Lack of community-based support for mothers at home

Many mothers/fathers who would like to work at home with their children, feel daunted at the prospect of caring for their children and running a house seven days a week. They need to be supported in practical ways in order to be happy and fulfilled in their full-time parenting role.

Parents need opportunities to build confidence in their parenting skills and have personnel available to answer and discuss problems they may be facing with them. Community-based support systems need to be put in place to help parents be the best parents that they can be, so that they and their children live in a positive and encouraging environment.
