Few of my batchmates in college are stay-at-home moms like me. They used to be in the corporate world, too, but choose to be a SAHM to take care of their young kids while their husbands are working abroad. But being at home the whole day doesn’t mean we are less productive or doesn’t contribute to the family finances. I, for one, maintains several blogs. And I can safely say that I earn from them and has helped my husband pay our bills and sometimes pay our children’s tuition. Some of my batchmates are into business. One is into selling shoes, bags and clothes. One is into beads and accessory business. She sells pandora bracelet in offices and tiangges during holiday season. So now, who would say that being a SAHM can’t be independent and productive.
