In my opinion unemployed wife is not so good as people may think. First of all, a woman who stays at home thinks about nothing except cooking, cleaning, washing and so on. Her knowledge is narrowed to these things and become bounded. In the same time a woman who has a job commutes with lot of people, gets information, lerans more about different things, thereby she develops her knowledge about today's world. There is a state that a working woman with her increased knowledge and better understanding can also be a great mother.
Secondly, by being a housewife woman doesn't feel necessity to dress up and look better, because there is no need to go out much and if she need to go out she do it to buy food, pick up kids from school and other cases. Consequently she dresses more practically and comfortable.
What is more, we all know that extra money does not come in, and by having a job woman make contribution to a family budget.

"First of all, a woman who stays at home thinks about nothing except cooking, cleaning, washing and so on. Her knowledge is narrowed to these things and become bounded."

Your first argument is very assumptive, that women who do not work outside. Of the house think of nothing except cooking, cleaning, and washing. I disagree with this statement and I don't believe you could find evidence that those items are the only thing stay at home mom's think about. The strongest argument for me would be that a large percentage of women who stay at home and don't work do so to raise and take care of children. So in addition to the things you mentioned that stay at home women think of, I will add potty training and educating her children.

"In the same time a woman who has a job commutes with lot of people, gets information, lerans more about different things, thereby she develops her knowledge about today's world."

In today's world, and the technology that is available, a woman who stays at home has access to social media and blogs that can offer her the same opportunity to learn and develop knowledge about the world. In addition, I would argue that the stay at home mother has more time to take advantage of the material that is out there. Instead of spending 8 hours a day at work, where I can only assume she would be working and not have time to do research about how to raise her children, she will be at home, with her children.

"Secondly, by being a housewife woman doesn't feel necessity to dress up and look better, because there is no need to go out much and if she need to go out she do it to buy food, pick up kids from school and other cases. Consequently she dresses more practically and comfortable."

I don't see how a woman dressing comfortably is a con. In addition, I would say that by refusing to hold herself to society's expectation of how a woman should dress, with uncomfortable high heeled shoes and face painted with makeup, she will be able to instill in her daughters a sense that looks and sexuality are not everything.

"What is more, we all know that extra money does not come in, and by having a job woman make contribution to a family budget."

A stay at home mother makes a contribution to the family budget by providing services that would otherwise have to be paid for, such as taking care of the children rather than paying daycare. In addition, working out of the house can add additional costs to the budget, such as transportation, parking, work clothing, dry cleaning, etc. By staying at home, these expenses are avoided, lowering the impact of only have one wage earner. In addition, there are many opportunities for women to work from home, part time, that could bring home money but not add additional expenses to the family budget.

In addition, I would argue that being a stay at home mother adds so many benefits to the children that it far outweighs potential negatives. For example, children are raised under the watchful eyes of a parent rather than a stranger. They receive more love and affection. There are more opportunities to educate them based off that particular family's core values.

Therefore, I believe that a woman staying at home has significant benefits for the family and society and really is that good.

Unemployed women is awful. Women who work have a better chance of getting somewhere that's good in life. Women who just sit in the kitchen and cook and clean is horrible because what are you doing with your life? Nothing at all because your just in the house cleaning. Some women says staying a house wife is awesome because the house stays clean and food is always prepared for dinner. Women often have kids to take care of. So if they stay in the house all day whose going to help the dad(if there is one) to provide. If there is no dad at all, the house is not getting no financial support. A woman needs to work to provide for her family and herself of course. Women love to get new things all the time. So if you stay in the house all day where is the support coming from. Nowhere! Exactly my point. So women need to stop sitting around all day and do something for themselves.

Woman should not have to work if they have children. Woman have a great responsibility to raise the children to pass the human gene along. Children need love and compassion to thrive, not a part-time mother who is only home a few hours a night. The problem in today's world is economics. It is getting harder for a man to make enough money in order for the woman to stay home. Of course, if there are no children involved a woman has the right to work and it is very helpful. A woman should go to college and get a degree, it is great back-up if the man cannot provide for the family for health reasons. But, woman working and children in day care, is truly sad anyway you look at it. This is not how a family unit is supposed to work, there is not any denying that fact.

Women should work just like the rest of us. This is an egalitarian society where everyone works for there keep. As of 2011, there are 158.3 million woman in the USA. What if none of them worked? That is lost potential to half of our population. This isn't the 1950's anymore. Women should not be confined to the home as they have been for almost all of history. As an aspiring member of the scientific/medical community, I find it highly offensive that women working is even an issue. This country needs engineers, professors, doctors, researchers, politicians, etc. Women should go to college, get a good degree, and get good work instead of being a housewife. After all that women have worked for, they should NOT lower their status in society by settling for a mere housewife/man-pleaser. Anyone can raise children, cook, and clean with a full-time job. The drawbacks of being a full-time stay-at-home mom outweigh the benefits (which are next to none) by far.
