There is only one good reason for wanting to be a housewife.

It is a parent that wants to give their children the best possible care and to personally make sure that the children are taught the values and culture of the parent.

Do housewives earn a salary?

Yes, I earn a very good tax free salary, which my husband pays into my bank account.

In order to be a housewife, you and your partner must talk about it and come to an agreement.

My partner earns a good salary and can afford to support me and our children.

An annual bonus is paid, my bonus is double my salary and I get it at the end of November every year, in time for Christmas shopping.

Do housewives get holidays?

Yes, housewives must have holidays and breaks away from the home in order to rejuvenate and rest away from the many daily responsibilities.

On a weekly basis, usually a Sunday, the housewife can be taken to a restaurant, where she does not have to cook and clean and can go home to a clean kitchen.

On a monthly basis, the housewife can be taken on a "weekend away", this can be self-catering, but the preferred destination for a hardworking housewife is a 2day stay at a hotel, where she can relax and have no responsibilities.

On a yearly basis, the housewife can be taken to a relaxing holiday destination.

Is being a housewife a stressful job?

Yes, because it entails looking after children.

The younger the child/children are, the more stressful the situation is.

Taking care of babies are the most stressful, because they can be hurt or get sick easily.

The stress comes into play on different levels.

The most stressful is the responsibility of keeping the child safe and alive.

A baby or small child
- can choke
- drown
- fall on head
- get shocked by electricity
- crawl into road/traffic
- cry a lot
- be colicky
- be ill with coughs and flu

and it is the housewife that has the psychological responsibility to prevent accidental harm and to nurture a sick child back to health.

Teenager Stress:

Young children growing into teenagers, can be difficult and tantrumish, because of fluctuating hormone levels.

This is a time when the housewife must be very patient and understanding.

Teenagers are becoming less reliant on the parent and more aware of themselves as seperate entities.

Loud music and new habits are normal for this age group and should be respected.

This is also a time when the housewife will experience high levels of stress.

Every housewife will have a very definite way of doing things and the order in which they are done, this should be respected.

Housewives will be better able to anticipate the family's emotional needs and the working partner should listen to advise, especially regarding recommendations about the children.

The hardworking creative housewife deserves a good salary, she/he is the heart of the home and if she's not happy, everyone will suffer the consequences.
