Should new moms go to work instead of staying at home?

  • No responses have been submitted.
  • No, an absentee mother damages the growth potential of a child.

    The most important time in a child's life to learn and grow is from birth to around five years old when they enter elementary school. Speech, motor skills and critical thinking are all developed during this time period. Children who spend time with their mothers instead of at a day care are much more mentally developed than children in opposite situations. If it is economically feasible, it makes much more sense for a mother to stay home with a child then return to the workforce.

  • New moms should have the chance to stay at home.

    The first few weeks of a baby's life are a critical time for emotional bonding between mother and child. Most mothers are also physically drained in the time following childbirth. If it is at all possible, it is of great importance to both mom and baby to be home together in the first few weeks.

  • No, new moms should have the choice to work or not.

    Babies need their mothers as a source of nourishment, comfort and growth. Humans should not separate them unnaturally in order to create more workers. That said, every family should be able to choose which parent stays home with their children to care for them, so if the mother wishes to work she should be able to do so.

  • Moms should have the opportunity to stay at home with their new babies.

    The time right after giving birth is a very special time for new mothers. Not only is it a period of adjustment, it is a time during which she gets to know and bonds with her new child. Rushing a mother back to work can have a lifelong impact on the relationship between mother and child as well as negatively affect the mental health of both mother and child.
