WORKING MOTHERS – GOOD AND BAD

First, let’s talk about GOOD working mothers.  These are either single-parent mothers who MUST work to take care of their children…or mothers in households where the father’s income is NOT sufficient to pay for the bare necessities of life and other essentials.  GOD BLESSES THESE MOTHERS!  In fact, God gives them an EXTRA BLESSING because of the extra work they have to do.

 

Now, let’s talk about BAD working mothers.  These are mothers in households where the father’s income IS sufficient to pay for the bare necessities of life and other essentials.  GOD WITHHOLDS SOME BLESSING FROM THESE MOTHERS!  Studies have shown that the children of MOTHERS WHO DO NOT HAVE TO WORK…that the children of these mothers are not as well-behaved, do not do as well in school, and are generally not as happy as other children.  A part of what is going on here is that these children are being taught by their mothers that “money is God.”  This is done directly by what their mothers’ say and indirectly by what their mothers’ do, including holding down a job.

 

We may have more to say on this subject later.

 

 

Footnote:  GENERALLY, the children we refer to in this article are below the age of 14.
