the amount of money they bring home.

There must be no competition between mothers, and no mothers should feel that they have a lower social status and are less important.

Rather, we must fight so that working outside the home or being a full-time homemaker can be a free choice made individually by each woman, and not experienced as a compulsion or an imposition.
