Why I Started This Blog

In the past, women didn't have a choice to work outside of their home, nor did they have part in the politics and other aspects of public life. I didn't start this blog to crticize women who choose to be out in the workforce, or to imply in any way that they are not "good" mothers because of doing so.

I started this blog to promote more tolerance and understanding toward women who choose to stay at home with their children; who are often criticized by the media and well meaning femenist activists for their choice. Some of the critics even implied that to stay at home with children is equal to wasting one's personal potential and intelect, thus sparking so called "Mommy Wars".

In my opinion, every woman has a right to make her own desicion, and shouldn't be looked down upon or dictated to by anyone. I will share here my thoughts on this divisive subject and want to invite all of you to join in and share your thoughts as well.

And I do hope that our sharing here will eventually cease unnecessary and many times unjust conflicts between women and mothers who all want the very best for themselves, their families, and their children.
