A woman who stays home to take care of the house, the kids, the husband and the pets. She works up a sweat, has anxiety attacks and burst into tears when a 2 year old says "no!" for the 100th time that day after having to picking up dog poop from the livingroom floor, washing 3 loads of laundry, washed all the dishes, went grocery shopping with 2 screaming kids, who get sick and throw up in the middle of the store. Then she comes home ,cleans up the kids, starts to make dinner with both kids hanging on her leg, only to have it burn. She recieves no thanks from anyone and gets no paycheck.
What a woman becomes AFTER she realises that there are things more important in life than HERSELF. She is able to realise that by emasculating her husband she is doing more harm than good and that by supporting her husband and children and taking care of the homefront she can contribute to the welfare of her family and society by ensuring that her children don't become 'latch key' kids. A housewife is a woman who is not content to allow someone else to raise her family.
