Editor's note: According to a recent survey of Chinese women, a majority of mothers born after 1990 want to be stay-at-home moms. Many women are aware of the challenges of motherhood, especially when they have to juggle a full-time job outside the home. Which is worthwhile, being a full time working or a stay at home mum?

I love being a stay at home mom. In the beginning it was truly rough for me from being a workaholic to staying at home. Yet, I did not want my child to face growing up with both parents at work. So after discussing it with my husband, we decided that I would be the one to stay at home. Now, our daughter is soon to be 3 years old, and has an amazing personality. It's not for everyone but it is very rewarding in the long haul.
