Just my two cents on this comment:

I’m interested in how a woman with a home business can make enough money to significantly add to the family income and still fit everything in? For example:
Sleep 6 hours
Shower and dress 30 min
Homeschool 4 hours,
Cooking, cleaning, household chores, etc. 4 hours,
Child care not related to schooling or for children not in school 2 hours
Prayer and devotions, 30 mi
Meals with family 1 hour
Quality time with the husband, 30 min
So far we are at 18.5 hours. That leaves 5.5 hours for the home business and everything else in a woman’s life. What home business only takes 5 hours a day and yet pays enough to add significantly to the family’s finances?
WHAT? Only 30 mins for the husband? The relationship that is most important, that the entire foundation of the family rests on and he gets 30 minutes! I am sorry, but dishes can wait! This is why I disagree over the standard form over substance thinking that traditionalists apply. Relationships are what matters most, both with your kids and your husband. And if that means not having a perfectly clean house, not always having home cooked meals from scratch, so that you can spend more time with your family–then so be it!
Traditionalists criticize the heartless working woman because at the end of the day she is too tired to spend any quality time or simply doesn’t have the time to spend with their husband. Well, if the traditionalists are only carving out 30 mins, they aren’t doing much better.
