Neglected, walking until the afternoon in pajamas and with curlers in her hair. Bitter, whining, eternally tired. A woman without ambition. Her life revolves around the family, she devotes all her time to her, spending her days looking after children, washing, cooking and cleaning. Nothing else interests her. She has no hobby because her passions are childish. He does not like reading books, he does not go to the cinema or theater - because it is a shame about the money. She is also often a lazy egoist who does not want to work. She doesn't mind being supported by her husband. He regards it as his duty. Who's that "Domestic chicken", or rather its stereotypical image, but still strongly rooted in society. This concept has a very pejorative meaning. However is this really the case? Is being a "domestic chicken" a shame?

Being with a child is not a waste of time

Some time ago, in the environment of young people starting work, the prevailing belief was that career is the most important thing in life. First you need to get a dream, well-paid job, complete several language and refresher courses, buy a flat, a car, develop your passions and interests, make your dreams come true, explore a little bit of the world, "go crazy" before you can afford a child and stabilization . For family means saying goodbye to life and transforming it into a multi-task home robot without time function for itself.

Many girls are allergic to the slogan "domestic chicken". Being her is treated as a life failure and admitting to being her is a shame. It seems, however, that the galloping rat race, especially concerning the demographic highs of the early 1980s, is slowly starting to slow down ...

More and more women, tired of constant rivalry and life in a constant race, turn back to peaceful motherhood. I asked five friends my mothers if they are going to return to work after maternity leave. As it turned out - four of them want to stay at home or work part-time. Of course, this may be the case and such a small group can certainly not be considered representative. However, this type of opinion is increasingly found on online forums, which is also confirmed by surveys. Young mothers - if financial conditions do not stand in the way - are happy to stay at home with their children, deciding, for example, on parental leave. - The first three years are the most important for child development. She should be with her mother then. I can't imagine leaving a one-year-old bitch with a stranger and returning to work full-time - explains Patrycja, mother of four-month-old Jasia. Women are beginning to see again the value of motherhood and dedication to the child. And they do not consider it a waste of time but an investment for the future. Staying at home does not mean completely giving up social and professional life. Today's "domestic chicken" deviates significantly from its stereotype. Today, many moms are proud to say about their new role.

Work doesn't have to mean leaving home

You really don't want to go back to work ?! - many will react with disbelief to our decision to stay at home with their children. Sometimes they will feel sorry for us. After all, from this constant sitting at home you can go crazy! In addition, taking such a long break from work, we will leave the industry, stop being competitive and our professional career will certainly suffer. However, work does not have to be a full-time job and earning money is not always associated with the need to spend several hours a day outside the home and leave the child in the care of others.

Many mothers successfully combine work with childcare. Women work part-time, under a specific task contract, mandate contract, at weekends. They also set up their own companies. The fact - they do not get up at six o'clock regularly, to appear at work at eight o'clock and spend the whole day there, they have more freedom and often can decide on the form and time of the task themselves. They often do this at home. When? Most often when the child is sleeping. Early in the morning, during the morning nap, at night. Sometimes they gain an hour of time thanks to their grandparents who will take the stroll for a walk.

Reconciling professional life with being a full-time mom is not an easy matter, but they do. Often completely not because they have to but because they want to. They want to grow and earn some money. And what can they often hear from others? Unfortunately, many people still think that if a woman decides to stay at home with her child, then she certainly does not want to work.

"Domestic chicken" with passion

Modern "domestic chickens" are "chickens" with passion. Women, to be able to break away from their daily duties, set up blogs, sign up for language courses, develop their interests, play sports ... They value the time spent with a child, without forgetting about their needs. They are ambitious, resourceful and happy with their choice. And they certainly can't be said to be lazy. Despite this, they are constantly criticized. So young and let herself be a hostess! You probably get bored all day at home? Don't you mind that you're not making money for yourself? - these words can be heard most often from ... women. Yes.

We, the others, are able to be here the most severe and it is easy for us to judge someone's decision. Someone will say: sure, and I know mothers who don't want to do anything. They can spend days watching TV, painting nails and shopping online. On the other hand, it cannot be said that if a woman returns to work, she does not do housework. I agree. It is often a matter of choice (the decisive factor in many cases is family finances). However, let's not judge the decisions of young mothers hastily. Those who stayed with the child at home or the proverbial "domestic hens" are less and less often "only" cooks and cleaners, caring for a child and more often simply happy, satisfied and well-groomed women, denying any stereotypes.
