Overview

It's one of the toughest choices a mother will ever make: to "work" or be a full-time mother? It is also a long-running debate between moms who feel they contribute more to society at work than at home and those who feel mothering is not just a full-time job but a calling. In this newly repackaged, expanded, and updated edition of Home by Choice, national authority Dr. Brenda Hunter brings research to the discussion table, arguing that no one can replace the care a mother provides. As kids grow up with parental presence, she says, they develop a sense of home that will serve them all their lives. Dr. Hunter speaks directly to moms, addressing their unique concerns-such as financial pressure, support from husbands, and personal fulfillment. She makes a well-reasoned case for the enduring effects of a mother's love.
