Stay-At-Home Mom

I start my day off by feeding the kids Making sure the sippy cups have on their lids Sometimes it gets messy but that’s okay I never let it bring down my day Three beautiful faces, created by me And my husband of course, how else would it be? Staring at me as I do all the chores Cleaning the counters and mopping the floors Doing the laundry and cooking the meals With just one kiss, there’s nothing I can’t heal I’m super mom, that’s what the like to say With just one smile, they lighten up my day They’re amazed at my knowledge, at what I know Like math, and all the colors of the rainbow Science, English, and so much History The things I know, to them, are a mystery One day they might know more than I do For know they’re learning that cows go ‘Moo’ Two years old, my babies are getting big I watch them in the sandbox as they dig They are my kids, and I love them so Which is why I never want to go Back to work is not where I want to be So I quit my job to be ‘Mommy for three’ With my hair pulled back in a ponytail I wait for the mailman to bring the mail I lay down the kids; it’s time for their nap I watch some tv with the dog on my lap Watching three kids every day and night May seem like, for you, there’s no end in sight But don’t be scared to take on the mission It’s not too hard to…...

Working vs Stay at Home Mothers

... Header:  Working  vs.  Stay  Home  Mothers     1     Research Paper Working vs. Stay Home Mothers Joseph Ochoa Com/172 September 18, 2012 Brenda Caine    WORKING  VS.  STAY  HOME  MOTHERS   2   Children have such an amazing connection with their mothers, it is usually the first word they learn and the name they scream when they are hurt. Working mothers have stormed into the business world at full force in the last 20 years. This has had an impact on the children today, although mothers who stay home have more one on one time with their kids. According to Youngberg, “One significant, reoccurring issue specifically related to a mother’s decision of whether to be active in the workforce or be a stay-at-home mother involves the cognitive effects such a decision might have on children” (2011). While Children get as much attention at daycare as they would at home, stay at home mothers have a bigger impact than working moms. Mothers who work and mothers who stay home have the same busy lifestyle. Mothers need to get groceries, get the kids to baseball practice and better have a husband who is splitting the responsibilities to help take off the pressure. Mothers who work start taking their children to daycare at the young age of six to eight weeks. Heidi Brennan said on the Dr. Phil show “Children do not do well with large separations at a time” (Stay-At-Home Moms Vs. Working Moms, 2012). Because of the job......

Robotic Surgery to Stay or Not to Stay

...Robotic Surgery To Stay Or Not Too Stay The use of surgical robots has increased greatly and is continuing to grow. Although these robots are already being used they have advantages as well as disadvantages. Surgical robots are only going to improve the outcomes for the patients, surgeons, and hospitals and will keep improving as time goes on, overcoming the disadvantages that are seen today. Many different types of robots are being used to carry out surgical procedures such as the Endowrist, AESOP, Zeus, PROBOT, ROBODOC, SOCRATES and the da Vinci being the most popular. Also there are many specific types of surgical procedures that are being carried out robotically such as urological, gynecological, cardiac, and general surgeries. “Shorter hospital stays, smaller incisions, less blood loss, quicker recovery, less painful, reduced rates of bacterial infections and blood transfusions, eliminating the surgeons hand tremors, more comfort and decrease in fatigue for the surgeon, 3D view, superior suturing skills, reverse fulcrum” are some of the advantages that affect the patient. Disadvantages involved with robot assisted surgery are “high cost, the large size of the robot, lack of compatible instruments and equipment, lengthy set up times, longer operative times, lack of haptic tactile feedback,” but are believed to disappear with more research and time. Surgical robots could be the most successful and most used technology in surgery in the future. “A surgical......

