With the world being what it is. I think it is important for stay-at-home moms, now more than ever,to really think outside the box. With material things production in over-drive and stressful lives making lots of tension (school shootings, etc.) we moms are in a power position ( and generally, we don't know it) to show and direct kids away from the precipice of selfish egotism (for one thing.) I think the first step is to be present in the "big" picture, and not squirreled away gossiping with friends. But, taking charge in our homes and communities, to create a better life than the one that is offered, even if it is a good life good already.
I watched my mom reupholster a couch and chair when I was a kid, that is one small example that comes to mind, of how she gave me the feeling that I could do anything I set my mind to.
