The task of helping girls establish their identity can be challenging from a religious perspective as well. Some fundamentalist denominations feel that women should not work outside the home. This teaching inhibits a woman’s desire to explore career options and to do meaningful, productive work beyond being a wife and mother. Applying this ancient principle to modern day reality creates a tremendous dichotomy for women in terms of their own life choices, but also in raising daughters.[/b]
I think that applies to most SAHMs, not just the religious ones...we have to balance the teaching our daughters that they can do anything and be anything without making those women that choose to stay at home with their children look like "less" than those with successful careers. I absolutely want my children to go to college and have the option of whatever career they choose. I also want for them to stay at home with their own children, at least for a little while. I guess it all goes back to women having to "do it all" and feeling pressured to start teaching them to handle it all while they're young.