How I Feel About Moms That Stay Home

...HOW I FEEL ABOUT MOMS THAT STAY HOME Shane Sorensen Professor Barbara Hammons CHDV 115 6-10pm Mon, Wed HOW I FEEL ABOUT MOMS THAT STAY HOME Being a stay at home mother would seem like such a wonderful thing to enjoy, but in a world with many expectations and economic demands, it looks as though homes these days are missing one important ingredient, the mother. The mother is such an important role in a child’s life that without her needed nurturing, the child’s life could change dramatically for the worse. In what ways are mothers important? That’s what I would like to discuss, because there are many benefits to having a stay at home mom. The first way that comes to my mind is that the bond between mother and child is vital to the child’s mental, physical, emotional, and spiritual growth. First, let’s focus on their mental growth. Picture a child waking up every morning to a different face, never being able to bond or create a foundation for himself/herself. When that child gets into school, and tries to solve a problem, or fix a dispute between a friend, what if they don’t have the coping skills to work at that problem or relationship when they know that things in their own life are never routed or fixed steadily,(they won’t feel the importance of having steady lasting relationships etc.) they’ll never be able to develop the important skills like problem solving and bonding. Now I would like to focus on the physical aspects of a child’s......

Helicopter Moms

The problem is these so-called Helicopter Moms that supervise their children to the extreme. doing their laundry, checking their appointments, proofreading their papers just to name a few of the things. While the boys doesn’t seem to mind their mothers watchful eagle eye, they explain that they know she’s only doing what she does because she cares. They honestly doesn’t care that their mom is being their personal secretary, which she comments on herself and remarks isn’t far from the truth. Helen Johnson, a consultor on parental relations and author on the subject also voices her opinion, stating what the mothers are doing is going to hit the kids in the back on their way to grow up. The text ends up with Robyn explaining her determination for her kids, but also that she knows that there is a point where she has to let go and let them live their own lives. 2, Outlining the attitude on over-parenting on text 1 & 2 Text 1: Robyn Lewis is very overprotective and ever watchful for her children.

Which Parent Has the Ability to Stay Home and Watch the Children

...satisfaction needed or if staying at home is the best choice in the end. Examining the social, mental, physical and other aspects of health to determine if parents are really healthy after the decision has been made. Parents also assess the decisions associated with the cost and welfare of the children involved and how those issues play in the role of their health. Another aspect parents face is the choice of who will stay home with the children, can parents maintain a healthy and happy lifestyle with only one income. Evaluating the situation of whether or not to put the child in day care or perhaps with a family member can bring unhealthy distress upon the parents involved, even more so when they don’t have family nearby. Those who have children and choose to be more involved rather than returning to work, do not always notice their unhealthy lifestyle and the risks involved. Maintaining a healthy lifestyle 100% of the time will benefit the family as a whole, no matter what the job description is. The decision that parents make is a personal one and one the only that individual family can make and each aspect has positive and negative ones. Physically, moms who stay-at-home are more likely to gain weight from poor eating habits, consuming the leftovers from their children and drinking too much caffeine just to keep up, this can cause women to neglect themselves causing mental anguish. Scott Shepard, a psychologist says that the stay-at-home parents should eliminate......

...who works for a travel agent in town, clicks off the radio and pours herself a second cup of coffee. “Well, if you lot are playing hooky today, no way I’m going to work. It’s simply not right.” She picks up the telephone to call in. When she’s done, she looks at us. “Should I make breakfast?” Dad and I guffaw at the same time. Mom makes cereal and toast. Dad’s the cook in the family. Pretending not to hear us, she reaches into the cabinet for a box of Bisquick. “Please. How hard can it be? Who wants pancakes?” “I do! I do!” Teddy yells. “Can we have chocolate chips in them?” “I don’t see why not,” Mom replies. “Woo hoo!” Teddy yelps, waving his arms in the air. “You have far too much energy for this early in the morning,” I tease. I turn to Mom. “Maybe you shouldn’t let Teddy drink so much coffee.” “I’ve switched him to decaf,” Mom volleys back. “He’s just naturally exuberant.” “As long as you’re not switching me to decaf,” I say. “That would be child abuse,” Dad says. Mom hands me a steaming mug and the newspaper. “There’s a nice picture of your young man in there,” she says. “Really? A picture?” “Yep. It’s about the most we’ve seen of him since summer,” Mom says, giving me a sidelong glance with her eyebrow arched, her version of a soulsearching stare. “I know,” I say, and then without meaning to, I sigh. Adam’s band, Shooting Star, is on an upward spiral, which, is a great thing—mostly. “Ah, fame, wasted on the youth,” Dad says, but he’s smiling. I know he’s excited for......

