The percentage of stay at home mothers has increased from 23% in 1999 to 29% in 2012. Stay at home mothers stay at home for several reasons such as not being able to get employed and taking care of their family. Stay at home mothers can be single, cohabited or married. Stay at home mothers and working mothers have a lot of demographic differences. More public opinions are supporting stay at home mothers.
In my opinion, I feel that the percentage of stay at home mothers should drop if the education standards for female will be higher. I also believe that working mothers are better than stay at home mothers. Although working mothers cannot accompany us during weekdays, they still can earn the family more money. However, the amount of available jobs are not enough to satisfy the demand for jobs, causing the stay at home mothers to increase.
