Coming from a working mom scenario and now staying home, I can personally attest to you on what top 10 benefits I saw for moms staying at home.

It broke my heart after recovering from my mild stroke incident.

Taking more time to stay home for muscle strengthening allowed me to see the developed values of my children.

As the elderly says, more experience eyes may tell where children are going at with the set of choices they are making.

I don’t intend to get much from your time.

So here they are:

It is a reality now that hubby must be assisted for livelihood provision. Or just think of owning your own money. They often say that wives are these to their husbands,

” Your money is mine. My money is mine as well.” (ha-ha)

I have learned that with as little as 2 hours a day, patient and persevering people succeeded in business ventures. My initial venture is my online business while I am exploring traditional food business for launching later. Focusing first in my online business venture.

It is my belief, basing from the Bible that being a wife and a mother is a Godly calling. The tasks are overwhelming and it is God who provides wisdom, grace and strength to carry on. In fact, I am writing next on how you can be a noble helpmeet to your husband.

Also, I personally experienced some and saw opportunities for the other benefits.

There are a lot other benefits. You could choose how you could spend your spare time.

Or if you are considering to stay home, you can look at these benefits and weigh them with the cons you are foreseeing.

Your priorities matter.

I first choose to provide for my children not only their needs but even wants.

Admittedly, I spoil them a little.

But it is not too late.

There is more time to replenish and cherish.

As the Bible says,

“For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?

Mark 8:36

May we not focus on many material things of the world, but more of personally caring for the precious souls in our life.

  1. Hi there
    You are very right. There are so many benefits of being a stay home mom. My kids are happier when I am on leave than when I have to go to work. The environment is brighter, food is nicer and everyone is happier.
    My ultimate goal is to one day be a stay home mom.
    Thank you for the post

    1. Yes, you may stay home at the right time.

      There is a season for everything.

      It wasn’t that easy when I started coming from a going-out-for-work Mom.

      But it is very rewarding after being able to adjust.

      I am still adjusting but getting more rewards in every winning situation with the family.

  2. Hi, it is true that a woman performs so many roles. It becomes easier to perform our responsibilities towards our family when we are at home. As a woman, I did not realize the fact until I stopped working a traditional job. Life is short and the time that goes by, never comes back again. So, we must value and enjoy every moment without getting stressed of 9 to5 job if it is possible to stay at home and still make some money.
    Thank you,

    1. Thanks for seeing the importance and benefits of Mom’s staying home.

      In my six months of stay at home, I had my own struggles as a controlling mom coming from consultancy services for food firms. I made lots of adjustments and balancing to fulfil my role as a mom. It include mastering my emotions and finding my optimum capacity as a person. My children by the way are now 21 and 19 years old.

      Is it ok for me to ask how long have you left your traditional job? I am just thinking if we can share experiences and opinions for our Mom duties for lighter and easier daily routine. That is, if you are interested and can find time.

  3. This is a great list of benefits for moms staying home. It is quite difficult to raise kids. Juggling a number of different schedules, making sure everyone is fed, and helping kids to learn and grow is quite the list of things to do. When you put a job on top of it all, it can quickly become quite overwhelming. I’m happy to hear that you’re having success with your online business and it fits into your lifestyle working from home. Best of luck to you! 

    1. Thanks for appreciating my article Melinda. Hoping to inspire other Moms to stay home with more family caress while earning at a lighter schedule. Income doesn’t have to be set too high, it is inevitable at Wealthy Affiliate, however, if we truly commit to work on it.

  4. I am a stay-at-home-mom ever since and I agree with all the benefits you listed. I thank God for allowing me to stay at home with my kids and manage the household personally, though I understand that not all women want to be stay-at-home-mom. I think it all depends on where God wants us to be. There are women who are called to be in the workforce. Either way, all moms are great and wonderful, be it stay-at-home or working. But I love the privilege of being a SAHM!

    1. You are right about the calling of where God wants us to be and Moms are all great and wonderful. I remember my Mom who reared us while working as government employee. She used to wake up at dawn doing household duties before she go to office and stay late at night. 

      We are very blessed to be Moms. God fill us with joy to fulfill our calling!

  5. I love all the 10 benefits. I am sorry to hear about your stroke, I hope you are okay now. I have to say that I love the fact that we get to bond with the family. It is hard to be a working mom and just keep on going and we just forget on why we go to work in the first place. 

    1. Thanks for liking the benefits and I am happy that you have that special time for your family. The family is really enriched. 

      I am getting better each day. Just last week, friends I just met along the way greeted me for my posture improvement. I am looking further for my complete restoration. I know God grant it to me already, just waiting patiently for the complete restoration while seeing my daily progress.

      It is just like believing with  success progress at Wealthy Affiliate.

  6. What are the benefits of being a mom that works from home? I frequently get asked this. And here I sum up my response:
    You have a routine.
    You can focus on children.
    You get to interact with other moms that work from home
    You will be free of job-related stress.
    You can cherish the precious moments with your little ones.
    Spending time with children is de-stressing.
    It is gratifying to be a full-time mother.

    1. Hi Ann, 

      Thanks for sharing your own list. Great list! And they are very true, especially if your children are on their early stage. I found a somewhat different scenario with grown up kids, who really grew with other guardians. This was actually my personal situation and we are all adapting and flexing to meet together. Love sharing to others Moms and bond for me to learn as well.
