Just a Mom


1There’s much more to it than that.

In the world today, people ask, “What do you do?” When I respond by saying I am a stay-at-home mom, the reaction is typically, “You’re just a mom.” This statement in nowhere near describes what being a stay-at-home mom entails.

First of all, home is a child’s first classroom. Being at home with my kids, I am my children’s first teacher. I prepared them for their first day of Kindergarten. Mom taught them ABCs and 123s. I taught them manners and respect for others. They learned to say please and thank you, and to have respect for adults. As a parent, I shape the minds of my children in order for them to become successful members of society. When they attend school, we still continue teaching as their tutor.
