Q: Is there still a stigma attached to being a stay-at-home mom, or is it cool to be the home-front CEO?

Sadly, women who choose stay-at-home parenthood are still frowned upon by some. But being at home with your kids is actually a creative, fun and challenging (albeit ex­hausting) experience. So find out what works best for you and quit worrying about what others think. If playing peekaboo, doing arts and crafts, and going to playgroups makes you cranky, you’re not doing anyone any favours by staying home. If you spend your days at the office pining to hear the spine crack on I Wish That I Had Duck Feet and savouring nap-time coffee breaks, do it.
