Well researched and written book about negative impact to children of parents (specifically mother mainly addressed) working full time outside of the home. The writer writes from the perspective that a mother should be present in the home until approximately age 3 at least and presents research and opinions to support her belief.

Dr. Hunter has written a book of encouragement to women who choose to stay at home with their children and the benefits to their children. She examines child development research, her clinical work with women (she's a psychologist) and her personal experience. It is a combination of practical, scientific and personal information on motherhood.

An excellent look atthe real-life advantages and disadvantages of the working and stay-at-home mother, a fascinating read.

A great book, this author has done her research! I think it would be a great book also for a mom that is wanting to stay at home but not completely sure if it is the best thing. Lots of real life examples and facts about child development.

Kind of outdated and not actually realistic.

It's one of the toughest choices a mother will ever make: to "work" or be a full-time mother? It is also a long-running debate between moms who feel they contribute more to society at work than at home and those who feel mothering is not just a full-time job but a calling. In this newly repackaged, expanded, and updated edition of Home by Choice, national authority Dr. Brenda Hunter brings research to the discussion table, arguing that no one can replace the care a mother provides. As kids grow up with parental presence, she says, they develop a sense of home that will serve them all their lives. Dr. Hunter speaks directly to moms, addressing their unique concerns-such as financial pressure, support from husbands, and personal fulfillment. She makes a well-reasoned case for the enduring effects of a mother's love.
