The Case for Stay at Home Parents
Emma Lindsay

Hi Emma,

I so appreciate this post and just the effort it takes to think into things this deeply because I have been invalidated by the constant refrain — as an at home mom — “everyone needs their own purpose/mission/job” as if my work makes me an empty whimpy soul not living up to her potential. As it turns out my kids are growing up and I am in fact moving on to my next endeavor, but it will be no less valuable than my work as a parent has been.

Emma, you go. I thank you for being my ally and affording me some dignity! — It means more than you know… though my intention here is to make sure you know it now. You are courageous.

Much love, Emerald
