Homemaking is the word that we give to spouses who maintain a family home as a full time occupation. Traditionally this has always been the female in a male-female partnership but more recently this has started to change.

Woman now command high salaries and it can be more economically viable for the man to stay at home whilst the woman becomes the financial provider.

Homemaking skills are somewhat hard to place into categories and cover a wide range of skilled and unskilled areas. Skilled areas include crafts and design, logistics and time management.

Day to day tasks for a home maker can involve a frantic schedule of rousing the household, preparing meals, cleaning and household maintenance, acting as a chauffeur for the family, organizing events and managing a tight budget.

Homemaking is an essential part of most families as running a busy household requires focus, drive and above all a large amount of time.