To Stay or to Leave

...To Stay or to Leave? Christine Amargo SOC 120 Intro to Ethics and Social Responsibility Denise Antoon April 21, 2014 In the United States of America, we face many different ethical problems each and every day. Some of the ethical problems that we have to deal with are hunger, war, poverty, crime, and terrorism, but the biggest ethical issue the United States has to deal ethical with is immigration. There are many issues dealing with immigrations, such as immigration laws. Many questions come up about this topic in today's society, like how do we stop immigration or do we even stop it? Not all immigrants are bad some are useful to the United States; we have to remember that the first people in America were immigrants. We do not have the right to deport others back to their native land. Many people from different countries try so hard to get to United States looking for a better life. There are many reasons why immigrants migrate to different countries, especially the United States of America home of the free. Some reasons are employment opportunities or careers that are not available in their native land, improved quality of life, and refuge from war. Most immigrants focus on making sure their children have a better life they had; those people show the theory of utilitarianism. "Utilitarianism argues that, given a set of choices, the act we should choose is that which produces the best results for the greatest number affected by that choice" (Mosser, 1.6). These......

China Stay-at-Home Children

...have to stay in the rural area because their parents cannot afford to raise them in the city. Normally, these parents come back home once a year and stay for less than one week. So, children hardly have any time to spend with their parents during their childhood. According to a recent survey, there are more than 61 million (equal to the whole population of the United Kindom) stay-at-home children in China. 57.2% of them are taken care of by one of their parents, but for 42.8% of them, both parents are absent. Of the children living without their parents, 79.7% of them are taken care of by their grandparents,13% are cared for by the parents’ friends or relatives, and for 7.3% of them it is not known who is taking care of them. As we all know, an adult’s care is important to children. Without parents to take care of them, the mental health status of the stay-at-home children may be a big hidden trouble in the future. Some people think these children still have grandparents or relatives taking care of them. However, their grandparents also need to do farm work, and they lack the energy to take care of the children. As for their relatives, they also have children, and, normally, in rural areas, each family has at least two kids. The relatives would not have the energy to take care of all of the children. I figure that there are three ways to help solve this problem. The first is to promote rural area economy development. The most important reason causing the problem of......

Teen Mom

...Teen pregnancy When it comes to teen pregnancy, there is no stereotype. Some teens can be persuaded into waiting. Others will have an opinion about sex and not change their minds for anyone. All teens have their own opinions about everything that they do and don't do. One teen might be the result of a teenage pregnancy and choose to wait. On the other hand, they might think that it is no big deal. Being a teen mom myself opened my eyes to many things. I got pregnant, partially out of choice - I thought that a baby would bring me and my fiancé closer together. It was mostly an accident though. There was nothing that my parents or anyone else could have said to stop me from having sex. I was engaged to the man of my dreams and gave myself to him entirely. Sometimes, the teen parents stay together, but unfortunately, as in my case, they often do not. The father of my child was just as excited and was looking forward to the birth of our son, just as much as I was. We had many plans for the future. We had already known each other for approximately four years, dated for around three years, and were engaged for a little over two years, before my baby was born. Everything was going great. Our love was only strengthened by my pregnancy. Once we found out that I was having a boy, the father was even more excited. He now lives in Nebraska, with his girlfriend of three months. He has only seen his son two times, since he was born. He was also called three times. It is so......

I have an IPhone 6 Plus and have never paid a phone bill. I have my own bedroom with Direct TV and my own bathroom. I pay no rent.

My so-called friends keep telling me I should move out, get a place on my own. In their opinion I should be out on my own, living my life and living it up. I have convinced myself to some degree that their opinion is right, that I am nineteen and I should be out on my own. That my parents have no right to tell me what to do, or how to live, or to expect anything from me. My parents with their rules to do well in college, maintain a part time job, stay our of trouble and to please keep my room clean are just way too much to expect from me. I should be able to screw up if I want, I tell myself, and have an attitude because I am a man now. I can treat people however I want. I believe that for now I need to get my act together. I need to realize what have and start appreciating all that my parents have given to me and continue to give. I must better assess the opinions and......
