National Housewife’s Day


Today is National Housewife’s Day. Today is set to recognize the millions of hardworking housewives. The day honors the stay-at-home moms who take care of the children and the home. It is a 24/7 job that sometimes does not get the thank you that is much deserved. 

The term housewife is an old term that comes from the days when most families were supported by one income. The father worked and the mother stayed home to take care of the house and children. These days, usually both parents work outside the home. According to the Bureau of Labor And Statistics, in 61% of the households with children, both parents work outside the home. 

Of course, the age of the children impacts how much a parent stays home, too. And it isn’t always the mother who stays home. Sometimes it’s a dad. So, househusbands are on the rise. However, current statistics are hard to find. 

Even so, those who stay home and manage a household have a difficult task. Those who stay home are considered to be a domestic engineer, managing budgets, children, and organizing the life of the house.
