Over the years from 1997 up to the year 2014, the number of stay-at-home moms declined!

Isn’t it ironic that the stay-at-home Moms declined and those stay-at-home fathers rise up!


I mean usually kasi diba, ang mga ama ang wala sa bahay at laging nanay ang naiiwan.


that’s how our culture and life works as a mother,


but that is before!


So the big question is, what happens to those number of Moms who are already not a “stay-at-home mother” san na sila napunta?


 Well, one of the answers is that they are probably working!


According to the “working Mother statistics” of Statistics Brain, 61% of moms work out of their home and in the country of Sweden, there are 76% of working Moms, same us in united states with 61%  if working Moms.


Another example, the pie graph below shows the percentage of working moms increasing over the year of 1997 and 2012. The graph is from the PewResearch Center Social and Demographic Trends. 


And I know, here in our country, the Philippines we also have a large number of working moms.


So in this kind of dilemma of us being a mother and a worker at the same time, what may be the reason behind this?


I mean, of course, we do love our family! th

ere's no question on that but there must be reasons for us to take the risk of working while being a mother to our family.


And one of the main reason is that we the mothers, want to provide for our family!


Well yes, maybe that work is for our husband or our partner in life, but still, there are times that we needed to help them provide cause maybe our family needs more, and a one person to provide is not enough.


Just like me and my husband, he is working in Dubai for years and I am here in the Philippines with our children doing some business to provide our needs.


My husband can provide for us, but the thing is aside from only helping him I also want to work for my passion, for my satisfaction,


and that is also one of the reasons why we became working Moms.


because we need to be satisfied, hindi naman sa hindi tayo kontento sa pagiging Ina,


but I believe naman na we always have that fire in our hearts that desire working on our passion.


And that my dear, is what drives us to be a working Mom.



So, as we can see, the number of working Moms increase over time than the stay-at-home Moms, well, of course, we all know naman that there are benefits din if you are a stay-at-home Mom, you can focus more on your family, you can take care of them so much more than a working Moms can do.


But still being a working Mom also helps a mother provide for their family needs and explore on their working fields. Pero syempre it still depends on the situation of the mothers themselves, it will depend on their decision and perception in which they can serve better as a Mommy.


After all, what matters the most naman is that you are still a Mother.


Either a working mom, stay-at-home Mom or whatever! 


Still, you are a Mom, that’s what still counts at the end of the day! right?
